Although Florida law primarily treats pets as just another piece of property, for pet owners, they are treasured members of the family. When it comes to providing the best care for our furry (or scaly or feathery) children, we consider many issues: nutrition, training, socialization, health, and safety, but what about our legal rights as pet guardians? Pet parents encounter a myriad of legal issues relating to their beloved pets and they are increasingly turning to the courts for protection. The attorneys at The Goodwin Firm will come to your rescue!
