New York Legislation to Protect Animals

Please help NYSHA be a strong voice for animals by ensuring that all our representatives make animal protection a priority. Educate yourself, know the issues, follow legislative activities, make phone calls, write letters, and keep fighting! We see growing support from our state legislators; however, much more work needs to be done.

There are many important animal protection issues that need legislative action.  Click on NYSHA’s Legislation Chart below to see bills for this year.  Our energy must be focused on a limited number of bills, which we will highlight, and we urge you to help us get these passed.  You may find another one on our chart that you feel strongly about.  Contact your own legislators’ offices to let them know you support (or oppose) the bill.  You can simply state your support or opposition to the bill, or gather facts about the issue and politely discuss your position with legislative staff.
