Animal Rights

An Act protecting abandoned animals in vacant properties – S.1127

This bill would help provide protection and prevent further harm to abandoned animals in foreclosed and vacated properties. The bill would require that landlords and foreclosing owners check recently vacated and foreclosed units within 5 days for the presence of abandoned animals.  If an abandoned animal is found, the landlord or foreclosing owner would be required to immediately notify an animal control officer.
