Implement Harsher Punishment Against Animal Abuse

WE MUST TAKE ACTION. Every year thousands of animals are subjected to abuse and neglect from their owners, but we can make a difference. By implementing harsher punishments against those convicted of animal abuse, we can become one step closer to stopping these unacceptable crimes. Research shows that animal abuse is the first indicator for domestic abuse, so by increasing the severity of animal abuse penalties we can also help stop domestic abuse. In an essay by Susan Gaertner, Ramsey Country Attorney, she says, "First, we can recognize the role animals play as pawns in domestic violence situations and allow restraining orders and orders of protection for animals." By supporting this petition, you can help stop animal abuse and domestic abuse. Please sign!

  • Andrea Giolli Let's take a stand against animal abuse!!!

  • Mrs Mander Sickening.

  • Adrian Shiva Never stop voicing your concerns. Always keep fighting for animal rights everywhere. It may not look like much sometimes but the important think is to never stop. It is the only way to get more and more people to become aware. Only by constantly exposing these issues will you more effectively raise awareness and empathy for our poor animals.
