South Carolina Dangerous Animal Surety Bond

What is a South Carolina Dangerous Animal Bond?

  • A South Carolina Dangerous Animal Bond is a $50,000 surety bond that can be posted by the owner of a dangerous animal.
  • South Carolina Statutes § 47-3-760 requires the person owning a dangerous animal to provide proof of liability insurance or a surety bond of at least $50,000. The bond secures the owner for personal injuries inflicted by the dangerous animal.
  • Per South Carolina Statutes, a dangerous animal is an animal of the canine or feline family which the owner knows or reasonably should know has a propensity, tendency, or disposition to attack unprovoked, cause injury, or otherwise endanger the safety of human beings or domestic animals; which makes an unprovoked attack that causes bodily injury to a human being and the attack occurs in a place other than the place where the animal is confined as required by Section 47-3-720; or commits unprovoked acts in a place other than the place where the animal is confined as required by Section 47-3-720 and those acts cause a person to reasonably believe that the animal will attack and cause bodily injury to a human being; which is owned or harbored primarily or in part for the purpose of fighting or which is trained for fighting.

  • Due to the risk from the perspective of the bonding company, these bonds are very carefully underwritten. In all cases, a credit check and full collateral will be required. This bond is for $50,000, therefore, the owner of the dangerous animal must post $50,000.00 in collateral to the surety company. This can be in the form of cash (via wire transfer) or an irrevocable letter of credit payable to the surety.
  • If the credit report checks out and full collateral is posted, the cost of the bond is usually between 1-2% of the bond amount. In this case, the bond could cost as low as $500 to $1,000 per year.
  • The surety bond remains in full force and effect as long as the owner possesses the animal. The bond is only canceled if the owner gives the animal up for adoption or if the animal passes away. Keep in mind that bonds have a statute of limitations. Some are very extensive, this means that even though you may not own the animal anymore, you are still liable for any damages that may have occurred while you did own the animal. That means if you give the animal away today, you are still liable for anything that happened while you had the animal.
