senate Bill S. 2633

Should Animals Freed From Fighting Rings be Available for Adoption Sooner?

Argument in favor

The cost of caring for animals seized in animal fighting cases is currently a barrier to investigating and prosecuting these crimes. Additionally, the length of time that animals need to be held in shelters is detrimental to their physical and mental health.

We need to hold those accountable for such abuse to animals. Stabilizing the animal and finding it a good home should come short after.

I wholeheartedly support this and any other bill that throws the cost of rehabilitation for the animals and rehoming them back on the perpetrators involved in their abuse. Likewise for the expenses involved in their prosecution. These animals should be given every opportunity to be put back into loving homes as soon as is reasonable.

Argument opposed

There’s already a federal fine of up to $250,000 for interstate animal fighting. The proceeds these fines can be used to defray the costs of caring for animals seized in animal fighting cases.

What the Hell is wrong with you people! Now you want to regulate chicken fighting? Damn it read the Constitution, do YOUR job! This is what you’re wasting time on? When’s the last time you passed a budget? Have still 100s to approve of president’s nominees. You wonder why people have more respect for realtors and used car salesmen!

I voted Nay to being available for adoption sooner just because in my opinion these animals have been trained for fighting and need to be rehabilitated professionally before integrating them into a home where they could potentially encounter other animals and engage in an aggressive manner due to how they were conditioned to fight. But I definitely support measures penalizing those who engage in such inhumane practices and do believe eventually these animals should be available for adoption into caring homes, but only after they are rehabilitated/domesticated properly.

They need proper reeducation before they get adopted.

    This is seems like a great idea. I don’t see any reason to not be in favor of this.

    No, some of them cannot be broken from fighting with possibility of turning against new owners.

    Animals should have the right to good homes. I am all on board for this. I only see some issues in speeding up the adoption process, but I think it’s worth it. Animals should be able to go to good homes.

    Depending on temperament, some of them should probably be put down as humanly as possible.

    It’s about the poor, innocent, abused animals NOT the damn money!!! These animals need to get placed in homes as soon as possible so they can be loved and cared for.

    There’s no reason for animals to linger in temporary boarding, increasing costs to taxpayers and injuring the potential adoptability of the animal due to lack of socialization, any longer than absolutely necessary. Once the animal is seized, rehabilitation should begin immediately, and placement made as soon as possible.

    As long as medical treatments are already progressing and personality testing has been completed, there’s no reason to delay foster or permanent placement. And ABSOLUTELY hold those responsible FISCALLY, and every other way possible. Whether it’s chickens or dogs or anything else, these jerks need to learn their lesson that this is wrong, and money is possibly the only punishment they’ll respond to.

    Help these animals find a better home and the offenders of such crime should be the ones paying for the rehabilitation.

    Animal fighting should be absolutely banned from this entire Earth! Teach compassion and love for all of our animals! How would YOU like being forced like the Roman Gladiators to fight to your personal death? This is soooo sickening! We must end it and retrain the animal kids in a special healing and recovering from abuse program and then rehome them with the RIGHT Loving people asap! They will heal faster but they must go through the retraining programs first.

    Yes, and if you need the animals to be present during the Court Cases, make sure the Adoption Moms &/or Dads know where the animals came from.

    Not sure why you’d be against this. It’s somehow holding up the budget? I read the constitution and I’d take advantage of the 2nd amendment if someone were to intentionally harm one of my animals.
