Emily Ramsey started this petition to Tennessee State House and

The Tennessee General Assembly is considering SB0310 and HB0361 which,

"permits officers of governmental animal control agencies to enter abandoned property and dwellings to rescue any non-livestock animal contained therein."

HB0361 is being considered for passing if amended. The amendment states,

"An officer of a governmental animal control agency may enter a property or dwelling and rescue any abandoned non-livestock animal therein, if the entry is pursuant to: (1) A valid search warrant; (2) A judicially recognized exception to the warrant requirement; or (3) The property owner's consent.

This petition is a call to legislators, animal advocacy groups, and citizens to consider the amendment to the bill. The amendment of requiring a warrant and consent would make the legislation a more ethical and legal pursuit of rescuing animals.
