Stop Animal Abusers from Owning Animals

Target: Richard Corcoran, Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives

Goal: Demand that the Florida House of Representatives pass a new bill that would prevent convicted animal abusers from adopting or buying animals.

Convicted animal abusers could soon be prevented from buying or adopting animals thanks to a bill up for vote in the Florida House of Representatives. The bill would create a public registry available for use by pet stores, breeders and shelters. Take a stand against animal abuse and demand that the House of Representatives pass this bill.

Not only would this bill publicly list the names of all convicted animal abusers in Florida, but it would also sanction any breeder, pet store, or shelter that provides an animal to a convicted abuser. The names would remain on the registry for two years. If the abuser is convicted of a second animal cruelty charge, then their name would remain on the list for an additional five years.

Sign below and demand that the Florida House of Representative pass this bill for the health and safety of all animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Corcoran,

HB 871, a bill preventing convicted animal abusers from owning animals, will soon be brought to vote. We demand that you pass this bill and give animals a fighting chance.

HB 871 would create an online registry of people convicted of felony animal cruelty, animal fighting, or sexual activities involving animals. Pet stores, shelters, and breeders who sell to a person on this registry would face a second-degree misdemeanor on their first offense. This would increase to a first-degree misdemeanor on the second offense and three days in jail and a $2,500 fine on a third.

Take a stand against animal abuse and pass HB 871.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This very important bill must be passed!

  2. Cynthia Mattera says:

    Finally, this bill must pass!!! Animals lives depend on it!

  3. First I am shocked that anyone who has ever abused an animal has not already been stopped from owning animals. Second, these sick people should NEVER be allowed to own animals and should permanently be put on lists everywhere. This is a good starting point, however, so I pray that the bill passes.

  4. Rene Johnson says:

    I agree with this but don’t agree with animals being sold in pet stores, unless they are from a rescue. All animals sold in pets stores comes from horrific mills.

  5. Catherine B. Adams says:

    I’m so sick of these evil minded creeps getting a slap on the wrist for animal abuse. This law should be mandatory for all states. The reason why these evil monsters continue to harming, torturing and destroy animals is because they get away with it with little consequence. When this happens to a human action is taken and everything done to bring the perpetrator to justice. Not that a human’s life isn’t important of course! I’d just like to see my tax dollars going to help the voiceless as well and the time and steps necessary to protect our furry creatures too! “All Lives Matter”!

    Anyone one harming a living being is a detriment to society! I could care less about their rights and tired of the criminals having more rights than they deserve while the righteous continue to pay for their atrocities with their heart, souls, and pocket books! This is so wrong! What has become of our great nation!
    Are we a people of morals and values in this country or are we turning into a bunch of heathens where money and power determine the name of the game?! What a shame …. what a shame …. In Jesus name I pray for protection over our voiceless and innocent that the evil wrong doers will be brought to justice and pay dearly for the lives they destroyed. An eye for an eye.

  6. I think anyone that abuses animals needs a long prison term for first offense..

  7. FOR ALL OF THESE GREED AND INHUMANE BREED SOMEONE FORGOT MAIN THINGS IN HUMANES EDUCATION.
    WHO IS IT?

    ALL OF THAT  INHUMANE  MUD AND RESPONSIBLE  NONPERSONS  ARE ONLY SENSELESS FOR ALL OTHER TERRESTRIALS – RECYCLE THEM  TO ALLIGATORS – THE SINGLE MEANING OF THESE SCUM!

  8. Karen Tipping says:

    I AM SICK TO DEATH OF READING ABOUT HUMAN SHIT LIKE THIS LOT GETTING AWAY WITH THE ABHORRENT CRIME OF ANIMAL ABUSE
    IT’S TIME THE PUNISHMENT FIT THE CRIME HERE, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE TERROR SUFFERING/AGONY AND THE SNUFFING OUT OF INNOCENT LIVES

    I WISH I HAD THE POWER I’D MAKE THE ARISE HOLES SUFFER.

  9. ÉSTE ES EL PEOR PROBLEMA SOCIAL QUE TENEMOS EN EL MUNDO Y SÓLO MEDIANTE LAS LEYES SE PUEDE COMBATIR. LA IGUALDAD ENTRE LOS ANIMALES Y LOS SERES HUMANOS ES EL CAMBIO QUE REQUERIMOS, PORQUE SÓLO CON LA IGUALDAD PODREMOS PROMOVER LEYES QUE SALVAGUARDEN LA JUSTICIA Y ACABEN CON EL CRIMEN. ESTO PROMUEVE LA LIBERTAD Y LA PAZ!!!! ALTO AL CRIMEN!!!!!!!
