The term “elder abuse” refers to the physical and financial attack on elderly people (65 years and older) and dependent adults (18-64). Perpetrators of elder abuse are most likely to be adult children or spouses, more likely to be male, to have a history of past or current substance abuse, have mental or physical health problems, have had trouble with the police, are unemployed or have financial problems.

The law affects just about every aspect of the world we live in. Pets are no exception. Nolo Press has published a book on laws affecting dogs and their owners, titled Every Dog’s Legal Guide and written by Mary Randolph. Not only is the information in this book useful to current owners, but it also has a section on buying a dog for those soon-to-be owners.
