Nathan Deal signed Senate Bill 356 which could require a person to pay for their animals’ care if they have their animal seized.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, animal advocates immediately cheered from this signing.

Debra Berger, the Georgia state director for The Humane Society of the United States, was thrilled by this passing focusing on the financial burden it is to have to care for all the animals that are abused.

“We congratulate all our partners in passing this important law to help put the financial burden of caring for abused animals on the abuser, rather than on the taxpayer,” Berger told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
