RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERSHIP AND GUARDIANSHIP laws, governing the treatment and welfare of animals, are in effect across the country. Animal rights are improving over time and, as they do, enforcement bodies grow in manpower and will to protect the interests of animals.
It is every citizen’s right and responsibility to know the laws that apply federally, and within his/her region. The laws apply if you own or provide guardianship, work with, or otherwise come into contact with animals, domestic and wild.
