Pets are a wonderful and enjoyable art of life, but don’t forget when a pet joins your family they also become your legal responsibility. While you might want to simply toss a Frisbee with Fifi, it’s important to first understand the legal requirements of pet ownership.
LegalShield has created a useful infographic describing six important legal aspects of owning a pet. They span a wide variety of responsibilities. Did you know that you may be accountable if your pet has been accused of vicious behavior in the past? Have you double checked your home or apartment contract in regards to your pet? Many people sign their contract before bringing a new pet into the family. Understanding these legal intricacies will keep you and Fifi out of trouble.
State and local laws often have different requirements for pet ownership, ranging from leash laws to inoculations. There are even localities that issue ordinances about pet noise. Parks and public places may require you to clean up after your pets. If you’re not sure where to find information for your local or state laws, LegalShield can help.
