Proposed KY Bill To Allow Vets To Report Animal Abuse

Kentucky is currently the only state that does not allow veterinarians to report suspected animal abuse without the permission from the owner.

(Frankfort, Ky.) - A proposed bill could pull Kentucky in line with the rest of the United States when it comes to animal abuse. 

Kentucky is the only state that does not allow veterinarians to report animal abuse without the permission from the owner. 

Senate Bill 21 would change this. 

The bill reads, “A veterinarian making a report in good faith under this section shall be immune from liability arising from the report.”

This was introduced to the Senate in January and was reported in favor to pass after the first reading.
