Tell Congress to make a mandatory National Animal Abuser Registry

      savannah, GA

Although there may be some local, regional and state movement to put greater awareness in place regarding animal abusers, the many smaller databases are hard to find and omit important information about offenders that would surely alert the public as to who they are living near and what type of animal abuse crime they have been convicted of. We simply ask that if an offender is found to be guilty by a jury of peers, they be placed on ONE overall NATIONAL DATABASE that is easily reached via a website address and covers all states with recorded data in ONE SEARCHABLE DATABASE ... THIS PETITIONER will build the site at his own expense and will solicit volunteers to oversee and keep current the public data if need be. We wish to save the government the time and expense that would delay the process. We are reaching out to all animal lovers who are sick and tired of finding out after it is too late, that they are in the proximity of criminals that have been convicted of heinous acts of cruelty towards animals!
ONE DATABASE for animals abusers is what we seek to accomplish. We hope that a concentrated effort on the part of animal champions everywhere to raise awareness in this matter will push our representatives in the gov't to do something once and for all. PLEASE Sign this petition. A VIRAL appeal to our elected officials can not be denied.
Sincerely Tony Richards
Petition Creator and Founder President of Animals Anonymous Relief Fund 501 (c) (3) and Creator of AARF Registry of Known Animal Abusers (AKA)

      We are at 2257 and basically at a crawl. We came out of the gate 25 or so days ago and it was fast and furious. After the third week I could tell that I had reached the immediate responders on the same level as I was in my network. We are at the mercy of the true believers that are adamant about a One stop database for offenders. I have had some time to investigate what motivates people on a large scale here on Change.org. It seems if it is something that can pit one group against another it really draws attention. But is it is a plea for a compassion that was hitherto going un noticed it is not so easy to catch attention. I don't know why people are more apt to vote for a fired gay scoutmaster than for a database that would let us see who set animals on fire, or who molested animals sexually. I do not understand how we humans put our priorities. There is so much suffering out there by the trusting voiceless. They depend on us. FACT! - Animal Abuse leads to people abuse.... HELP US!

      Congratulations, Allan Mounsey from United Kingdom is the 2000th person to sign "Tell Congress to make a mandatory National Animal Abuser Registry." We are moving ahead slowly but surely in our quest to get 50K signatures> To remind everyone - I intend to take 50K signatures on this petition printed in stacks and putting it on his desk and telling him that we 50,000 demand that a bill be passed in congress to make ONE SEARCHABLE National Animal Abusers Registry so that we may find the face of evil that is possibly in our midst with a simple mouse click. It is being done for Child Molesters and other abusers and now it needs to be done on behalf of animals as well. The latest collected stories of abusers that I have gathered can be found at http://www.facebook.com/aarfabusers - please fell free to post more there so that we have them for posterity. As always we do this so that our family and our pets can be protected. We do not seek revenge, we seek prevention. Thanks guys please share.

      There are people walking around in the real world that aren't signing petitions. They are really good people. Most of them have never thought about the need for a animal abuser registry and though mildly interested I can see there eyes glaze over. I realize that whatever may be the downside to web surfing, one of the upsides is you get to research your interests fully. And I am here to tell you that for the most part ,even though there are kind souls out there - most do not find this to be urgent and pressing. They cannot see how this affects them. They do not watch videos of abuse and have no desire to see what makes them uncomfortable. We are the chosen ones. We seek to face the discomfort knowing how much we will hurt. We know this only has to be done right one time. We carry the torch into new territory. We Know all too well the depravity that the human soul is capable of in regards to animal abuse. Please hold steady and spread the message. Do It.Thank you for being you. Share!

      LET US BE CLEAR. What we are doing is, each and everyone of us, seeing the absolute need for this database of animal abusers . We can clearly see it, let us be clear on that point. This is not a campaign where a bunch of people are doing Tony a favor. If you sign this petition it is because you see "the house is on fire" and you need to get out. You don't need to know who started the fire, you need to get out. This issue we are dealing with is like that . This problem of abusing animals. When you look at it and you look at the community around you, you start to see a correlation .. you start to understand that evil itself starts somewhere where it takes something it is not supposed to and impishly waiting to see it hasn't been punished, it takes something of more value, ever increasing until it takes a life. Possibly your pet, possibly your child but always it starts with something "allowable" - stop the madness NOW - sign and share this petition.

      I have been working like mad to network this project. There wasn't a single all in one database of abusers - There were many smaller ones and a few state sponsored and a ton of animal lover pages with horrid crimes on them . but just like it was told to me, there was not "the one - that is what we are doing here. This effort on all of our parts will be in sync with our spiritual development. Just like everything else there is a handful of people that really make the difference. I hope to get the 50,000, get the meeting with my rep over with and have her/him/ them take the ball from there so I can go back to my music. I do not want any more than that to happen. I am hoping that although I was able to start the process rolling you all realize that this will only happen if you work the hell out of it. This is US seeking protection for animals and family - I will step aside once we have the goal. but we are far away from that my friends - and there is so much cruelty - there is work to do

      OUR love for our fellow earthlings ... animals they are called ... becomes more and more evident as we share and work to the goal. WE want ONE searchable NATIONAL ANIMAL ABUSERS REGISTRY ... a searchable database that will let us see with our own eyes who has been guilty of causing great pain and suffering to animals. We know that those who do this to innocent creatures will eventually do this to ALL beings. And we want to know who they are. WITH GREAT BLESSINGS COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY. And our animals and family are our GREATEST BLESSINGS. WE refuse to believe what we can't research for ourselves. WE already know that that doesn't work.

      And we hope that the goal of 50,000 keeps approaching us at a steady pace. This very day I have had a meeting with a couple of professional people, a Dr. A Lawyer an Army Corp. of Engineers Architectural Engineer .... and my friends of course here involved with this cause. The purpose of my meeting with these influential people was to inform them of my intentions To have a bill introduced to congress. I was overwhelmed by the encouragement I got. These are some heavy hitters. My question to them was simple. "I know you are all staunch animal lovers and go the extra mile to make animals comfortable in your world. When I hit this 50,000 signature goal, can I count on your support to reach the people who will get this issue before the proper channels?" ... a resounding YES was the answer from all ... they will back the effort 100% ... Please encourage the sharing and signing of this petition .... we have much work to do ... my undying gratitude to you all .... TR

      They have this list for sex offenders so why don't they have one for animal abusers!!!!

      Cruelty must end and the harshest penalties must exist to help stop abuse. There should be a registry in which abusers sign after conviction. Killing animals is a sign of serious sickness & humans are possibly at risk for the same kind of abuse or death.

      because animals have feelings and a heart that beats just like a human. it sickens me to see an animal abused.

      amimsls are just as much a part of this earth as humans and animals don't have a voice, they are innocent!!!
