North Carolina Ranked #32 By U.S. Humane Society

The Humane Society of the United States has released its 2010 "Humane State Ranking," a comprehensive report rating all 50 states on a wide range of animal protection laws.

North Carolina is ranked #32. The state received a score of 23 out of 65.

The Humane Society noted that North Carolina has made cockfighting a felony, passed a pet protection line in 2009, upgraded animal cruelty laws and requires licensing of puppy mills. But the society also reports the state does not require inspection or a limit to the number of animals in those facilities.

California ranked #1 with a score of 45 out of 65. South Dakota was last.
