Stricter punishments on animal abusers

This petition had 2,520 supporters

There are nearly 4,300 cases of animal abuse in the United States every year...and these are just the documented cases. There's no telling how many more hundreds of animals are being tortured, starved and neglected that we don't even know about. The maximum sentence for someone who commits animal cruelty is a up to 18 months in jail. That serves no justice for these innocent animals! Everyday people are abusing their pets in unspeakable ways and because of these pathetic punishments, these criminals have a bigger chance of committing the crime again and could potentially allow them to commit more heinous crimes such as child abuse and even murder. With your help, we can influence our justice system to bestow harsher punishments and sentences on animal abusers!!
