I personally think this should be nation wide. By now we know animal abuse many times leads to people abuse and serial killing.

Animal abusers in N.Y. may have to register like sex offenders - latimes.com

No, I do not agree and I find the whole thing to be ridiculous.

1) If I go to a store to buy a pet, I am not letting some power hungry, zealot run a background check to see if I am on some list. "YOUR PAPERS PLEASE...." No, I am not giving you anything except a method of payment.

2) I find the strong concern for animals to be nice, but at the same time, it gets too much. With all the cruelty and injustice that goes on towards humans, I find it unecessary (let's say for instance...) to harass someone for needing to give their cat away for whatever reason.

3) Continuing from part 2, it seems off topic, but not really. I am tired of going to email lists or message boards and seeing people get attacked because they are looking for a new home for their pet. It's like you have to write a 12 page disclaimer, before you even post anything to keep the animal nuts at bay.

4) I think NY is a social experiment. Let's see how much people will take. First we will ban soft drinks. Then we will start creating registries of people....

5) Who is paying for this?

I go with the majority. Not all abusers have a face like that football guy that is instantaneously recognized. I don't want my animals anywhere around anyone even SUSPECTED of abuse, and I surely don't want them employed anywhere my dogs might be, adopting from my local shelter, or in possession of a pet of any kind.

Agree, agree, agree. A thousand times I would vote for that.

I tell the story all the time about the perv trying to rescue a senior female Rottie from our rescue - he was stopped in time (thanks, Google!).

I absolutely think there should be a national registry and I don't think juveniles should be protected either...it's an early indicator of sociopathy or psychopathy and yeah - they need to be known early on.

nobody is going to be classified as an animal abuser because they have to rehome a pet. Ridiculous.

Reminds me of the ridiculous excuses against trying to pass the ERA in the 70"s: No more segregated restrooms by sex and we will all have to change clothes in the same dressing rooms at the Y and at stores. and endless hysterical fear mongering about something which would have brought about a great deal of good.

And anybody who can read a newspaper knows not to purchase a pet from a pet store because most of them come from puppy mills which are a nightmare. Get a pet from a shelter or a rescue.
