Implement & Enforce Animal Cruelty Registry in North Carolina

Animal cruelty and abuse in North Carolina continues to rise and we need to do more to stop it!

In recent years, lawmakers have attempted to strengthen animal protect by escalating punishment from a misdemeanor to a felony.  However, a statewide animal cruelty registry could protect even more innocent animals from abuse and neglect.

Like public registries for child abusers and sex offenders, those who abuse and neglect animals  should face serious, lifetime implications.  

Any person convicted of animal abuse, cruelty or abandonment of any sort needs to be listed on this registry. To be accurate, the abuser’s information needs to be updated on a regular basis.  Furthermore, any person listed on this database should remain there for a lifetime and be banned from any future animal ownership or working with or caring for animals.

Encourage North Carolina to implement and strictly enforce an animal cruelty registry that will help to protect these voiceless, defenseless animals statewide --  sign and share this petition.

North Carolina State Legislators – With the numbers of ongoing animal cruelty issues on the rise, I strongly urge you to take further crucial steps in protecting animals statewide by implementing and strictly enforcing an animal cruelty registry.  Such an animal cruelty registry needs to be similar in stature to that of other databases for child abusers and sex offenders with serious, lifetime implications.  Any person convicted of animal abuse, cruelty or abandonment of any sort needs to be listed on this registry.  To be accurate, the abuser’s information needs to be updated on a regular basis.  Furthermore, any person listed on this database should remain there for a lifetime, being banned from any future animal ownership, working with or caring for them as a means of protecting future defenseless lives. Please create and enforce such a registry immediately as you speak out in the defense of those that do not have a voice and cannot protect themselves.
