Join us in supporting one of the fiercest champions of animal protection:

Representative Carl Trujillo

Time and again, we remind ourselves that we can never take for granted the policymakers that always vote the humane way. We must repeatedly stand up for the champions that repeatedly stand up for animal protection.

Representative Carl Trujillo is one of those champions. And he needs our support!

Rep. Carl Trujillo has served in the New Mexico House of Representatives representing District 46 (Santa Fe) since 2013, and he also sits on the Board of Directors for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society. Over the years, he has become known as one of the animals’ strongest advocates at the state capitol, earning an impressive 98% Lifetime Score from Animal Protection Voters to date.

As soon as his second term, in 2015, Rep. Trujillo demonstrated leadership and sponsored House Bill 415 to create a mechanism for taxpayers to voluntarily donate their tax refunds to a statewide spay/neuter fund.

And this year, Rep. Trujillo sponsored and valiantly advocated for both House Bill 219 and House Bill 123, which aimed to strengthen support for New Mexico’s animal shelters and increase low-cost spay/neuter services—continuing his long-term commitment to helping reduce the number of homeless and euthanized companion animals. HB 219 was passed and signed into law, which means a better ability for vital statewide low-cost spay/neuter funds to be distributed, stronger infrastructure for enforcement of humane euthanasia standards and veterinary care in shelters, and greater efficiency and capacity for providing resources for companion animals and shelters. But House Bill 123, which would have brought in hundreds of thousands of new spay/neuter dollars into the state, stalled this year—and we need Rep. Carl Trujillo back in the Roundhouse to finish the good work he started.

As Santa Fe advocates and voters, let’s show that animal protection issues matter in elections by rolling up our sleeves and getting involved, and support Rep. Trujillo for everything he’s done for animals. Join us!
