Why do good owners have to pay for the bad ones?
Not so much a money issue, but more like a screening.
Then, if you get approved to be a pet owner, they reserve the right to visit and check up of the pet for a certain amount of time to make sure it is in good health and not abused.
Vilolators would risk a huge fine and possible jail time if animal is abused.
I'd pay a small fee for this to be a law!
I am sick and tired of hearing about people abusing animals.
Here is NJ, I think last year some little punk kid and his friends napped the dog next door (little chi or something) and punted it like a football! Him and his friends stood there laughing.
The dog died before it hit the ground!!
Let me tell you, if that were my dog he kicked, I would be in jail right now!
Kid is in jail..or was. Laws are not tough enough for this crap.
Something needs to be done.
