Charged with Cruelty to Animals in Phoenix?

The laws of Arizona have protections for animals.  If you are considered to have neglected an animal or failed to take care of it properly such as feeding it or taking to a vet if it is suffering, you can be arrested and charged with this cruelty to animals.  There are many circumstances that could lead to this serious charge, such as:

  • Malnutrition
  • Dog fighting
  • Lack of interest in the health of the animal
  • Ignored health problems
  • Lack of shelter for the animal
  • Animal acting unduly subdued or fearful
  • Unsanitary living environment
  • Untreated injuries or wounds

Animals are protected under the law, and being charged with animal cruelty is no small matter.  You will have to fight your charge in court, and this particular charge can be humiliating as well as embarrassing to deal with.   The charges can be considered passive cruelty, which are acts of omission, or active cruelty, which are acts of commission against the animal.  These charges can come about as a result of a disgruntled neighbor who is unhappy with how you handle your pets or other complaint coming from the neighborhood.  No one wants to be convicted of being cruel to animals, and it is important that you get the assistance of a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Randall J.
