Success: Animal Cruelty Offenders Face Federal Fines and Imprisonment

Target: Sheriff Daron Hall, President of the National Sheriffs’ Association

Goal: Thank those who stood up for animal rights and helped to make federal ban on animal cruelty official.

From this day forward, any intentional physical harm towards “living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians” is forbidden, as are photographs or digital recordings depicting said harm. President Trump has signed the official federal ban on animal cruelty across the United States, enacting harsher penalties and consequences for those who harm animals.

This ban has been working its way through the Senate and Congress for quite some time now, with plans to make it official being announced just earlier in November. For years, animal welfare groups and legal organizations such as the National Sheriffs’ Association have been fighting to outlaw the horrific treatment many innocent creatures are subjected to. Petitions such as this one have circulated demanding such acts be criminalized.

With presidential approval of the ban, animals across the country will finally be safe and treated with the reverence and decency they deserve. Sign this petition to thank the National Sheriffs’ Association for helping to make this possible.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Sheriff Hall,

Your endorsement of a ban on animal cruelty across the United States has helped make that ban possible, as President Trump has signed the official federal document. For years, too many animals have suffered horribly at the hands of cruel owners, strangers, or people who exploited their suffering for views and clicks on social media. Now, such acts are automatically criminal.

It is because of your organization and many others that this ban was able to push through the Senate and Congress, to work its way up to becoming official. Your recognition of animal cruelty as a crime and its link between criminal behavior towards humans was a major factor in this ban becoming a reality. Thanks to you, animals across the United States will be safer.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This bill has been working its way through Congress since 2015 BUT, although this is an important step in the right direction, it certainly does NOT cover ALL types of animal abuse and neglect! See link below and research other sites regarding the H.R.2293 Act.

    that’s a great step but certainly doesn’t guarantee animal safety and with speciesism rampant excludes way too many animals that are just as deserving of protection. don’t let your guard down keep fighting for other species AND ALWAYS REPORT ANIMAL ABUSE !

  3. AWESOME….and THANK YOU very much! <3 <3

  4. This is good news! But I still think animal abusers should just be shot!

      At least put in jail so the rest of the prisoners do the same to them what they did to the poor animals
