Minnesota Bird Care Statute

Minnesota Statute 2000 Chapter 346.40 (Pet Birds) describes the bird care and handling standards required by law in Minnesota.

This statute applies only in the state of MN. Animal protection laws vary greatly from state to state, so please consult your appropriate state statutes and local humane societies. The Animal Legal Defense Fund may also be able to assist you with a specific case. The legal process for removing an animal kept in substandard conditions is complex and MUST be followed exactly even in the most dire circumstances. Please contact MAARS for assistance if you know of birds that are not being kept in accordance with this statute.
