Urge Minnesota to Implement & Enforce Animal Cruelty Database

  • by: Sue Lee
  • recipient: Minnesota State Legislators

With the ongoing effort to protect animals from cruelty, abuse and neglect, I am moving forward in working with the state of Minnesota, encouraging them to implement an animal cruelty registry.  To be effective, such a registry needs to be similar in stature to that of a sex or child abuse offender.

Read information on animal issues at  http://asci.uvm.edu/equine/law/cruelty/mn_cruel.htm, http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/abuse_neglect/?referrer=https://search.yahoo.com/. If animal abuse and cruelty is to stop, some serious steps need to be taken to protect these poor, defenseless beings without a voice.  The proposed database would be a crucial tool in doing just that.  It has been a proven fact that there is a distinct link between animal cruelty and violence against people.  Anyone who thinks it is acceptable to harm an animal that cannot defend itself will very likely harm people, often family members, neighbors and friends.

My effort in this petition is to encourage Minnesota State Legislators to implement and strictly enforce an animal cruelty registry.  Any person that is found guilty of any type of animal abuse, cruelty and neglect needs to be placed on this database, which is required to be updated on a regular basis.  Additionally, these abusers need to be banned from future pet ownership or ever working with or caring for them for a lifetime.  The database should then be shared with all breeders, shelters, pet shops and others in the pet industry as a mandatory resource. You can help me by taking action through this petition, adding your own thoughts and comments.



Minnesota State Legislators – I strongly urge you to implement and strictly enforce an animal cruelty registry database as a means of protecting poor defenseless animals. Any person that is found guilty of any type of animal abuse, cruelty and neglect needs to be placed on this database, which is required to be updated on a regular basis.  Additionally, these abusers need to be banned from future pet ownership or ever working with or caring for them for a lifetime.  The database should then be shared with all breeders, shelters, pet shops and others in the pet industry as a mandatory resource. Animal abusers should be held to no lower standards, and should be required to enter an animal abuse registry in order to protect the lives of animals. Be a voice for the voiceless!
