Colorado Ballot Initiative 16 - Pause Act
Published on: 4/14/2021
The initiative informally titled "Protect Animals from Unnecessary Suffering and Exploitation" (PAUSE) is a ballot initiative filed with the state of Colorado for the November 2022 midterm election. If the initiative receives enough signatures (124,600 registered Colorado voters), it will be added to the ballot for a vote.

While we all want to protect animals from suffering and exploitation,
this ballot initiative contains legislative language that will create problems for dog breeders, farmers, and ranchers in our state. It is important that we educate ourselves about this initiative and do what we can to stop it before it goes to ballot.

On February 22, a Colorado House committee will consider a bill that restricts consumer choice and makes false claims about breeders.   

Colorado residents are encouraged to contact the House Agriculture, Livestock and Water Committee to express concerns with House Bill 21-1102. 

This bill would place certain regulations on current pet stores and only allow those currently licensed to sell dogs and cats in the future.
