PETITION CONGRESS FOR A NATIONAL ANIMAL ABUSE REGISTRY, AND FOR “POPCORN’S LAW” WHICH WOULD MAKE IT A CRIMINAL ACT IF A VETERINARIAN DID NOT TAKE AWAY AN ABUSED ANIMAL FROM THEIR ABUSER.

It’s about time that Congress sets up a national animal abuse registry in all 50 states, and for “Popcorn’s Law” which would make it illegal for veterinarians not to remove an abused animal from their abuser.

I still don’t want to think about how much Popcorn suffered before he was finally brought into the vet. This veterinarian knew that he had problems with his skin. In the past he was given antibiotics and it cleared everything right up. However on this particular day Popcorn was not with us. He was supposed to be taken care of by a family member.

For more than a week Popcorn suffered from itchy skin which he did anything to try to make it feel better. Popcorn ended up biting himself just to be able to get some relief. It was so bad that he had created an opened wound to the point where he was bleeding.

Knowing that we’d be coming home in two days finally his abuser took him to see the veterinarian, and he talked about removing Popcorn’s tail because the infection was that horrible.

Instead of the veterinarian treating him with antibiotics or cream, or both, or the possibility of moving forward with the surgery of removing his tail Popcorn was euthanized.

His abuser told the veterinarian to euthanize Popcorn, so he put him to sleep. Popcorn was euthanized for no reason. He wasn’t an old dog. He had just turned 11. Popcorn was always a happy, easy going, loving family member, and we would never see him again.

The laws must change in order to protect the innocent animals who can’t speak for themselves.

My mom and I are still grieving the loss of Popcorn. It was completely unnecessary to euthanize him when all he needed was to be treated for his skin problems.

Popcorn’s abuser hasn’t been charged yet with animal abuse. The veterinarian is still practicing, because our state allows veterinarians to euthanize animals when they are told to.

Sign and share this petition to create “Popcorn’s Law,” so that it makes it illegal for veterinarians not to remove an abused animal from their abuse.

We must also petition Congress to set up a national abuse registry for all states, so that no more abuser can adopt, buy, or even take in a stray animal.

If a veterinarian discovers that this person is on the animal abuse registry, and they fail to remove the animal from the abuser then they will also be charged with the crime of abuse.

Popcorn would still be alive today if this veterinarian had done his job. All he had to do was to suggest treatment for Popcorn. Instead the veterinarian listened to Popcorn’s abuser and he took him away from us forever.

Not a day goes by that we don’t think about how much Popcorn suffered. We will never get to see, hold, kiss, or hug Popcorn again.

What happened to Popcorn doesn’t have to happen to any other animals with “Popcorn’s Law,” and with the National Animal Abuse Registry we can ensure that it will never happen again.

If you love and respect animals as much as we do then please sign, and share our petition with as many people as you can. Thank you.

Popcorn’s Family
