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.

Apr 29, 2017 Cheryl Whitman Animals are just as innocent and defenseless as children. They obviously should be protected, as well. I would want to know if there was someone near by that would possibly harm my little furry family member.

Apr 29, 2017 (Name not displayed) I feel very strongly about this, as many people do. Abuse and neglect to animals needs to be recognized in every state, and the necessary punishment for these senseless acts of torture and abuse on innocent animals.

Apr 29, 2017 Samantha Bevacqua It's so appalling how any human being can be so cruel. When the offenders are caught they should be treated the same - tortured so they know how it feels. These poor animals have done nothing wrong. I pray justice is served for these nasty monsters!

Apr 29, 2017 Donna Bates Animals and children are innocent and should be treated equally in form of punishment for their abusers. I can't imagine the thoughts that go through their minds as they are tortured and abused by their loved ones. Defend the innocent.
