Advocacy has always been an important part of the Marin Humane Society’s mission. Under the direction of the MHS Advocacy Committee, we advocate for animal welfare legislation and work to engage our community to help us protect animals in California and beyond.

You can help us by taking action on any of the issues below. Our Advocacy Center also includes a list of bills we are currently monitoring, an elected officials scorecard and searchmedia guide and more.

Protect the Mountain Lions
Take Action On This Issue

SB 132 would require that the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) use nonlethal procedures when removing or taking any mountain lion perceived to be an imminent threat to public safety. This bill defines nonlethal procedures for this removal and allows the department to partner with other agencies and qualified individuals for implementation. Requires a 4/5 vote by both houses of the legislature due to provisions of the original mountain lion protection act.
