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.

Aug 29, 2014 Diana Beall Our laws makers forget that our pets are our family. We should have laws that protect them from abusers by increasing punishment for these monster. I would want to know if an animal abuser lived in my neighborhood. It should be law.

Aug 29, 2014 (Name not displayed) There should be accountability for all abusers. Having animal abusers on a registry can help enforcement and protection. If they harm animals, soon they will harm humans. Or they already are.
