Constitutional Court Opens Debate to Define Whether Pets Are Part of the Family
Tax attorney Juan Pablo Díaz was mentioned in an article for Asuntos Legales about a debate opened by the Constitutional Court in Colombia regarding whether pets should be considered part of the family. The country's Supreme Court recently recognized a dog as a family member, raising questions about the legal status of companion animals. Mr. Díaz highlighted the lack of clear rules and regulations in this matter, emphasizing the need to adapt the law to the changing needs of society.
“The biggest difficulty that currently exists is a lack of rules and regulations on the matter, which clarify the scope of the notion of a multispecies family,” he said.
