CALEB\'S LAW

TIME TO PUT A FEDERAL LAW ON THE BOOKS TO FULLY PROTECT ALL ANIMALS FROM TORTURE, NEGLECT AND ABUSE!

The horrific abuse, prolonged torture, and rape that took the life of three month old puppy Caleb last week on August 10th, 2016 in Fulton County, Georgia must NEVER be allowed to happen again. But without a shadow of a doubt, we know it will. As long as there is no Federal Protection Law in place there will be no state law strong enough to make a real difference in stopping a criminal from doing it again.



Along with the recent high profile case of gross negligence and blatant abuse of Libre, the seven week old Boston Terrier of Lancaster County, in Pennsylvania it has become abundantly clear that we need a mandatory federal protection law without further delay for all animals who are cruelly treated and abused by humans.



These are but two of the many hundreds of thousands of animal abuse incidents that are reported across America yearly. In fact according to the ASPCA an animal is being abused EVERY 60 seconds in this country!



It is essential that we have a Federal animal protection law that has the components of mandatory sentencing for the criminal segment of our population that abuses defenseless animals. Study after study have shown the direct correlation of animal abuse AND human abuse. It is one of the primary reasons the FBI started tracking convicted animal abusers in January of 2016.



Any Federal law enacted, must at a minimum, have mandatory sentencing, confiscation of any personal property solely or jointly owned (as would happen in a drug conviction), heavy fines and the convicted perpetrator must be put on a National Registry of Animal abusers that never allows any contact with an animal again in their life time.



America is the leader of the free world. It is unconscionable that we do not have a Federal Law on the books that protects our animals and this atrocity must be rectified without delay. This should not be a political issue, it is a ethical issue and should be treated with the importance it demands.



Therefore we, the tax payers, expect the will of the people to prevail and ask that you develop and pass a bill to ensure that a Federal law to fully protect animals is finally put into place during this next congressional session without any further delay.

Penalty for animal abuse and rape needs to be harsher. I read the story of Caleb it broke my heart, I couldn't keep from crying. If some sick person will do that to a poor defenseless puppy they will do it to a child, laws need to change on animal cruelty chargers.

There is So MUCH BLATANT ANIMAL CRUELTY, Abuse & Neglect in US. An Animal is ABUSED, TORTURED, RAPED & or. KILLED EVERY 60 Seconds! This MUST STOP! We Human Beings are the Most VILE, EVIL & CRUELEST OF ALL SPECIES-and we Think we are so Damn Intelligent & BETTER THAN ANIMALS?? !! I Demand STRONGER LAWS TO PROTECT ALL ANIMALS FROM HUMANS & Anyone who breaks these laws DESERVES THE HARSHEST PUNISHMENT POSSIBLE!! An Animals LIFE MUST BE RESPECTED AND JUST AS VALUABLE AS A HUMAN LIFE! People who HARM or ZkZiLL an ANIMAL DESERVES THE VERY SAME PUNISHMENT AS IF IT WERE A HUMAN LIFE. Give Animal Abusers 20 YEARS TO LIFE IN PRISON OR HOW ABOUT "An Eye for an Eye?!!! i would GLADLY SEE ANIMAL ABUSERS PUT TO DEATH OR LIF IN PRISON FOR THEIR CRIMES!!! People will CONTINUE TO ABUSE ANIMALS UNTIL THE LAW IS CHANGED TO MAKE THE PUNISHMENT EQUAL TO THE CRIME!!! I Demand JUSTICE 4 ANIMALS IN the US!! I gladly wekcome Death for Animal Abusers -if That is what it will take to STOP ANIMAL ABUSE, then make it so!! We are Sick & Tired of God's Precious Creatures being Hurt and Worse-STOP ABUSE NOW-STRONGER LAWS, HARSHER PUNISHMENT!!!

This makes me so sick I would like to go out and get justice for this dog by causing torture to the human who did this. The one who did this NEEDS to be caught and locked in chains the rest of his life for public safety.
