In early January the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) announced the publication of the 2016 U.S. Animal Protection Laws Rankings Report, The eleventh edition of the Animal Protection Laws compendium contains the general animal protection and related statutes for all of the states, principal districts and territories of the United States of America, and for all of Canada.
The report highlights the top, middle, and bottom tiers of jurisdictions and notes the “Best Five” and “Worst Five” states overall. Nevada is #24 – in the middle tier!
