Kupchick celebrates CT Voices for Animals Day

State Rep. Brenda Kupchick (R-132) participated in the annual Connecticut Voices for Animals Day at the State Capitol on March 6.

The day is an opportunity for animal lovers across Connecticut to network with the animal protection community, spend time with adorable and adoptable pets, and speak directly with your state lawmakers about issues impacting animal welfare.

Rep. Kupchick spoke to the group and focused her remarks on critical legislation affecting Connecticut’s companion animals, including legislative efforts to ensure that every dog and cat has access to proper, humane shelter, is protected from animal cruelty.

Rep Kupchick has introduced several animals welfare bills. A bill that would require animals, especially Beagles who are used for testing be given a second chance through rescue instead of euthanasia. A bill that would end breed discrimination by insurance companies, a bill that would remove AR accelerated rehabilitation for animal abusers, and a bill that would strengthen the states law in tethering to include proper shelter.

“The Connecticut Voices for Animals Day is really about celebrating our companion animals and showing solidarity among those of us who feel morally obligated to protect them,” said Rep. Kupchick.
