In our first step of legislative initiatives, AA will be re-introducing a bill to the Virginia legislature to propose creation of a statewide animal abusers’ registry in Virginia, available online, that would list the names of those convicted of animal abuse, similar to sexual offender registries. In addition, the proposal may seek to make it a crime for a pet dealer to sell to anyone on the list.

Our Goals

This is just the beginning

Animal Abuser Registries

Deterrent Punishments

Other states have done this. So can we! Read what Florida has passed here.
