Goal: 200,000 Progress: 128,569

Convicted child abusers are automatically entered into a national public registry to inform people of their whereabouts and to ensure children's safety. This helps to keep parents informed about potential danger in their neighborhoods.

Animal abusers should be held to no lower standards, and should be required to enter an animal abuse registry in order to protect the lives of animals living in close vicinity. Sign the petition telling the head of the USDA, Thomas Vilsack, to enact a national animal abuser registry.

Dear Thomas Vilsack,

I am writing to request that you, as head of the USDA, push for a national animal abuse registry. Much like the child abuser registry, this would require animal abusers to enroll in an animal abuse index that would be publicly available.

A registry of this nature is necessary given the close correlation between animal abuse and child abuse. Many repeat animal abusers often demonstrate violence toward humans as well; more often than not, the two aren't mutually exclusive. This is why we need your help to ensure our communities are kept safe and informed.

Please take the necessary steps to ensure a registry to identify animal abusers is put into effect. Animals and humans alike deserve your best efforts to keep them safe.

Thank you for your time.

Mar 30, 2015 Bonnie Heimbigner I definitely feel there should be a registry for animal abusers. Also, I feel animal abusers should be treated like the criminals that they are and go to prison. Let other inmates treat them like they treated the poor defenseless animals.

Mar 30, 2015 Joseph Dembski As a pet owner and lover of all animals I strongly urge you to do everything in your power to create a national animal abuse registry. Anyone convicted of torturing or otherwise mistreating any animal should not be permitted to own or care for any animal.

Mar 30, 2015 Linda Wray It is proven that young children that abuse animals not only turn into more violent abusers but people who go on to abuse others as well. Please create this registry so all with a history of abuse will be caught and punished to the full extent of the law.
