Goal: 200,000 Progress: 129,373
Sponsored by: The Animal Rescue Site

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.

Apr 27, 2015 patti Cash It's a heinous crime against defenseless animals and the beginning of the worse to come! There needs to be an Offender List for the PUBLIC to VIEW!!!
Apr 27, 2015 Sharon Hahn We need to know our pets are safe as well as our children. Make this registry happen!
Apr 27, 2015 Kelly Crawford If they will harm a defenseless animal, what else are they capable of?
Apr 27, 2015 Nancy Beaulieu This is very much needed. Rescue Groups could use as a reference, as could various shelters. These abusers are predators with an insatiable appetite for cruelty. They need to be registered and known.

Apr 27, 2015 Connie Austin The petition would greatly help honest sellers of all types animals to check the register before they sell to a person. To many of us, our pets are our family.
