Bill 2035 will set new precedence in creating both Habitat and Anit-tethering laws for the animals of Rhode Island. The current laws are tying the hands of State and local animal enforcement agencies. Our animals in Rhode Island need better:
* SHELTER: No more barrels, clapboard makeshift miserable housing. No more pets left outdoors to suffer freezing temperatures.
* ENVIRONMENT: For our animals will be free of dangerous debris, refuse, and hazardous materials.
* NO MORE CRUEL TETHERING!!: This will enact strict guidelines to STOP those who would otherwise leave their pet chained outside 24/7.
I will be testifying at the Senate Hearing scheduled for 2/15 to compel our General Assembly to make this a law this year. My testimony will be in support of the RISCPA's efforts to enact this legislation. We NEED YOU! Please make your voice heard! Sign this petition, which I will provide to the committee in support of better laws for our animal residents. Please do not fail us. This legislation has been stalled in process for too long. Sign and tell your legislators that you care about how our animals are treated. Get your friends and family to sign as well! Thank you for your support!!
