Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Animal Welfare Act. Provides that every dog dealer and cattery operator shall provide for every dog or cat available for sale documentation that indicates that the dog or cat has been microchipped. Requires an animal shelter or animal control facility to provide information to an adopter prior to the time of adoption whether the dog or cat to be adopted was microchipped prior to being placed in the animal shelter or animal control facility. Provides that if a dog or cat turned into an animal shelter has a microchip and the primary contact or owner refuses to reclaim the cat or dog, the shelter shall contact the pet shop operator or rescue organization identified on the microchip and request they claim the dog or cat. Provides that a pet shop operator, dog dealer, or cattery operator may not obtain a dog or cat for resale or sell or offer for sale any dog or cat obtained from a person who has committed violations of certain federal laws or regulations, as tracked by the United States Department of Agriculture. Provides for certain exceptions. Requires pet shop operators to microchip all dogs and cats. Requires pet shop operators to include a disclosure that a dog or cat for sale has been microchipped. Denies home rule powers. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the amendatory Act may be referred to as the Best Practices and Uniform Standards to Ensure Consumer Protection and Safe Pets Act. In provisions requiring every dog dealer and cattery operator to provide documentation that indicates every dog or cat available for sale has been microchipped, includes that the documentation shall also indicate that the microchip has been enrolled with a searchable national database. In provisions prohibiting a pet shop operator, dog dealer, or cattery operator from obtaining a dog or cat for resale or sale if certain conditions are met, removes references to inspection reports posted on the Animal Care Information System online search tool maintained by the United States Department of Agriculture. Provides that a pet shop operator, dog dealer, or cattery operator may comply with certain provisions by obtaining the latest inspection report available from the licensed breeder or the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (rather than the Animal Care Information System) online search tool. Provides that a pet shop operator, dog dealer, or cattery operator is presumed to have acted in good faith and to have satisfied its obligation if it is determined that the licensed breeder altered or falsified the inspection report provided at the time of sale. Make other changes.
