Punish Cruel and Neglectful Pet Owners

Thailand dog

Target: Monthian Boonthan, National Legislative Assembly Member

Goal: Impose punishments on pet owners who fail to adequately take care of animals

In Thailand, many pets are subjected to abuse and neglect by the very people who are meant to love and take care of them. Fortunately, a new piece of legislature aims to punish people who neglect, torture, or fail to properly take care of their animals. Cruelty, as defined by this bill, is any action or absence of action which causes an animal agony, disability, or death. This bill will also require owners to provide care for their pets. Failure to comply will result in a jail term of up to one year and/or a fine of no more than $600.

Pets’ owners are their entire lives. They rely on them for care, food, and love. Animals should not have to be subjected to abuse or neglect by the people who should be taking care of them. This bill will give pet owners in Thailand the push they need to become more responsible pet owners. They will have to give their animals the proper care they deserve.

If this bill passes, a high-level committee to prevent animal cruelty and promote animal welfare will be established and the lives of pets in Thailand will benefit greatly. Sign this petition and support this animal welfare bill.


Dear Mr. Boonthan,

It has come to my attention that you and many others in the National Legislative Assembly are focusing on passing an animal welfare bill that would punish pet owners who abuse or fail to provide adequate care for their pets. Many pets are suffering abuse and neglect in Thailand at the hands of the people who are meant to take care of them and I believe that this bill will change that for the better.

If this bill passes, a committee to prevent animal cruelty and promote animal welfare will be established. I believe that this, in congruence with the punishments against pet owners who neglect, abuse, or fail to care for their animals, will give pet owners in Thailand the push they need to become more responsible pet owners.

I would like you to know that you have my full support in regards to this bill. It will greatly improve the lives of pets in Thailand.

    Abuse is the ultimate betrayal towards any living soul and absolutely heartbreaking all the way around. You simply can not do such a horrific thing without it killing the best in you. Period. But in case there are any out there who couldn’t care less about torturing animals – which says a lot about you, as well – then think on this: If you find people happily willing to hurt an animal in any way, they are actually finding a venue to act out their deepest, most inner evil fantasies of twisted sickness. There’s nothing more revolting than that. Aside from this, it has been proven over and over again that people who have horrid intents with animals, get bored with them soon enough, ultimately leading them to bigger prey, moving up to people, in order to re-ignite and enhance the excitement that the torturing of animals used to provide. It’s simply never enough. And do not forget, these horrendous monsters also end up raising their children in “the game”, breeding evil, little sickos to continue on “the trade”… no doubt causing abuse in every level of their lives, as well. It’s just a revolting cycle that will never end until someone gets into it and breaks the heart-wrenching pattern. So, even if an animal is not of your utmost concern, then note that it will not stop there. It is just a start. And it is just a matter of time.

    • I agree with you 100%. You are so right. I cannot believe that somebody would ever hurt an animal to start with, but I know they do. But what people must understand is that this is much deeper than just “the animal” and “the abuser.” The abuser NEVER stops with just one animal and it is NEVER an accident. He, or she, is abusive to others in various ways; including but not limited to, physical and psychological abuse. The abuser, when caught, sometimes seems regretful but that, too, is part of the manipulation. They do not want to go to jail or pay a fine, but when they have to do so, they most always pass the blame to somebody else or even the defenseless animal they have abused, or killed. The abuser will not accept the responsibility, or the blame, for what they have done.

      Please take animal abuse seriously and help fight against it. You do not want it to enter into your life…EVER!

    Yes, this is long overdue and should be enacted all over
    the world.
