The Zen of Understanding the Animal Abuse Register and the Work of Maxine Berry

Overview:

We have just completed the third phase of Justice for Chunky campaign by having the Green Party make the animal abuse register policy Nonetheless Brighter Tomorrow remains committed in having a register that will operate, like sex offender register, it will record individuals convicted of abusing animals and prevent them from owning animals. By having a register, it will keep those convicted from working with animals, owning animals, and prevent them working with vulnerable people.

Why is an animal abuse register necessary?

Mahatma Ghandi said, A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members. As a society we need to protect society’s most vulnerable from abuse. Those who abuse animals are more likely to abuse people. By having an animal abuse register it will identify and prevent those who are likely to do harm from being in contact with the most vulnerable. This will lead to a lower incidences of animal abuse in this country and help lower violent crimes against people.

Before placing an individual on the register will an attempt be made to rehabilitate them?

At Brighter Tomorrow, we believe every legally competent adult is responsible for the choice they make and regardless of their background, they should be held accountable for their actions. It is our belief, as society we should have a zero-tolerance towards any form of animal abuse and do not believe a “second chance” approach is justified. Nonetheless, we believe where appropriate and where the individual’s needs meet the objective of a rehabilitation program, they should receive support to improve their life. This means any rehabilitation is done while the individual is on the register instead of in lieu of the register.

Will this campaign push for tougher sentencing of those who abuse animals?

We believe the laws around animal abuse are too lax, especially the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and encourage our supporters to write their MPs to push for tougher sentences for those who abuse animals. As discussions occur about how the register will operate and how to identify individuals who will be placed on the register, it is possible some laws may need to be changed. However, at this stage, asking for tougher sentences is not a part of our vision for the register.

How long will it take before the animal abuse registry becomes law?

We are following a process and it is difficult, at this stage, to predict. The more support we get and the more MPs are contacted the swifter this will become law.

Will Chunky still be a part of the campaign?

As we get updates about Chunky we will post them on Facebook and we will never forget Chunky. However, this campaign is bigger than one animal and it is about protecting all animals. So, yes Chunky will be a part of this campaign but he will not be the only focus.

Purpose of this site is allow individuals who are not typically on Facebook find us and for those on Facebook it provides information that may not always be easy to find. This site will contain the core information, not all of the news stories and updates you find on the Facebook site. Furthermore this site our supporters the opportunity to interact, ask questions, learn about the animal abuse register campaign; and to further understand our goal.

Next, there is another purpose to this site. Maxine, founder of the Justice for Chunky petition, wants to sell slime, soaps, candles, jewellery; and provide animal abuse register campaign items. Campaign related items will be similar to the Justice for Chunky t-shirts and coffee mugs that have been previously provided. However campaign related items will mean they will come from a third-party supplier. By being able to make these items for you, it will give Maxine of saying thank you for the support and hopefully it will allow you to feel a part of the campaign. Also, it will give you the change to buy something personally made by her and a chance to support the campaign.

Can You Spare 5 Minutes? 30 Ideas for Supporting the Animal Abuse Register

Change does not instantly happen.  Instead change is slow, sometimes with set-backs, other times there are delays and for change to occur it requires support. Over the last 18 months we have seen change slowly happen and an animal abuse register is quite possible, though not guaranteed. Currently we have over a half-million voices that have signed the petition calling for an animal abuse register in the UK. The more interest people take in helping the more likely the register can become a reality. To you, it may not seem possible that one person can make a difference but from what I have seen, I believe we all have the power to make a difference. Below is a list of 25 things you can do today to make a difference and contribute in helping us deliver the animal abuse register. Finally I encourage you to periodically check back because I may add to it or make changes.
