Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to ask your support for legislation that would establish a statewide animal abuser registry in Rhode Island. H 7025 would create a database of individuals convicted of animal abuse crimes in order to assist law enforcement in preventing future animal abuse. The bill would also require animal shelters, pet stores and animal breeders to check the registry before transferring an animal to a new owner.The purpose of establishing an animal abuser registry is to provide a resource for law enforcement, shelters and adoption centers to help identify convicted animal abusers who are involved in new allegations of abuse or who are trying to adopt an animal who may then be put in harm's way. Access to this information is crucial in keeping companion animals out of the hands of convicted abusers.With similar legislation introduced in multiple states across the nation, it is clear that there is a strong public interest in establishing animal abuser registries. The creation of an animal abuser registry in Rhode Island would better protect our animals and reduce the likelihood of convicted animal abusers victimizing animals in the future.Please support the establishment of a database of convicted animal abusers and help protect animals from harm.
