ANIMAL "GOOD SAMARITANS" PROTECTED FROM LIABILITY
House Bill 5076, recently signed into law, protects people who assist animals during emergencies. The bill provides immunity from civil liability, to any person, including a licensed veterinarian, who in good faith and without fee, provides emergency care or treatment to an injured animal or an animal separated from its owner due to an emergency of disaster. Numerous other states have similar provisions in place. This takes effect immediately.
