The FBI's classification and tracking of animal abusers through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) is a step in the right direction! Now we need to get the NIBRS implemented across the entire nation! Sign the NEW petition here! http://theanimalrescuesite.greatergood.com/clickToGive/ars/petition/animal-abuse-registry/

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 to enact a national animal abuser registry.

To the Secretary of the USDA,

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.

Jun 3, 2017 Dodi Gile Lets get this into gear. Let the registry begin. If a person is to stupid to realize that animals have pain as humans & abuse is wrong then first offence hefty fine and register. Second offence lets treat them like they did the animal they abused.

Jun 1, 2017 Reyna Greenfield Animal abusers are just as bad abusers as child abusers. They MUST be on a NATIONAL ANIMAL ABUSERS REGISTRY so that they may NEVER have animals again. Many animal abusers are also child abusers! Protect our dogs and cats and all animals!

May 29, 2017 Mark Jackman That's great that the FBI have taken an interest in animal abuse as an early indicator of the mindset that would eventually to the same things to people, but as far as I'm concerned animals are just as important as the potential human victims. Baby steps.
