|Subject:||Extending the hold time of seized, unlicensed dogs|
|In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation that will amend the Dog Law of 1982. This legislation would require that unlicensed dogs who are seized and detained be kept for a period of 72 hours instead of the current 48-hour time frame that is set in the law.
Providing this additional 24 hours would allow dog owners who may not be in the immediate area to have an extra day in which to return home, or to make other arrangements, and pick up their beloved family member before it is ultimately put up for adoption or euthanized.
Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.
