On April 22, 2014, we mailed off 99,794 signatures to the US Secretary of Agriculture. Continue to show your support for this worthy cause by signing below while we wait for a response back from Secretary Vilsack!
Goal: 200,000 Progress: 141,857
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.

May 22, 2015 Wanda Foell Please stop animal cruelty. Inhumane treatment of animals indicate the person that you are. If you can abuse an animal you are more than likely the person that will hurt a person.
May 22, 2015 (Name not displayed) I strongly oppose the mistreatment of ALL the animal God created, like child abuse it needs to be handled on a Federal level. That's another reason I DO NOT GO TO THE CIRCUS. Wild animals needs to be free and not caged.

May 22, 2015 Nella Taylor So so many little vulnerable animals are abused each and every day; I want to know who does this terrible thing to these helpless angels, and I feel as if they need to be protected ~ and one way that can be done is to have a National Registry of Abusers.
