Depends - some jurisdictions are treating animals more like companions and less like tangible personal property. What state?
And what do you mean when you say "it is under her name"? Do you mean at the vet's office?
Getting law enforcement officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Getting a college degree is one of the best things that you can do if you want to become a law enforcement officer. As you probably know, you don't have to start out as a local law enforcement officer before becoming a federal law enforcement officer. Get at least a 4 year degree. If you have the ability, definitely get an advanced degree. Many people would suggest choosing a major other than criminal justice. You should learn what you need to know about criminal justice during the academy, during your field training, and during your first couple years on the job. There are many good majors for law enforcement officers and people that want to become law enforcement officers. Accounting, business, communications, computer science, a foreign language, and law are some examples. I would choose business or a computer related degree. Whatever major you choose, make the most of your time and money. Get the highest grade point average that you can. Participate in a couple extracurricular activities such as student government, criminal justice club, or sports. Consider trying to get an internship with a law enforcement agency while in college. Consider doing some regular volunteer work. Don't do anything illegal. Maintain a good reputation. Best of luck!
