In 2013, we joined others to successfully fight against the passage of the Animal Cruelty and Abuse bill (also referred to as the Ag-Gag bill).  The bill would have deterred investigation into animal cruelty cases by reducing the number of undercover videos that help stop instances of abuse.  We actively watch the bills going through our state Congress to prevent any similar laws from going into effect.

State Activism via Non-lobbying Efforts

One of the first projects of Friends of Williamson County Animal Center was to revise the rules and regulations pertaining to dogs and cats in Williamson County, Tennessee.    FWCAC took great care to make sure animals were protected under the law.  The existing structure was revised and strengthened to what it is today.  Click here to read the regulations!
