Amanda Brielle started this petition to Congress and

"On February 24th, 2021 a man left two dogs locked in a master bedroom for several weeks with no food or water, and left them to die. The dogs ate chips of wood from furniture, plastic bottles, plastic bags and band-aids in an attempt to stay alive." 

"On March 6th, 2021, a 4 month year old chocolate lab was severely beaten, thrown at a wall and thrown off a front porch, punched, and kicked."

"Every 60 seconds, one animal suffers abuse." "Every year, more then 10 million animals die of abuse in the US."

Multiple cases happening daily of animal abuse and is happening all around the world. This needs to stop. People should be required to surpass a background check in order to adopt or rescue an animal. Not just cats or dogs, any living creature that is in a shelter, or an adoption agency. The process it takes to adopt a child is 6 to 18 months...it should take just as long to be an owner of an animal. No animal deserves to be beaten, or starved to death, they deserve love. The point of having a pet, is to treat them like family. We need to be their voice and speak up for these helpless animals, because they don't deserve to be thrown in kill shelters, or treated badly.
