Georgia State Legislative Advocacy

If you are interested in improving things for companion animals in Georgia, one of the best things you can do is get to know your state representatives and state senator, educate them on the homeless pet overpopulation crisis and let them know it matters to you.  (See Sample Letter below)  If you do,

        

  1. Don't assume your legislators know what you know.  Give them information and be kind and courteous and let them know you'd like a chance to give them your input.

  2. Write, print, sign and mail a letter to each one.  Emails are too easily passed over and/or deleted.  Written letters that show effort and time spent on your part communicate importance and demand their attention.

  3. Call them after a week and follow up.  Make sure they have read your letter and know your name.
