LEGISLATIVE HOTLINE 1-800-372-7181

If you would like to leave a message for your legislator concerning one or more of the animal welfare bills on this page, follow these directions:


  • Dial 1-800-372-7181
  • Tell the operator this is your first time calling (they are always nice and will walk you through the process).
  • The operator will ask for your address so they can find your district and who your legislators are.
  • Then the operator will ask which bills you are calling about.  You will need to know the bill numbers. They all start with a SB (senate bill) or a HB (house bill)
  • You will then say you would like your legislates to either SUPPORT or OPPOSE the bill you mentioned.
  • That's it!  After you hang up.... notice there is a feeling of accomplishment because you know you were a voice for the animals that need you the most.
