Massachusetts: Prevent Animal Suffering
This action is for Massachusetts residents only.
Protect animals by asking your state legislators to support An Act Addressing Investigations of Reports of Animal Abuse and Neglect (S.2672), an omnibus animal protection bill redrafted by the Judiciary Committee and known as the “minibus.”
The bill would:
- Prevent convicted animal abusers from owning or accessing animals and facilitate forfeiture of the animal victim
- Allow civil citations to be issued for animals kept in cruel conditions
- Direct certain fines collected to the Homeless Animal Prevention and Care Fund, which provides critical animal health services and animal control officer trainings
- Clarify the cross-reporting law allowing human service agency employees and contractors to report suspected abuse
Please ask your state legislators to co-sponsor this omnibus animal protection bill.
