Oregon: Animal Crime Registry Act Proposed

Oregon: Animal Crime Registry Act Proposed

Name: Oregon Animal Crime Registry 

Bill Number: HB 2719

A statewide animal abuser registry is a crucial tool to help law enforcement, shelters and adoption centers keep track of convicted abusers and prevent animals from falling into the hands of convicted abusers. HB 2719 would require convicted animal abusers to register with the Department of State Policy, city police department or county sheriff’s office. The purpose of the registry is to help law enforcement authorities. However, information would also be available online for public use.

Please support HB 2719 and help establish a statewide animal crimes registry in Oregon

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to ask your support for legislation that would establish a statewide animal crimes registry in Oregon. HB 2719 would create a publicly-accessible database of individuals convicted of animal cruelty in order to assist law enforcement agencies in preventing the commission of future animal crimes.

The purpose of establishing an animal crimes registry is to provide a resource for law enforcement, shelters and adoption centers to help identify convicted animal abusers who are involved in new allegations of abuse or who are trying to adopt an animal who may then be put in harm's way. Access to this information is crucial in keeping companion animals out of the hands of convicted abusers.

With similar legislation introduced in multiple states across the nation, it is clear that there is a strong public interest in establishing animal crimes or animal abuser registries. The creation of an animal crimes registry in Oregon would better protect our animals and reduce the likelihood of convicted animal abusers victimizing animals in the future.

Please support the establishment of a database of convicted animal abusers and help protect animals from harm.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
