groundbreaking no kill legislation introduced in TX

a new bill introduced in texas legislature would "abolish the gas chamber, ban 'convenience killing' (when there are empty cages), mandate collaboration by requiring shelters to work with non-profit rescue organizations, mandate transparency by requiring shelters to report how many animals they kill and more."

wow. just wow.

it is based on model legislation written by the no kill advocacy center. similar practices have resulted in a 92% save rate in some communities. this is a giant step forward for a no kill nation.
