Stop Animal Cruelty Now!

Help prevent cruelty and torture to animals in the State of California. Help ensure these heinous crimes will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and perpetrators will be justly punished with a longer prison range.  Currently, California law allows only a MAXIMUM of 3 years, which is greatly out of proportion with the seriousness of the offense - help raise the limit to a maximum of 6 years. Statistics show that individuals that commit crimes against animals are FIVE TIMES more likely to commit violent crimes against humans. Animal cruelty is a serious crime, which should result in a serious punishment. Sign this petition, and urge local legislators to create a bill to help amend this law, and impose a stricter sentence. It only takes a moment, and it's such a worthy cause! Adam is a tiny kitten who was burned alive in June of 2007 in Santa Rosa, California. Ensure that crimes like this will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

We the undersigned ask you support Adam's Amendment to ensure that violent, cruel atrocities committed against innocent animals will be severely reprimanded. California law currently allows animal cruelty to be charged or plea bargained down to a misdemeanor. These are heinous, violent acts that should result in FELONY convictions.

       Violent acts toward animals have long been recognized as indicators of a dangerous psychopathy that does not confine itself to animals and this dangerous behavior will likely lead to violent crimes being committed against humans. For the sake of our furry friends, as well as humanity itself, please show your support for this worthy cause. Thank you for your support and empathy for this worthy cause.
