Find your legislators. Write emails, make phone calls, and write a letter of support for Senator Hill's Animal Protection Bill (no number assigned yet). You can start with our sample letter if you need ideas. Send us a copy of the letter via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail: 1426 33rd Ave, Gulfport MS 39501. We also ask that you let us know who your representatives are so we can see how much ground we are covering.
Please see if you have connections with any of these groups, and let us know who you are able to contact to garner support for the bill.
Since the start of the legislative session, two house bills have been introduced which are nearly identical to Senator Hill's. Senator Hill's bill was pre-filed (filed before the start of the legislative session) but has not yet been assigned a number or committee. Our board members will be reviewing them and consulting with Senator Hill to see how we can continue to best support her efforts. Once we have a clear path of action we will share it with you!
