Increase animal abuse punishment

This petition had 4,894 supporters

We want to start this petition because animal abuse is not okay. The punishment should be more than it is for animal abusers. A small fine is not going to teach them that it is wrong and they'll go back to it. Even though animal abuse is illegal people seem not to care about these great animals. With this issue too many animals have suffered and died for human pleasure. The impact on animal abuse and humans is big because killing animals for the heck of it could lead to killing people. Lets say you had a family and your loved one started to abuse your animal in front of your children then that leads them on wanting to do the same and could lead to some life threatening situations. So the punishment for animal abusers should have a mandatory fee and mandatory jail time. The mandatory fee should be changed to a minimum of $10,000 and jail time to a minimum of 5 years. 

 There have been 900 to 2,000 new cases every year of animal hoarding in the US. There are approximately 7.6 million companion animals entered into animal shelters nationwide every year. About 115 million animals are used in experiments every year around the world.

     We take this personally because it kills me that we can't help these poor animals when these things are being done to them. They don't deserve any of it. Its so sad, why in the world would you want to hurt an animal and put them in harms way. This issue needs to get out more, there is not enough being done about it because people are sick in the head and are still doing these things to these dogs, horses, and all kinds of other animals. So we are taking a stand and we are going to try to do something about it. The punishment should be more. Believe it or not animals mean the world to some people and we are some of those and it breaks our hearts to see any animal hurt like these people have hurt them. PLEASE STAND WITH US! Just looking up pictures should help you make up your mind about why you should help them out. Why would anyone want to do anything to an animal besides love them. Horses and dogs are abused more but not one animal should be treated like that. They are here to be loved and to be there for you but, people are sick and have killed and hurt these animals for fun. On my Facebook page, I saw this post where a guy hung his dog and took a selfie with it. NOT OKAY!  This needs to stop now!

      READ THIS! It's not okay.  '' In 2008, a pair of Australian men kidnapped a fox terrier puppy named “Peanut” in the middle of the night. They took him to a park behind some rodeo grounds, and recorded themselves slashing him with a knife and garden shears. They amputating two of his legs and severing his nose before finally decapitating him. They repeatedly laughed throughout the video. One of the two men, Jonathon Blake, had previously been convicted of sex crimes. He allegedly had a falling out with Peanut’s female owner and tortured the dog as an act of revenge. It was described as “The worst case of animal cruelty in Australian history.”
