Our taxes in AZ aren't that crazy peeps. Ask someone in New York, or another NE state about tax trouble. Also ARS 13-2910 requires animals be provided food, water and shelter. That's all animals, including livestock. Otherwise, it is phrased 'cruel neglect' and is enforceable.

The biggest problem with Arizona is all the folks from the NE who moved here to get away from the NE, and now are trying to turn AZ into the NE. The second biggest problem with AZ is the folks from California...or maybe that is reversed.

"Cruel neglect" means to fail to provide an animal with necessary food, water or shelter."

13-2910 - Cruelty to animals; interference with working or service animal; classification; definitions

Note the word "necessary".

According to the OP:

"I have contacted the Humane-Society. I have contacted the state and they have informed me that "There is no law that requires these animals to have shade." Are you kidding me???? Why not???"

Given the number of trail ride places that leave 20-40 horses tacked up with out any shade all summer long (which is disgusting, IMHO), I'd have to guess shade is not considered necessary.

I suspect the Humane Society knows the law.

This is from the Apache Junction website:

"8. What should I do if I am concerned about the welfare of an animal?
All dogs must have adequate shade and shelter available and water 24 hours a day. If you are concerned or would like to report animal abuse, neglect, abandoned or are just concerned about an animal, please call the Police Department at this number (480) 982-8260.

Horses are considered livestock and are not required to have shade, however, if you feel the horse is in distress, please contact the Arizona Livestock at (602) 542-0872."

I suspect that is your answer regarding the law in AZ...I'd be more concerned about this:

Oh, I see... Taxes seems to be very high everywhere in MD, so I didn't think about it.

In Sept 2010, it sold for $110K.
$110K for the house! Now THAT is very cheap! May be I have to move down there.
