HB4191 IMMUNITY DOG AND CAT LOCKED CAR AMENDMENT #2
MUST CALL BEFORE APRIL 10  

We find the following issues with HB4191 Amendment #2:

** The bill does not require the person who breaks into the vehicle to either render first aid to the presumably distressed animal, nor does it require the animal to be brought to a licensed veterinarian for immediate emergency care.

** This bill renders greater civil immunity to a citizen than for law enforcement personnel.

** There is no requirement for the concerned citizen to locate the vehicle owner in a store or wherever the vehicle is parked, in order to free the animal without the necessity of property damage.

** An animal owner has no recourse should their animal escape and be injured or killed after the concerned citizen breaks into the vehicle.

** The animal owner may be held responsible if their animal bites or otherwise injures the concerned citizen who is breaking into the vehicle.

** The bill does not address the differences in various dog breeds who can easily withstand hot or cold temperatures based on their breed characteristics and hair coat.

Provides that a person is immune from criminal liability for criminal damage to property and criminal trespass to vehicles resulting from his or her forcible entry into a vehicle and from civil liability for property damage if the person: determines the vehicle is locked or there is otherwise no reasonable method for the dog or cat to exit the vehicle; has a good faith belief that forcible entry into the vehicle is necessary because the dog or cat is in imminent danger of suffering harm if not immediately removed from the vehicle, and based upon the circumstances known to the person at the time, the belief is a reasonable one; has made a good faith effort to contact a 9-1-1 emergency telephone system operator, law enforcement, or the fire department, and if contact is not possible prior to forcibly entering the vehicle, the person makes contact as soon as possible after forcibly entering the vehicle; makes a good a faith effort to place a notice on the vehicle's windshield with the person's contact information, the reason entry was made, the location of the dog or cat, and the fact that authorities have been notified; remains with the dog or cat in a safe location until law enforcement or emergency responders arrive; and uses no more force than necessary to enter the vehicle to remove the dog or cat. Effective immediately.


HB4221CHARITY-ANIMAL RIGHTS (MEIER C) **MONITOR**

HB4251COUNTY ANIMAL POPULATION FUND (BENNETT T) **MONITOR**
Amends the Animal Control Act. Provides that excess funds for the registration and microchipping of dogs and cats placed in the county animal population control fund may be transferred to the county treasury by a majority vote of the county board.


HB4380 DOG OR CAT-EXTREME WEATHER (SKILLICORN A)   **OPPOSE**
Amends the Humane Care for Animals Act. Provides that no owner of a dog or cat that is a companion animal may expose the dog or cat in a manner that places the dog or cat in a life-threatening situation for a prolonged period of time in extreme heat of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or above or cold conditions of 20 degrees Fahrenheit or below that could: (1) result in injury to or death of the animal; or (2) result in hypothermia, hyperthermia, frostbite, or similar condition as diagnosed by a doctor of veterinary medicine.

The Illinois Federation of Dog Clubs and Owners (IFDCO) is a dedicated group of dog fanciers from many professions who strive to keep the animal related laws of Illinois fair and reasonable. HB4380 seeks to set specific temperature limits for dogs without taking into consideration that many dogs that are used for working, hunting, guarding or who are simply pets can be acclimated to large temperature ranges without illness or injury.

* Illinois law is consistently rated the best in the nation for our dog protection laws. Adding arbitrary temperature maximums and minimums will do nothing to protect dogs from harm that is not already addressed current law. 

* Defining a specific temperature range will allow dogs that cannot tolerate these temperatures the possibility of harm by owners who will still be in compliance with the law, which may end up doing more harm.

* Dogs that are used for field trials, game hunting and herding or guarding livestock are well acclimated to outside temperatures. In 2016 AKC held 166 performance events in Illinois with over 6300 entries. These dogs are conditioned and perform what they were bred to do with no problem in inclement weather conditions.

* This bill may severely impact the ability of trainers and owners of hunting, guarding and search and rescue dogs to be able to perform their duties in all weather conditions. These dogs can be injured or die if they are not properly acclimated to all weather conditions when they are expected to work.

* There are many breeds of dogs that are bred to not only withstand cold weather but thrive in it. These dogs have naturally insulated double coats that protect them. Many Artic, spitz, guard and herding breeds all have this ability bred into them for centuries. Other short coated breeds thrive in hot weather like those that were bred to hunt and guard in Africa and other countries where higher temperatures are common.

HB5477 ANIMAL SHELTER-TRANSFER REPORT (OLSEN D) 
PLEASE CALL THE HOUSE AGRICULTURE COMMITTEE TO SUPPORT HB5477 SHELTER REPORTING 
MUST CALL BEFORE MONDAY APRIL 8th VOTE YES on HOUSE BILL 5477

** Illinois has no true idea of how many thousands of animals are being brought into Illinois from out of state or out of the country to fill shelters in need of place-able animals.
** These imported animals are now known to carry parasites and diseases that have been transferred to local animals and to humans. The canine flu epidemic has been traced to dogs brought in from out of the country, which has resulted in thousands of sick dogs in the US, and many dogs died from the disease.
** Shelters and rescue groups need to be responsible for reporting where these animals originated should a new disease outbreak occur. Local veterinarians who may have never seen certain parasites or diseases would be better able to diagnose and treat affected animals if they know where that animal was from originally.
** Diseases that have been well controlled under current laws are now resurfacing due to imported animals. Parvo virus, a highly contagious organism, has been more frequently reported in Illinois, with puppies dying from the disease. Brucellocis, which can be transmitted to humans, has also been reported in these transferred animals.
** The bill will allow the Department of Agriculture and organizations who track animal and human disease statistics to track known problems and discover any new issues associated with the importation of animals into Illinois.

HB5667 ANIMAL ABUSE REGISTRY (WINGER C)

LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT CALL TO OPPOSE HB5667 ANIMAL ABUSE REGISTRY

PLEASE CALL THE HOUSE JUDICIARY - CRIMINAL COMMITTEE TO OPPOSE HB5667 ANIMAL
ABUSE REGISTRY MUST CALL BEFORE 12:00 PM MONDAY APRIL 9th  

** Animal abuse cases comprise less than 1% of all convictions in Illinois. The time, effort and money required to create and maintain the registry is not warranted simply due to the small number of abuse cases.

** The State of Illinois does not maintain public databases for convicted child abusers, domestic abusers, burglars or drug traffickers, all of which comprise a much greater percentage of felony convictions in Illinois.

** The bill lacks definition of psychiatric or physiological testing required to be removed from the registry. No such testing exists, nor will psychiatrists and psychologists accept liability without clearly defined testing procedures.

** The $50 annual registry fee will not cover the cost to set up and maintain a registry. Money would be better spent hiring additional Illinois Department of Agriculture (DOA) Inspectors to allow better enforcement of Illinois humane care laws.

** This bill creates felony restrictions upon the families of anyone who is required to register in that they cannot live with any companion animal.
