Alphabetical List of People Convicted of Animal Abuse or Neglect in Canada

(click on the names below to access information about the offenders)

Names with the following symbol beside them () denote individuals who have been convicted of other crimes of violence in addition to animal cruelty (there may be other offenders on this list who have also been convicted of other such crimes but the information is not known) or have seemingly used animals to coerce, manipulate, or otherwise control a human.
Such individuals should be considered a potential threat to public safety.

Although there are photos associated with most offender records, the vast majority of the photos are of the offenders themselves. There are some records that contain photos of the animals that were abused, but we attempt to keep graphic photos to a minimum. Descriptions of the abuse the animals suffered may be graphic, but we feel it is important to include this information.
