Kentucky Animal Welfare Legislation Seminar ~ December 6th

Do you want to better understand our animal laws and how we can work together to strengthen them? We can all agree that our domestic animal laws need to be improved but not everyone understands what we need to do to make that happen. This Seminar will bridge that information gap. 


Education is the key to positive change. This seminar will discuss a variety of topics raised by concerned citizens across Kentucky.  Speakers will address the current laws, what they mean and what we need to do to improve them. 

 
The aim of this seminar is to help concerned animal welfare people across Kentucky better understand the law, the process to change the law and how to effectively communicate with community leaders and law makers so we can problem solve our issues and make some positive changes.  


Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity. You are going to want to empower yourself with this information so you can be a part of the movement this coming legislation session.


SEMINAR TOPICS:

  • Learn exactly what our animal welfare laws are and what they legally mean.
  • Learn which laws need to be improved so we can collect the necessary data to know how to best protect the animals and the citizens in Kentucky.
  • Learn the legislative process. If we learn how to work the system we can make the changes we want to see in our animal welfare laws.
  • Learn how to contact and communicate with your State Representative and State Senator so that your words are the most effective when you have the opportunity to express an animal welfare concern.
