People who beat animals also beat small children and women. They are the animals. Not the pets and small defenseless animals that they abuse. The sentences are much too lenient for a " Crime with a victim" The victims of these cowards need our help. Please sign the petition. Hopefully this will result in harsher penalties for cruelty crimes , its not normal behavior and if they are allowed to get away with animal cruelty they will have more defenseless woman and children to beat and hurt. People who hurt shouldnt be allowed to be free to hurt again and again. Please sign. At least for the pet you once loved or the pets you love now. Either way. Sign for all dogs and those who fall victim to these sub human beings. If enough people sign it can make a difference . Thanks for your support. Peggy O'Malley.
