Animal Law

This guide was created by law librarian Terri Saint-Amour, who combines her career expertise with a special love of animals both as a "mom" to five cats and a blind, elderly chihuahua, and a volunteer with the Animal Rescue League of Boston.


Use the tabs to navigate through this guide - it includes information on organizations (domestic and international), secondary sources, statutes and case law, as well as refers you to other research guides. Links to materials in print form can be found in the Harvard Law Library.

Icons have been included on this guide to denote whether online materials are limited in use to members of the Harvard Community at large, or specifically to the Harvard Law Library, just hover over them to see details. For more detailed information about a database, click on the little "i" next to an item's name and a pop-up box should appear.

Please note that this guide is not meant to be all-inclusive but to be used as a starting point for your research.

I would greatly welcome any suggestions for legal resources to include on this guide.
