Iowa House Bill 170 would provide administrative, civil, and criminal immunity to veterinarians in investigations or proceedings involving the mistreatment of animals when cooperating with a peace officer to provide the officer with information related to another person’s mistreatment of an animal, cooperating with a local authority to rescue a threatened animal, participating in the disposition of a court order, or providing evidence relating to another person’s conduct that would constitute an offense punishable as a misdemeanor or felony.
