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.

Jan 21, 2017 dawn hapeman Please create a nationwide animal abusers list that can be accessed like the child abusers list. We need centralization on this and the ability to run names through it like on the child abuse registry.

Jan 20, 2017 Erika ODierna Animal rights is the idea that some or all non-human animals are entitled to the possession of their own lives and that their most basic interests~such as the need to avoid suffering—should be afforded the same consideration as similar interests of humans
Jan 20, 2017 Amy Rizzardi People who abuse animals are just going to end if abusing children. They're sick people and they need to be stopped!

Jan 20, 2017 Erika Altieri Abusers need to be on this registry list so that shelters/rescues/pet stores & reputable breeders can run their name through the database when they are trying to adopt/shop/purchase a pet. All our animals deserve to be protected & we are their only voices
