Protect Animals from Unnecessary Suffering
By extending current animal abuse laws from pets to farmed animals, we can protect them from abuse.
Focus of the Campaign
The PAUSE campaign is a ballot initiative filed for the 2022 mid-term election. Current animal abuse laws have a complete exception for farmed animals. The focus of this campaign is to define animal abuse for farmed animals; while allowing for animal agriculture to exist.
If enacted, the amended statutes would extend the basic animal abuse laws already written for dogs and cats to cows, pigs, chickens, etc. A subsection is added to maintain an exception for slaughter once the animal has reached adulthood.
