Texas: Take Action for Dogs in Hot Cars
THIS ACTION IS CLOSED.
We need your help to make Texas the next state to protect dogs in hot cars! SB 250 would protect Good Samaritans who rescue domestic animals (like dogs and cats) from motor vehicles by granting civil immunity in certain circumstances.
Animals left in hot cars die every year – even on a mild day, the temperature can go from 70 degrees to 89 degrees in just 10 minutes. On warmer days, the temperature can reach 114 degrees in the same amount of time. In a state like Texas where the weather is often warm year-round, it’s critical that people are empowered to protect animals trapped in hot vehicles.
Learn more about dogs in hot cars.
Unfortunately, SB 250 has hit an impasse – and we need people who live in Senator Brandon Creighton and Senator Bryan Hughes’ districts to make phone calls in support of SB 250 right now! When expressing your reviews, please be polite and respectful.
Sample Message: I am your constituent, and I care about protecting companion animals in hot cars. Please vote YES on SB 250.

Help make Texas the 15th state to protect Good Samaritans who rescue companion animals from hot cars. Urge Senator Creighton and Senator Hughes to support SB 250.
