Today we spoke with with Rick Hall and Andrea Logan from the Washington Alliance for Humane Legislation (WAHL), a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the passage and effective implementation of humane animal welfare laws, regulations, and policies in Washington State and to educate the public about animal welfare issues.

Andrea Logan is a founder of the nonprofit organization Pawsitive Alliance, serves on the board of directors for the nonprofit organizations Washington Alliance for Humane Legislation and Valley Animal Partners, and is a volunteer with the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project.

Rick Hall serves on the board of directors of Washington Alliance for Humane Legislation and is a member of the advisory board of the Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project.

We chatted with Rick and Andrea about their work during this legislative session.  Of note, this coming Tuesday and Wednesday, committees for our state legislature in Olympia will be considering a spay/neuter assistance bill in both the House and the Senate.  WAHL has worked diligently on this piece of legislation and many others.

The Spay/Neuter Assistance Bills are SB 5202 in the Senate and HB 1229 in the House.

WAHL is also actively working on two sets of animal cruelty bills in this legislative session, SB 5204/HB 1202 and SB 5203/HB 1201.
