Should a search warrant be required to required abused animals? Andrea Conger, the Grantham NH woman who rescued 21 Chihuahuas from a home in Croydon several weeks ago, has started a petition to speed up the rescue of abused animals. The petition calls for a new law that would allow police officers or animal welfare representative to seize animals without a search warrant when there is visual or audible proof of an animal suffering inside a home or locked building on private property.
Immediate seizure currently requires an obtained warrant, issued by the District Court. Often and often there is no time. It also calls for police officers or animal welfare representatives not to be held liable for damage reasonably necessary to rescue an animal. You can view and or sign the petition by going here
