State Supreme Court Rules PAUSE Ballot Initiative Cannot Move Forward
Published on: 6/22/2021

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.
