  • Richard Card

Abstract

This chapter explores the Animal Welfare Act 2006 (AWA 2006), which seeks to prevent animal cruelty and promote animal welfare. It explains that AWA 2006 is concerned with a person responsible for or in charge of an animal on a permanent or a temporary basis. It also emphasizes that a person who owns an animal is always regarded as being a person who is responsible for that animal. The chapter outlines offences under s 4(1) of AWA 2006, which includes an act or failure to act that causes an animal to suffer or ownership of a protected animal. It defines a protected animal as those that are commonly domesticated in the British Islands and are not living in a wild state.
