I would like to make it where if one does abuse to animals one would have to enter an offenders registry. This would provide a disincentive for people to treat animals like garbage.
This would be similar to the sex offenders registry. If someone willingly starved an animal to death, murdered or mutilated an animal they would be featured on this registry.
Breeders, animal shelters and pet stores would be required to check people’s names into the registry to make sure they are not selling animals to these people. And even if someone lives in the household they would be banned from owning animals if they live in the dwelling with the individual.
How would I fund this registry, I would mandate a $135 dollar fee to each new offender after we utilize a startup fund to keep the system active.
