Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Animal Welfare Act. Provides that an animal control facility may not release any animal to an individual representing an animal shelter, unless the individual is a representative of a not-for-profit, out-of-State organization and the animal is being transferred out of the State of Illinois. Further provides that no animal shelter may impound or accept a stray dog or cat, unless such animal is released to the animal control facility or law enforcement officer with jurisdiction the next business day and that any animal shelter that impounds or accepts a stray dog or cat and does not transfer the animal to the local animal control or law enforcement officer by the next business day shall be in violation of the Act and shall be fined. Prohibits any representative of an animal shelter from entering upon private property and removing an animal without a search warrant or court order. Provides that an animal shelter that accepts animals from animal shelters or animal control facilities from out of state must require a certificate of veterinary inspection from the state where the animal originates and provides certain vaccination requirements. Permits animal shelters and animal control facilities to enter into mutual agreements for the purposes of animal control, boarding, holding, or other services, provided that the agreement requires the parties to adhere to the provisions of the Animal Control Act, the Humane Euthanasia in Animal Shelters Act, and the Humane Care for Animals Act. In provisions regarding grounds for discipline, provides that, if the Illinois Department of Agriculture revokes a license under the Act at an administrative hearing, the licensee shall be prohibited from applying for or obtaining a license under the Act for a minimum of 3 years after the revocation. Amends the Humane Care for Animals Act. Provides that persons designated as human investigators shall notify local law enforcement or the local animal control agency prior to conducting an investigation into a complaint within the jurisdiction of such law enforcement or animal control agency. Further provides that persons designated as a humane investigator may have his or her approval suspended or revoked by the Department if he or she engages in certain conduct and that the animal shelter or humane society sponsoring a person designated as a humane investigator shall be fined and is subject to having its license suspended or revoked if the person is found to have committed an infraction in an administrative hearing by the Department.
