New York Animal Abusers Registry

New York is not on the verge of creating an animal abuser registry. I posted about this wonderful bill just now, but minutes later I found out that while it passed in the senate it failed in the assembly.

“By maintaining the registry with current information and providing easy accessibility to the public, those involved in the sale or adoption of animals can refer to the registry before allowing an individual to take ownership of an animal.”

Thank you to sponsors Senator Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) and Assemblyman Jim Tedisco (R,C,I-Glenville). But fuck you, assembly. I believe my strong words are warranted. You think it’s okay, for instance, that someone who burned puppies alive should be able to still have animals in their possession.

We rehearsed in the church last night! We usually rehearse in the gym, the space is bigger and better lit, but we need to sing in the church before the concert to get used to the different lighting and acoustics.

  1. I heard about your blog from a fellow cat lover, Vivian Swift, and have been following you ever since, and all of your archives. Vivian’s blog has been silent since October. Does anyone know why?
