Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Animal rescues. Amends the Comprehensive Animal Laws by adding: (i) definitions of facility, foster care provider and home-based rescue; (ii) requirements for pounds and animal shelters to provide a signed statement to the State Veterinarian certifying that none of the directors, operators, staff, or animal caregivers has ever been convicted of animal cruelty, neglect, or abandonment; (iii) a section providing for the confinement and disposition of companion animals by entities other than pounds and animal shelters; (iv) requirements for foster homes; and (v) various notification requirements regarding found companion animals. This bill also clarifies the definition of animal shelter by specifically excluding residential dwellings and their surrounding property. This bill deletes language providing the State Veterinarian with the authority to conduct inspections of companion animal foster homes, the registration requirements for companion animal rescue agencies and foster homes, and all references to companion animal rescue agencies. This bill incorporates SB 895.
