Dog Abusers Unite!
(On Animal Abuser Registries)
Look at this beautiful girl, Coco!
But this was Coco when she was being starved and abused:
Thank God Coco was saved.
There's a special place in hell for animal abusers.
You know how convicted sex offenders have to register with law enforcement? What if animal abusers ALSO had to register?
Well, in Tennessee they do! In 2016, TN was the first state to adopt such a law.
And Oregon and Washington, among other states, have pending bills that, if passed, would require these sickos to register, just like sex offenders do.
Animal abuser registries can help shelters screen out convicted animal abusers trying to adopt new pets.
In some states, the proposed laws make the information on the registries available only to law enforcement and animal control and shelter facilities’ personnel, while other states' bills would also grant access to the general public.
In Oregon, convicted abusers would be required to register with law enforcement, and the information would be available to the public online.
In Washington, the registry would be available to law enforcement, veterinarians, animal breeders, adoption agencies and pet stores. Registered abusers would be barred from owning an animal and from working or volunteering with any agency or business dealing with animals.
