    I just have sone questions. Would like to start a petition in my area, to be able to a registry like this passed in my area.
    My first question, is who monitors these “abusers”, that they are getting registered?
    Also where would these “abusers” go to register?

    Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions. I want to help make a difference.
    Sincerely Kara

    I’ve been hoping for this for years. Many studies have shown that serial killers usually hone their evil skills on animals when they are children. The police should view the register when hunting for this scum. It would give important leads.

    I would hope the County or City Attorney’s office in each jurisdiction would keep tabs on this. I would love to present an ordinance like this to my Board of Supervisors. Does anyone have a copy of this ordinance handy?

    First off thank you! At the risk of sounding ungrateful…

    This seems like a pretty small price to pay in my opinion: “Anyone who fails to report to the registry or owns a pet while on the registry” …UP TO one year and $1k?

    And then to only remain on the registry for 5 years? Why give them a second chance to earn 10 years? It’s not like these sick, cruel and violent people are going to get a puppy take time to potty train them, teach them to sit, get them vet care and love them. The vet bills alone cost more than the penalty fee!

    can you please not post pictures of sad dogs like this.. I already get very sad ads from the ASPCA that follow me around the web.. thanks… I’m really happy for the registry though.

    I hope everyone on this thread gives generously to the ASPCA or other organization.

    Thanks

    The amount of TIME and FINE doesn’t fit the CRIME. Please reconsider a HARSHER ~ PUNISHMENT. Thanks

    In All Do Respect, I Don’t Feel The Amount of TIME or FINE.. FITS The CRIME.

    People that are animal abusers will go to abuse children or the elderly. Please also understand the thought of a person beaten a living creature to death shows the evil and the bad in that human.

    Please, keep them off the streets for everyone’s protection.

    God gave us animals to love and care for, not for this horror. A life is a life and a living being is a living being.

    Thank you for your time,

    Lucia Fabbo
