As far back as 2007, shortly after I started FTLTD, I was advocating for an animal abuse registry. There’s a registry for sexual offenders so why not for animal abusers? Especially when you consider the fact that most serious violent criminals start off abusing animals and that it has been proven again and again that individuals who abuse animals, often also abuse others.
This is important, all abusers should be registered. Recidivism rates are unbelievable and animal abuse is often just the first horrible step in an abuser’s life! Read “Animal Abuse Linked to Killings” if you have any doubt or questions!

Does an animal abuser live in your neighborhood? Communities have good reason to be concerned about the whereabouts of animal abusers. In story after heartbreaking story, abusers repeat their violent crimes against helpless animals, and often go on to victimize people as well. Keep your animals and your families safe. Sign on to demand that your state require animal abusers to register in their communities.
