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.

Oct 24, 2016 Sandy Haberman Animal abusers need to be held accountable for the pain and misery they cause. A National Registry would at least keep people aware of who to watch.

Oct 23, 2016 Dorothy D Wilson necessary to fight all kinds of crime, it only makes sense and is proven that animal abusers grow up to become human abusers.
Oct 22, 2016 Diana Sahlen It's about time these CREEPS are accountable they should have their pictures out for all to see as well. So we can ALL keep watch!
Oct 22, 2016 Maria Towers As researchers are slowly finding out, animals have very similar feelings to human beings without being able to reason why a human is causing them so much pain. PLEASE create a public registry for animal abusers.

Oct 21, 2016 Katie Galvin We need to hold these type of abusers accountable - a life is a life and there must be consequences for people who have such little disregard for other living things to cause pain/death. It's imperative that a national registry like this be enacted ASAP

Oct 21, 2016 april gordon this is important, bec ive watched it now where i live for over 6 years...other signs should be is when owners CANNOT keep a dog for more than 6 month, letting them run the neighborhood, letting a child be from really mean to abusing the puppy/dog. ty
Oct 20, 2016 Kelly Taylor Absolutely... this is paramount in protecting our beloved pets and/or stray animals from abusive and cruel treatment at the hands of a sick, demented individual who might do the same to a child or other defenseless person.
Oct 20, 2016 Ronda Tolson Nobody that has abused an animal previously should be handed over another animal for them to torture. It's ridiculous that a national registry like this isn't already mandated.
