New Laws Needed For Abused Animals

Messages Sent So Far
Most states will have felony charges for animal abuse as of the first of the year, it needs to be the most strict charge of a felony, with mandatory jail time!

Also these people who abuse animals, should be put on a regeristy list that would let everyone know that they have been convicted of Animal Abuse, also to include, a warning to all animal adoption, rescue, Humane Societys, Animal Control, not to let these abusers adopt any animal, at anytime.

This problem is becoming too common.
Abusers are walking away with a fine, and a slap on the wrist.

This is entirely sending the wrong message to the abuser!

Animals can not speak for themselves, I for one, am willing to step up to help protect them.

Please help the souls of these animals, that have been broken through abuse.

Animals can feel pain, and have feelings just as we do.

Animals express unconditional love,and are loyal.

How can we ignore this problem?

If an animal is abused, or killed, shouldn't there be new laws put in place that will protect them?

There needs to be strict Felony charges, with jail time.

Animals, especially household pets, zoo animals, farm animals, etc., all depend on their humans and trust them unconditionally. Their trust and love can only be compared to that of a young child. Animals and children depend on us for survival, food, shelter, affection, kindness, love, even happiness. Like children, animals (dogs especially) wish to please the important people in their lives. It is this inherint desire that makes them so susceptible to abuse. Child abuse is a violent crime with laws to protect the innocent. Well, animals are innocent and need laws to protect them from violent crimes. Please, designate animal abuse a violent criminal act a put laws in place with much more damaging/painful punishments to go with it.
