This law provides that it is the policy of the state that no adoptable animal shall be euthanized.

 

 

Statute in Full:

(a) It is the policy of the state that no adoptable animal should be euthanized if it can be adopted into a suitable home. Adoptable animals include only those animals eight weeks of age or older that, at or subsequent to the time the animal is impounded or otherwise taken into possession, have manifested no sign of a behavioral or temperamental defect that could pose a health or safety risk or otherwise make the animal unsuitable for placement as a pet, and have manifested no sign of disease, injury, or congenital or hereditary condition that adversely affects the health of the animal or that is likely to adversely affect the animal’s health in the future.

(b) It is the policy of the state that no treatable animal should be euthanized. A treatable animal shall include any animal that is not adoptable but that could become adoptable with reasonable efforts. This subdivision, by itself, shall not be the basis of liability for damages regarding euthanasia.

  1. I am in shock! You uncovered this..I am in shock that no one has brought this forward and in awe that you uncovered this, Dominique! I am beyond speechless…I need to let this sink in, because this state is soooo far away from this, it is amazing that a law like this was ever passes..and even more amazing that it is not enforced. Can I give you the statistics page that I have in my saved photos to add to this? The ones on LA County?

  2. This is terrible. It’s very telling how ineffective and poorly enforced other animal rights laws are. A sad, shocking truth. Though I sent an email to the governor about this recently.
