2002 – Protecting Animals Seized in Cruelty Cases

This law is designed to protect animals that have been abused and have been seized by law enforcement authorities.  These animals can spend years in “legal limbo” while the case goes to trial.  This law allows the court to require the defendant to post a bond to help care for the seized animal and prevent trial delays.  This prevents animals from having to face the stress of being boarded for a long time.
