Georgia to Provide Reimbursement of Local Impoundment Expenses

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has signed into law House Bill 574 which will establish a Local Government Companion Animal Trust Fund of up to $200,000 for reimbursing local governments for expenses related to impounding more than 29 dogs or cats or more than 9 equines and providing for their care. The fund will be financed by annual license fees for wholesale and retail pet dealers.
