District Attorneys: Enact Education for Animal Cruelty Offenders & Save Animals
You can make a difference and help save countless animals from suffering and death.
First-time animal cruelty offenders must be re-educated, and learn how to care for and be more humane to animals.
We request you enact a mandate that first-time animal cruelty offenders enroll in an online course, such as the Promote Animal Welfare Education course, in order to become more aware of proper animal treatment and help prevent further cases of animal abuse.
Animal cruelty comes in many forms. Along with physical violence, abuse can also include:
- hoarding of animals
- not enough money to care for the animal
- failure to provide proper food and water
- poor protection from the weather
- unsanitary environment
Many times these conditions lead to the slow, painful death of the animal.
More than 19,000 cases of animal abuse have been reported in the U.S. since 1980, according to Pet-Abuse.com, a comprehensive online database of animal cruelty cases founded in 2001. In many instances, the abusers are repeat offenders.
Animal cruelty is serious, tragic, and often preventable. Please help us re-educate first-time animal cruelty offenders in your state now.
Thank you for your time.
