Animal Abuse

In 2013, Oregon was the first state to receive funding from the Animal Legal Defense Fund for a dedicated, full-time animal cruelty prosecutor. This fully sworn prosecutor—Deputy District Attorney Jake Kamins—is available to handle animal abuse cases for any one of Oregon’s 36 counties. His sole responsibility is putting animal abusers on trial, and he is based out of Corvallis, Oregon in the Benton County District Attorney’s office.
