There are many situations a pet owner or anyone concerned with animal welfare may face. Fortunately, in an era where pets are now regarded as family members by most people, there are an abundance of organizations, agencies and websites that can help identified in the column on the left.
Pets are regarded under the law as personal property that, without prior planning, will pass to your heirs just like your your couch or your car. The column on the right allows you to review the many California statutes that affect dogs, cats and other domesticated and non-domesticated animals. It will also discuss appellate cases or particular code provisions that relate to the damages you may recover if your pet is killed or injured.
If you have any questions, you can reach me through my Contact page. I look forward to speaking with you if doing so can help you or your pet. There is nothing, after all, more important than protecting a family member.
