Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Animal Control Act. Removes the provision that any dog found running at large contrary to the Act a second or subsequent time must be spayed or neutered, if not already spayed or neutered, within 30 days of being reclaimed and that failure to do so will result in the impoundment of the dog. Provides that a dog running at large with 3 or more other dogs, if deemed a potentially dangerous dog, may (rather than shall) be spayed or neutered and microchipped within 14 days after the completion of all complaint and appeal proceedings. Sets forth the complaint and appeal procedures the owner may take to appeal the designation of potentially dangerous dog.
