2024 Georgia Responsible Pet Owner Initiative


Our first legislative effort will be to ask the Georgia State decisionmakers for the funds to build a program designed to start to stem the tide of animals coming into Georgia's Animal Shelters at breakneck speed.


Please share this with your state lawmakers and ask for their support.  As a constituent, you are far more likely to get their support than any political group because you are voters in their district.  That's why it is critical that Georgia's animal lovers reach out personally with phone calls and/or emails to their state senators and representatives.    












Look up your state senator and state representative by entering your address here:
