What other laws apply to animals?

In our area there are different "animal ordinances" that apply to you and your animals, depending on where you live. There are different sets of laws in Albuquerque, Los Ranchos, Tijeras, Corrales, Rio Rancho, and the unincorporated areas of the County. The laws are similar, but you should be aware of what is required in your area. Contact the appropriate Animal Control agency and ask for a copy of your local animal control ordinance. Your local Zoning or Environmental Health laws might also address animals. There are also State and Federal laws that prohibit cruelty to animals, regulate livestock, and require permits and inspections for the breeding, sale, and display of some animals. Bernalillo County's Animal Care Ordinance (Chapter 6) can be found by clicking here.
