Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Animal Welfare Act. Provides that the definition of "kennel operator" does not include an animal control facility operated directly by a government agency; a veterinary hospital that does not board animals overnight for other than ongoing veterinary treatment; or a person who owns, has possession of, or harbors 5 or fewer females capable of reproduction, unless the animals are being kept overnight for a fee or compensation. Requires veterinary hospitals engaged in boarding services to obtain kennel operator licenses. Requires applicants for original licensure to provide proof of zoning compliance. Provides that the Illinois Department of Agriculture may refuse to issue a license if the applicant, or a known prospective employee of the applicant, has ever been convicted of violating an animal cruelty statute. Provides that the Department shall not (instead of may refuse to) issue or renew a license and shall (instead of may) suspend or revoke a license if an applicant or licensee has engaged in certain activities or made certain types of misleading statements. Increases licensing fees. Amends the Humane Care for Animals Act. Changes the definition of "animal shelter" to exclude veterinary hospitals or clinics that also operate overnight boarding facilities.
