San Francisco might start tracking animal abusers 

Those convicted of animal abuse or having been proven to have neglected animals could end up listed in a database for animal rescue groups and city shelters to ensure those with records of animal abuse don’t end up adopting them.

Such a database seems to be catching on. A bill in Texas is gaining support that would create a web-based public registry of animal abusers.

The Animal Care and Control Commission meets Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall in Room 408 to discuss whether to request the Board of Supervisors approve of the plan.
