We are happy to share another pre-recorded animal law webinar with David Favre, the Professor of Law at Michigan State University! The event was organized under the Project “Amplifying the Interests of Animals in Kazakhstan.”

This presentation discussed what are legal rights for animals, discuss the two primary paths forward, and how dogs, because of their emotional attachment with humans, are creating the first intrusion into the real-world arena of legal rights. Legal rights will arise because of the logic of protecting other beings who are like humans or because of the emotional attachment to non-human animals that are now part of the core of millions of families; logic or emotion. In the United States, the state legislatures are being to acknowledge that companion animals can and should be recognized as individuals with interests and needs apart from their human companions.
