It's Time To End Animal Cruelty
About The Initiative
The Abuse, Neglect, and Assault Exemption Modification and Improvement Act
Initiative Petition 13, formally titled the Abuse, Neglect, and Assault Exemption Modification and Improvement Act, is a ballot initiative filed with the state of Oregon for the November 2022 general election.
If enacted, IP13 would remove many of the exemptions from Oregon’s laws against animal abuse, animal neglect, and animal sexual assault. Due to these exemptions, animals on farms, in laboratories, in exhibitions, and in the wild are not currently protected under these laws.
We believe everyone should be equally protected under the law, and that all animals deserve equal consideration, regardless of whether or not we consider them our companions. All animals deserve a life free from cruelty.
Before it gets to the ballot, we need to collect 112,020 signatures from registered voters in the state of Oregon. If you want to help, find out how you can volunteer to collect signatures or how you can donate to the campaign. You can read the full text of IP 13 here.
