Last year, the New York state Senate approved a measure making it a class A misdemeanor for an individual convicted of animal cruelty to ever have employment working with animals. But the truth is, this should be a law across the nation.
Sign the petition to make sure no animal abuser can work at an animal shelter ever again!
This is not only protection for all animals; It is well known that there is a strong connection between animal cruelty, child abuse, domestic violence and many other crimes.
It is astonishing that it is currently perfectly legal for someone convicted of animal abuse to work in a shelter, humane society or a pound.
Please sign my petition calling on the U.S. Congress to pass a law making it illegal for a known animal abuser to ever work with animals.
