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.

Dec 10, 2016 Trish Soulsby Animal abusers usually graduate from heinous and cruel acts against them to adding other people among their list of victims. It is only smart to alert others to the threat abusers pose.

Dec 10, 2016 Beth Payne As an animal owner, lover and advocate, I know that you can tell much about a person by the way they treat an animal. In my profession, I have also found that those that abuse animals, many times also abuse children. It's a travesty.

Dec 10, 2016 Karen Frye Any human that is capable of that is capable of every kind of abuse. They should be registered and made to do community service once they're out of jail. And that's still too good for them.
