Using Local Legislation to Protect Animals 2019
presented by Elizabeth Holtz, October 2, 2019
Want to take the next step in your animal advocacy? Learn the skills you need to pass laws protecting animals at the local level! Local laws are critical – not only do they help individual animals in your community but they prime the pump for passing similar laws at higher levels of government.
This webinar focuses on retail pet sale bans – laws that prohibit pet stores from selling puppies and kittens (and sometimes other animals like rabbits) who are commercially bred. Retail pet sale bans are a powerful way to fight back against puppy mills, and you could pass one in your own community!
Animal Legal Defense Fund Campaigns Manager Elizabeth Holtz will walk you through the steps to pass a ban in your city as well as share tips that can be applied to any local legislative campaign.
