This is an excellent idea. I wish we have that here in Canada.

ALBANY – The New York State Senate has passed legislation that will require those that violate Buster’s Law by abusing animals register their name and address with the division of criminal justice services, undergo a psychiatric evaluation and will also ban them from ever owning a pet again, Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) announced Tuesday. Buster’s Law, which was passed in 1999, made animal cruelty in New York state a felony. The law was named after a cat that was doused in kerosene and lit on fire in 1997. Now Senator Ball has passed a bill in the Senate to take “Buster’s Law” even further and create an animal abuse registry.

  1. It’s about time, too! I was so ecstatic when I heard the news that I almost cried!!! The animal welfare community has been pleading for this for a very long time, and it’s great to see some progress being made. Now everywhere else needs to adopt an animal abuse registry.
