Sign the Petition to

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)

Dear House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy:

In the time it took you to read the above greeting and these words, an animal was abused. This needs to stop. One way of accomplishing this is by banning animal abusers from owning pets.

Colorado recently enacted a law that bans convicted animal abusers from owning, possessing, or caring for a pet for upwards of five years. Sadly, animal abuse occurs in every state—and, as the Humane Society reports, all social and economic classes and in both rural and urban areas.

That’s why we’re asking you to add language to the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act that would ban animal abusers in all states from owning pets. The bill already has bipartisan support, and the endorsement of animal welfare groups like the Humane Society.

There could not be a more common-sense law than preventing animal abusers from owning pets. Please help us protect those who can’t protect themselves.
