Petitioning Illinois State law

Change animal cruelty laws from a misdemeanor to a felony


I read in the paper that a man tried to hang his dog on the south side of Chicago, yet no information was given on if this dog even survived or what happened to it. I researched what will happen to the man who attempted hanging his dog and was alarmed that we give nothing but a slap on the wrist for actions like this. Most of us treat our animals like they are part of our family, yet since they don't have a voice to cry for help we do not have equal laws when cruelty occurs. Please be an advocate for animals and help change the law from a misdemeanor to a felony for animal cruelty.

Change animal cruelty laws from a misdemeanor to a felony

I am sending this petition letter to raise awareness of the lack of consequences put in place for animal cruelty. Most of us treat our animals like they are part of our family, yet since they don't have a voice to cry for help we do not have equal laws when cruelty occurs. Please be an advocate for animals and help change the law from a misdemeanor to a felony for animal cruelty.
