Animal rights and Nonprofit lawyer Russ Mead explores contemporary legal issues facing the nonprofit animal community.



In representing animal-related nonprofits, Mead found that the same legal nonprofit issues arise time and time again, issues such as "Can a nonprofit employee volunteer for the nonprofit ?" Or "What does the nonprofit need to do to accommodate guests and volunteers who have disabilities?" This book is the basis for law school courses in nonprofit animal law, as well as a valuable resource for any lawyer who represents animal-related nonprofits, and those who love animals and volunteer for local animal-related nonprofit organizations.
