US animal protection laws ranked by State 2019

Here’s the best and the worst States ranked according to their animal protection laws, published by the Animal Legal Defense Fund. No surprise Kentucky — where we work out of now — is so close to the bottom in 47th place. Only New Mexico, Iowa and Mississippi are lower.

Congratulations Illinois

Illinois are #1 in the country. Again. Well done Illinois.

Oregon

Surprised that Oregon is #2 where they have the infamous Omak Suicide Race which we cannot seem to get shut down. Obviously the Fund for Horses needs to take a much closer look.

Horse tripping is illegal in Oregon, but the law is not enforced. So more work clearly needs to be done on this as well.
