New Taxas Law Prevents Animal Abusers from Owning Pets

A new Taxas Law Prevents Animal Abusers from owning pets.

House Bill 598 reaches beyond the conventional boundaries of animal cruelty.

By covering a spectrum of offenses under the Texas penal code and analogous statutes at the federal and state levels.

Convicted individuals, regardless of the severity of their crime, are prohibited from owning any type of animal during the specified five-year period.

The law underscores a commitment to a zero-tolerance approach toward any form of animal abuse.

Violating the possession ban carries consequences.

Repeat offenses escalate the severity to a Class B misdemeanor, carrying a potential fine of $2,000 and the prospect of up to 180 days in jail.
