Over half-million signatures exist on the Justice for Chunky petition calling for an Animal Abuse Register. Barely a day goes by when print media does not cover a story of an animal abuse. Politicians and the media are discussing. It is something that will, someday, become law because it impacts us all. What is the animal abuse register? How do you become involved? In the coming days and months these questions will be answered. As we build and add to this site there will be chances for you to input to us about your views. If you are unsure what the register is about and how it might impact you, watch the below video containing clips regarding the discussion of the animal abuse register by the Green Party. It will answer some of your questions but if you want more information then please visit our Facebook site. Finally if you have not already signed the petition, please sign it and keep updated on our progress.
In the background restless voices can be heard, can you hear them? I can hear them. They are calling for a change in Britain and they are calling for a change to the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to provide Animal Abuse Register with longer sentences for animal cruelty.
Animal abuse does not only impact animals, it impacts people too. There is a link between animal abuse and serious crimes. This does not mean everyone who abuses an animal will be a murder. Nonetheless it does mean, for some, the risk exists. By having a register it will help to track and provide help to those who need it. Also it will help to make Britain a safer and secure country.
How can you get your voice heard about the register? All of us can make a difference. Plaid Cymru are definitely hearing the restless voices and the Green Party are beginning to hear them too . Hopefully soon other parties with hear the voices of those yearning for a register.
The quickest way in getting your voice heard is writing your MP supporting the animal abuse register or attending their surgery to discuss the need for an animal abuse register. Likewise, take time write the editor of you local paper or sign the petition. If you are a member of a United Kingdom political party raise the issue and keep updated on the progress of the register.
