S.F. 2020/S.F. 2021/H.F. 2023: Increasing Penalties for Animal Neglect [2014]

Born Free USA Position: SUPPORT

Update (February 2014): Failed to advance before the deadline, meaning that this bill is dead.

Bill Description:
Would increase the penalties for animal neglect and animal torture.

Increased penalties would provide increased deterrents, better tools for county attorneys to use when charging cases, and bring animal abuse penalties in Iowa more in line with neighboring states. The bills were supported by the Iowa County Attorneys Association.

Take Action:
Iowa residents, contact your state legislators and tell them that you would like to see this legislation reintroduced in 2015!
