I would suggest all of us posting this article to any Facebook page we know of that involves animal rights or adoptions. Animal lovers are a very vocal and large group. This might trigger more local registries being made, which (we suspect) would eventually gather support to end all types of registries. The more lists they create, the more citizens will learn about the harm they cause and their ineffectiveness.

A registry for dogs known to attack.

A registry for repeated DUI offenders.

A registry for people who have been known to abuse their dogs…

We seem to value our animals more than our people or children..

A registry for dead beat dads/moms that don’t pay child support

A registry for ALL muslims.

A registry for parents that have left their children unattended.

Lets just be honest there will one day a registry for all people for control reasons everywhere!

Good Start!!!!
We need every one registered so the public can see how stupid it is.
