Abstract:     
Faculty members at Valparaiso University School of Law who attain the rank of full professor are expected to deliver an inaugural lecture to the University community and the public at large. This article is based on that lecture, delivered on September 25, 2008. This Article begins by distinguishing between “animal law,” “animal rights,” and “animal welfare” and discussing the growth of the field of animal law. It continues by setting forth the statistics on the number of companion animals in the United States (“U.S.”) and information about the households who have companion animals. The remainder of the article analyzes some of the legal issues impacting humans who have animal companions.
