Animal Keeper

The Federal Supreme Court (BGH) defines the following persons as animal owners:

  • people determining power over the animal,
  •  paying the costs of the animal out of his own interest,
  • claiming the general value and benefit of the animal for themselves and
  • the risk of its loss.

The animal keeping is independent of the property. If an animal has reached a person, he is the owner if he feeds and accommodates the animal for a longer period of time.  This gives rise to a liability which the pet owner must assume for the animal. >> Animals Liability
