Unit 1 Slide Deck: Retail Sale of Pets
Unit 2 Recording: Retail Sale of Pets

Animals from a wide variety of species are sold in retail locations across the country. Law enforcement, Animal Control/Animal Services, Humane Investigators, and Criminal Justice Professionals frequently receive complaints about the standard of care for animals in these establishments.

  • What constitutes a crime in these situations and how would an investigator know what is an appropriate standard of care?
  • Are there industry standards for animals sold in these environments? Are there statutes that govern the retail sale of pets?
  • Do these statutes uniformly apply to all species?

This session will cover a broad overview of the information needed when investigating cases involving the retail sale of pets.

 

 


 

The National Animal Care & Control Association (NACA) was formed in 1978 for the express purpose of assisting its members to perform their duties in a professional manner. We believe only carefully selected and properly trained animal control personnel can correct community problems resulting from irresponsible animal ownership. NACA’s purpose is to preserve the Human/Animal Bond by insisting on responsible animal ownership.
