After reading an article about a New Jersey woman who was charged with torturing her pit bull puppy by starving it and throwing it 19 stories down a garbage chute, Eva Longoria and Alyssa Milano have begun their support for an online petition that will call for more severe punishment of those convicted of animal abuse.

Longoria has posted the link to her twitter, to which Milano adds, “if you love animals, please consider signing this.”

Also on the petition signing bandwagon is Julie Benz, who claims they need 5,000 signatures (the count is currently at 4,952) and further backed by Eliza Dushku.

The Jersey woman, Kisha Curtis, is currently facing 18 months in jail or a $3,000 fine if convicted.

    Is Eva still wearing fur? I know she used to. Because if she’s concerned about animal cruelty, there’s a heck of a lot of cruelty that goes on in that industry. Buying fur is basically condoning animal torture.

    Eva wants to put herself in jail. Interesting…

    There definitely needs to be tougher laws and more severe punishment for people who abuse animals.
