This bill would require institutions of higher education, and related research facilities, to offer cats and dogs no longer used for educational, research, or scientific purposes to animal rescue organizations for adoption prior to euthanizing the animals. The bill would not apply to cats or dogs that are required to be euthanized for health or safety reasons. Under the bill, an institution or facility that is required to offer cats or dogs for adoption through an animal rescue organization may enter into an agreement with an animal rescue organization to meet this requirement on an on-going basis. Also, under the bill, an institution or facility that provides a cat or dog to an animal rescue organization would be immune from any civil liability resulting from the transfer of the animal, provided the institution or facility acted in good faith concerning the health and physical condition of the cat or dog.
