What if God put these animals here to test and gauge our extent or lack of compassion? Where would you stand? Do the right thing.

Then maybe God has a poor sence of testing us

No more Animal Abuse nor abandonment.
The owners should serve time in jail and pay a high fine.
If they have any other animals the should be taken from them and order them they cannot own anymore pets. They should be mandatory to register the pets and be on a list of a no pet order.

Cruelty is a man made trait that animals could do without.

While there are human children still being abused, an animal is not on my priority list. Sorry.

Yes, the horrible abuse of animals, children, women, mentally and physically disabled people, and elderly persons goes on and on. It seems there is no shortage of horrible people who will take advantage of those who are weaker than they are, especially if they are helpless or powerless. In this case however, humans who have unchecked power over voiceless animals who cannot even speak for themselves and who are considered to be "things" that it's ok to do with what you want because "they're...

Yes, the horrible abuse of animals, children, women, mentally and physically disabled people, and elderly persons goes on and on. It seems there is no shortage of horrible people who will take advantage of those who are weaker than they are, especially if they are helpless or powerless. In this case however, humans who have unchecked power over voiceless animals who cannot even speak for themselves and who are considered to be "things" that it's ok to do with what you want because "they're only animals." This is the attitude held by the majority even in the most heinous of cases - like the woman who killed her boyfriend's dog by shoving TOOLS down its throat - a claw hammer, a metal funnel, screwdriver, plumber's pipe, and seven other LARGE metal objects. Her attorney successfully got her acquitted because as he argued to the jury, "it's not like she did it to a person. It's not that bad." What penalties exist are light, if they are enforced at all, whereas if someone tied a child behind a car and dragged it for a mile the perpetrator would most definitely be arrested, prosecuted for a felony, and spend the better part of the rest of his life in prison. Your concern for children is commendable, but your attitude that somehow animals are lesser beings than humans illustrates exactly the same callousness and disregard for life that is at the root of this kind of animal abuse. As you have clearly stated that you have no interest in this petition, it makes one wonder why you are here. If you truly care about abused children, perhaps your time would be better spent in finding or starting a petition to protect them instead of chastising and criticizing people who are concerned with stopping the abuse of animals. I suspect, however, that you’re only here to get attention by attempting to arouse the ire of animal lovers. Seems like a lot of trouble to go to just to show a lack of support. Most folks who don’t care about an issue would just not go to that page and post. I for one couldn't care less about your "priority" list, particularly since your highest priority appears to be calling attention to yourself.

People who abuse animals are cowards and should be punished.

I think those who abuse animals should have the same thing done to them.

Isn't this how abuse begins? First the dog and then maybe a child or loved one? Looks like a freakin serial killer in the making. That poor poor little dog.

shoot the dude who did that! I am sorry, but if you can do that to an animal, you should be dragged from the same vehicle you dragged that dog!
