Will places like humane societies, shelters and breeders use the registry so those people won't be able to buy pets?
Suffolk County Establishes First Public Animal Abuser Registry in Nation - Huntington, NY Patch
Cooper has taken the process even further by already drafting up a follow-up bill, which will require pet stores, animal shelters and breeders to check into the identity of those seeking to purchase a pet before selling to them. The bill will be voted on next month.
Wouldn't that be wonderful? It's not perfect but it's a great example and a great step in the right direction.

The problem is it will actual hurt animal cruelty prosecution 1. trial judges are going to be less likely to convict more minor accounts and much more case will be go to trial rather than pled out.
