Animal Protection Laws, US and Canada by State and Province


By Michael J. Lynch, University of South Florida, FL


In addition to federal laws such as the Animal Welfare Act (see entry in this dictionary, AWA) and the Horse Protection Act (see entry in this dictionary, HPA), all US states have their own animal protection statutes. The Animal Legal Defense Fund maintains a webpage with links to the animal protection statutes for all US states and for all Canadian Provinces (Animal Law Link). These laws are downloadable as PDF files. Just click on the state or province of interest.
