Create Online Registry for Animal Abusers


Target: Arizona State Senate President Andy Biggs

Goal: Garner support for a state-wide animal abuser registry.

The state of Arizona could see an official animal abuser registry, much like the sex offender registry, if legislation by a local lawmaker passes. Inclusion in the registry would be based on a first conviction for one year and a second conviction for life. Inform the Arizona State Senate President that there is nationwide support for the public designation of animal abusers.

Currently, there is no way for animal sellers to ensure that their customers have no history of abusing animals. Since the abuse of animals is morally reprehensible, there is no need for a sympathetic protection of their identities at the risk of future abuse.

Senator Steve Farley’s bill would put offenders on the registry for one year for their first conviction of bestiality, cruelty to animals, animal fighting, presence at an animal fight, or equine tripping. A second conviction would lead to a lifetime on the online registry. Any failure to register after conviction would be a misdemeanor offense.

A campaign for a nationwide animal abuse registry has been run by the Animal Legal Defense Fund for some time and the creation of this database in Arizona could expedite that achievement. Sign below and tell the Arizona State Senate President that you support Senator Farley’s bill to create an animal abuse registry.


Dear Senator Biggs,

I commend Senator Farley’s efforts to create the nation’s first animal abuse registry. The decision to abuse an animal derives from a base violent nature that is hard to rehabilitate. Any unpunished animal abuse contributes to a culture of accepted violence which reinforces the violence between humans.

We must start eradicating the violence in our culture by punishing those who abuse animals. In addition to informing those who wish to sell animals, the registry would provide many other types of people looking to avoid dealings with violent people, and I urge you to gather support in the Arizona State Senate to pass Senator Farley’s bill, SB 1301.
