Pennsylvania state dog kennel owners must cooperate with a new law titled HB 2525. In the event of any dogs being confiscated and an administrative appeal being filed caused by violations of the Commonwealth’s animal cruelty laws, dog kennels have to post a surety bond. The size of the bond is based on the amount of dogs removed and must be equal to the expected cost of transport, care and nourishment for 31 days while the dogs are impounded. HB 2525 authorizes a cash deposit equal to 10% of the required bond amount.
