   Sections  that  define  the violations.  Provides that certain penalty      
   provisions apply to violations concerning  animals  other  than  dogs.      
   Provides  that  the  Section  on animals in entertainment applies only      
   when the animals affected by a violation include at least  one  animal      
   that  is not a dog, and makes a reference to the corresponding Section      
   of the Criminal Code of 1961 that applies when  the  animals  affected

        Provides that the poisoning provisions of  the  Humane  Care  for      
   Animals  Act  do  not  prohibit  the  use  of  a  euthanasia drug by a      
   euthanasia agency for the purpose of animal euthanasia, provided  that      
   the  euthanasia  drug  is used by or under the direction of a licensed      
   veterinarian or certified euthanasia technician, all as defined in and      
   subject to the Humane  Euthanasia  in  Animal  Shelters  Act.   Copies
