About

If you had to adopt out an animal, how important would it be to know that they are going to a safe home?

The Animal Abuse Defence Registry is an online resource for those adopting out an animal. It provides instant results as to whether or not the person you're adopting to has been convicted of animal-cruelty related charges.

The registry will also act as an effective tool that will allow the courts to notify users of the site of any recent abuse-related charges in their area. The site includes a forum between members, blog discussion topics important to our users, all keeping users safe and informed.

 * Update *

If we reach our fundraising goal, anyone who pledges $50 or more will receive a 'Safety for Everyone' t-shirt! You will be contacted once the campaign is complete for size preferences and shipping information.

Additionally, if we reach our fundraising goal, anyone who pledges $150 or more will receive this beautiful Jynae Bereogn print! You can check out more of her creative work here.

The website will offer a convenient way for veterinary clinics, pet shops, breeders, shelters, individuals, etc. to quickly look up whether or not any individual wanting to adopt an animal through them has a criminal history relating to animal abuse. Whether it be an individual who's dog just had puppies, or a farmer selling livestock, the Animal Abuse Defence Registry is a must-have resource.

While helping out at a veterinary hospital as an assistant, I realized that one of the problems in the animal adoption business is that essentially anyone can adopt an animal, even if they have a criminal history relating to animal abuse. That's why I've created the Animal Abuse Defence Registry.

Our goal is to increase the over-all quality of animal adoptions in North America, and to decrease the risk of animals being bounced from once abusive household to the next. We will assist animal cruelty survivors financially by helping to cover veterinary expenses.

To make this all a possibility, we are looking for the support of animal lovers like you to help promote our cause and bring the Animal Abuse Defence Registry from closed beta to public use. Funds received will go directly towards covering the legal expenses associated with this cause, and product development.

The more money we raise, the more we can give back. Once we reach our goal, additional funds received will help provide veterinary care for animal abuse survivors. With Kickstarter, if we don't raise at least 100% of our funding goal, we don't get any of it. That's why we need your support to help improve the quality of animal adoptions and prevent animal cruelty!

Risks and challenges

With such a big goal in mind, we face multiple challenges moving forward. These obstacles encourage us to do our absolute best to provide the best quality resources for animal adoptions available.

Our primary challenge is ensuring that all of our information is current and accurate. Using only trusted and legal sources, we offer our users peace of mind when adopting out an animal.
