In August, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) succeeded in amending H.R. 1900,
the Juvenile Crime Control and Delinquency Prevention Act of 2001, to
address the problem of juveniles who abuse animals. His amendment provides
funding for programs designed to prevent juvenile delinquency, including
“programs designed to prevent animal cruelty by juveniles and to counsel
juveniles who commit animal cruelty offenses, including partnerships among
law enforcement agencies, animal control officers, social service
agencies, and school officials.” On September 20th, the House passed H.R.
1900. Stay tuned to for info on the bill’s progress in the
