Oregon Humane SocietyThe Animal Abuse prosecutor coordinates with the Oregon Humane Society and local law enforcement to guide investigations, charge cases, and hold defendants accountable for crimes they commit against animals. Justice for animals takes many forms: a criminal conviction for the abuser, probationary terms that mean animal abusers cannot possess animals, and civil processes that allow the state to remove animals from people convicted of abuse.
