In story after heartbreaking story, animal abusers repeat their violent crimes against helpless animals, and often go on to victimize people as well.
Mandatory registration for convicted animal abusers would aid dramatically in keeping offenders away from potential new victims by alerting law enforcement and the public to their whereabouts, and by allowing animal shelters to thoroughly screen potential adopters for criminal offenders.
Send a letter to your state legislators to join the Animal Legal Defense Fund's campaign to demand that your state require animal abusers register in their communities. By helping to support public animal abuser registries, you can help protect not only cats, dogs, horses and other animals, but also our communities.
