No More ‘Slaps on the Wrist’ for Animal Abusers

Target: Chuck Schumer, U.S. Senate Majority Leader

Goal: Enhance federal animal welfare standards concerning chronic neglect.

Three dogs in reportedly dire condition are rescued from an Arkansas residence. Upon investigation, a fourth deceased dog is apparently discovered in a trashcan. In Colorado, nine wild mustangs are liberated from what authorities call an “emergency situation.” Both of these troubling cases demonstrate how alleged neglect can devastate a broad swath of animals.

The incidents also call attention to the lack of accountability for this type of animal cruelty. No indication has been given that jail time was assigned in either case. Across the country, similar narratives play out with a startling frequency. At-risk animals are retrieved from a property, sometimes only to be returned to that very same property. The accused offenders are often given legal slaps on the wrist. In many cases, they are not even prohibited from contact with more animals, allowing the vicious cycle to repeat itself time and again.

The Animal Welfare Act sets federal standards for care of some animals. Certain people or groups, however—like private shelters, pounds, and private collectors of animals—are excluded from these minimal guidelines. Sign the petition below to demand federal animal welfare neglect laws cover all vulnerable animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Schumer,

Neglect is an insidious form of abuse, and it takes the most crushing toll on the most vulnerable populations. Unfortunately, too many pets and other animals fall into this category. Cases of neglect are such a sizeable percentage of animal cruelty cases because they go unchecked and unpunished.

The loopholes in the nation’s lynchpin animal welfare law do not help. The Animal Welfare Act is supposed to set an example, but instead it carves out exceptions for a whole host of individuals and entities responsible for the care of animals. As a result, these living beings do not receive adequate protection.

Animal cruelty is a topic that crosses party lines and unites people who otherwise have nothing in common behind an important cause. Please give this country a win by safeguarding its most vulnerable. Strengthen the Animal Welfare Act.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Whatever these losers do to animals needs to be done to them.!!!

  2. DEATH PENALTY for ALL animal-torturers and animal-abusers.
    NO animal shall be neglected, starved, killed, beaten, kicked, punched, stabbed, tortured, set on fire or abused in any other way by dehumanized and desensitized psychopathic human scum.
    ALL animal-abusing sadists must be EUTHANIZED to set an example. DEATH PENALTY is the only adequate punishment for this hellish human garbage!
    Animals deserve JUSTICE – just like YOU and ME!!!!!

  3. May all those who abuse or torture animals suffer a slow horrible painful torturous death before they rot in hell!

  4. Joseph Kenosky says:

    This should never be tolerated!

  5. The death penalty for all animal abusers!!

  6. As I keep saying, people power will, sooner than later I’m sure, begin to put a stop to all of these sadistic, torturing, bastards who enjoy brutalising animals and creatures.
    In the middle ages, supposed witches were dragged from their homes and burnt at the stake! Innocent or not as the mobs would be in a frenzy and nothing would stop them!
    Well, if people get enough ‘fire in their bellies’ these bastard animal abusers and torturers could be looking at the same treatment.
    Not necessarily burnt at any stake, but terminated any ‘which way’. It would not matter as long as they knew what was happening before the bastards were despatched. And, would no doubt be a lesson to any other bastards doing the same!
    I may have gone off on a tangent here but I am certain that it will come to the
    stage where normal people will say enough is enough! We do not want these
    fucking pieces of shit in our world.
    The useless law will not do anything as they are ‘only animals’ and do not matter.
    These bloody so-called Judges are a waste of space and deserve the same treatment as the abusers!
    Sorry to go on but this is how I see it right now.
    I say again, power to any ‘animal vigilante groups’ anywhere who can begin to deal with these worthless shitbags and hopefully would be a warning to any other psycho animal torturing bastards as to what will happen to them when caught!!

    • Jon White – I definately agree with your comment. And every thing you mentioned is so true.

    • I most definitely agree. We’ve got to do something since the law won’t.

  7. Joanne Bradley says:

    All animal abusers must be prosecuted and given the harshest punishment to deter these evil lowlife scum who prey on defenceless animals. Make the punishment fit the crime.

  8. Shirley Lemieux says:

    Until now, I was not aware of a loophole in the animal welfare act that allow many individuals to be exempt it seems. This is unacceptable. It is our responsibility as humans to be good stewards for animals of the Earth. The scripture says, The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel (Proverbs 12:10). As godly stewards and righteous believers we are called to care and give kindness towards animals as well as people. In order to achieve this, Laws need stronger protections for animals. Please strengthen the animal welfare act.

  9. I believe all the vile and evil lowlife human monster psychopathic lowlife filth on our Planet who deliberately and heinously torture precious and innocent animals (sentient beings) to death by the vilest of deliberate and heinous torture, suffering and an excruciating agonising death must be brought to Justice and sentenced to death and suffer in excruciating agony as these psychopathic lowlife human monsters committed against the precious and innocent helpless
    and defenceless victims. (sentient beings).

    This must be introduced into the Animal Protectiobn Laws immediately. This is the only way that these vile and evil lowlife psychopathic filth human monsters on our Planet can be stopped. ERADICATION FROM OUR PLANET IMMEDIATELY.

    Good riddance to the psychopathic lowlife human filth on our Planet.

  10. If animal cruelty were a felony with prison time, so much animal cruelty would NOT happen. Schumer won’t do anything.

  11. We must take this on as our own job. The government doesn’t care. This is on the bottom of their list. Street justice is all these thugs understand. It’s up to us to carry it out. Everyone says what they think should happen but it won’t until we do it ourselves.

    • Brilliant summing up. 100% true. These arrogant fuckers must be stopped and as the bloody useless law will always turn a blind eye it is up to us to deal with these bastard animal torturers and abusers!
      One thing is for sure, the tossers would not do it again. And I am sure all would have a good nights sleep knowing there was one les animal torturer on the planet.
      All power to any animal vigilante groups anywhere. And it is going to happen. Mark my words!!

  12. Melinda+Maddox says:

    There is not enough horrible things to say about animal abusers. The main thing is they all need to go to prison letting all other inmates know what they are in prison for !!

  13. Instigation of the death penalty is essential for all animal abusers globally.

  14. Michelle Stewart says:

    Every person must get done to them what they did to animals. There’s probably people that would gladly hurt/kill animal abusers, torturers, killers

  15. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU…THIS IS CLEARLY A WICKED, EVIL THING TO DO. SORT IT OUT. WHY DOES IT TAKE A PETITION FOR YOU TO WAKE-UP?!
    TURNING AWAY FROM IT MEANS YOU ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS DISGUSTING ACTION BEING ALLOWED TO HAPPEN.
    WHAT ARE YOU DOING SITTING THERE TAKING THE MONEY AND DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING…HOW DARE YOU.
    WAKE-UP AND STOP SUCH WICKED, EVIL ACTION HAPPENING …GET ON WITH IT!!

  16. Manitou CalmStorm says:

    They should have the same thing done to them that they do to those poor animals. NO EXCEPTIONS!! If a kid abused an animal, that kid gets the same treatment! Again. NO EXCEPTIONS!
