Animal Cruelty Laws by State. Laws relating to animals can vary widely from state to state. To enable you to find your state's laws quickly and easily, the ASPCA has partnered with the Michigan State University College of Law's Animal Legal & Historical Center to share its online database of animal-related laws, and their penalties, from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This database is updated and expanded on a regular basis.
