PLANO — Representative Shaheen continues to make animal welfare a top priority, working alongside the Texas
Humane Legislative Network (THLN) in their efforts to increase animal protections in Texas. The “Mr. Wilson
Bill,” named after an abused animal that was rescued by one of Representative Shaheen’s constituents, requires
adequate shelter for animals left outside or unattended and prevents them from being inhumanely tethered.
“I am proud of the work that THLN and I have done together to fight animal cruelty throughout Texas,”
Representative Shaheen said. “We are committed to speaking out on behalf of our defenseless pets and creating
laws that protect them.”
