Issues

There are a number of issues that concern FOHO WV.    Our primary target is to obtain funding for our Spay Neuter Assistance Program which is established, has rules and regulation and is ready to go with its first $500 from FOHO WV.   That campaign is our focus so it has its own menu heading.  But there are many other issue that are important to FOHO WV.  We will list them as our supporters pass them on to us.  Ending Greyhound racing in WV.   Enacting the Commercial Breeder’s Law in all 55 counties by setting the commercial breeder’s fees.    Strengthening penalties for animal fighting.  Fighting breed discrimination throughout our state.   Curbing animal cruelty.  The list goes on.  Those are some of the topics you will find nestled under this heading.  We rely on a number of sources to educate our supporters on these issues.

Our primary source for remaining educated on legislative issues is wvvaw.org
