This bill prohibits any person found guilty of, or liable for, a violation of the State animal cruelty laws from owning, keeping, or harboring an animal. The bill prohibits any such person from licensing or registering a dog or cat. The bill also provides for the seizure and confiscation of animals from people convicted of, or liable for, a violation of the animal cruelty laws. The bill also directs the Department of Health and Senior Services to establish a readily identifiable location on the department's website where any member of the public may access the list of such violators. The department is currently required to maintain such a list for persons ineligible to be animal control officers. The bill further directs the department to confirm there are no changes to the online list or update the online list at that location at least every 30 days. Finally, the bill directs the department to issue to each municipal clerk, and to each kennel, shelter, pound, and pet shop known to the department, as soon as practicable, a notice in writing with information about the list and how it can be accessed.
