Support strengthening animal cruelty statutes statewide

Supporters

Animals in Alabama need our support! In Alabama, animal cruelty is classified as a Class B misdemeanor. We need Reps. Faust and McMillan to bring HB 698 back before the House so that we can increase penalties and establish the felony charge of aggravated animal cruelty - a designation that Alabama's statutes currently lack.

HB 698 would make "acts that are done knowingly or with criminal negligence to the prohibition" a Class A misdemeanor, and would designate the crime of felony Aggravated Animal Cruelty, defined as an "act of cruelty or neglect" that "was heinous, atrocious, cruel, or involved infliction of torture to the animal."

Please join us in pushing for Baldwin County Representatives Faust and McMillan to reintroduce this much needed bill during the next legislative session.
