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.
