Your CT State Rep.
Needs to Hear from You!
The last day of Connecticut’s legislative session is May 9, and things are moving quickly in the General Assembly—we need your help!

H.B. 5355, legislation that would improve existing state law to clarify a dog owner’s obligations during extreme weather, could receive a vote in the Connecticut House of Representatives at any time.

The bill would require that dogs left exposed for more than 15 minutes to harmful weather conditions or in an area under a weather advisory have continuous access to clean, dry, well-constructed shelter that will maintain a dog’s body temperature.

These simple reforms would allow earlier intervention to protect dogs who are kept outdoors from needless cruelty.

What You Can Do

Will you place a quick call to your state representative, Rep. Christopher Ziogas, at (860) 240-8585? You can simply tell the receptionist that you are a constituent and that you urge Rep. Christopher Ziogas to: 1) support H.B. 5355 (the adequate dog shelter bill) and 2) ask House leadership to call the bill for a vote.  

Thank you, Connecticut.
