This bill amends current law to require a mental health evaluation for any animal cruelty offender, whether an adult or a juvenile, to be followed by mental health counseling if warranted by the evaluation. It is designated "Shyanne's Law" in recognition of Shyanne, a dog that died in the care of an animal behaviorist who had been previously observed abusing an animal.
