Stop Animal Cruelty

Messages Sent So Far
Animal Abuse must stop! Animal neglect cannot be allowed. Across the United States, thousands of animals are severely mistreated. Often this violence against animals goes unpunished. Animals have rights just like humans. They don't deserve to be tortured and abused. The people who commit these crimes are not getting enough time behind bars. Animal abuse crimes are often overlooked, despite the fact that statistics shoe that there is a strong correlation between violence against animals and violence against humans. These violent people must be severely punished for their crimes. An animal deserves the protection of the state. Are they not as important as a person? Are people somehow more valuable? No, we're not. The law must be stricter against animal abusers. Please take action to increase the penalties for animal abusers. You will be helping get criminals off the streets...perhaps before they take violent action against people as well!

There is no excuse when it comes to mistreating animals. I have two dogs of my own and I honestly believe they have more heart and more personality than most humans will ever have in their lifetime. It is not just dogs but it is all animals. Humans feel entitled to do whatever they want to animals because they cannot speak for themselves which makes humans the bad guy. How powerful are u really if u are taking advantage of these poor innocent creatures. I know there will always be bad in the world but that is why I am signing this petition to show that we can fight against bad in the world instead of taking a back seat to it.
