Senate Bill 32 by State Senator Kay Kirkpatrick (R-Marietta) passed out of the Special Judiciary Committee, according to the AJC.

When Georgia changed its “good Samaritan” law in 2015 to protect people who damage cars to rescue children who have been left behind in hot weather from being sued, animal lovers saw an opportunity.

Under Senate Bill 32, sponsored by Marietta Republican state Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, anyone who damages a car to save an animal, to avoid being sued, would be required to call 911 or animal control and wait for emergency responders to arrive.

The legislation is needed, Georgia Humane Society Director Debra Berger said. Law enforcement officers sometimes contact her organization, she said, because they don’t know what they can do when they come across a dog in a hot car.

“We would hope that by raising this issue that a law has been passed we’re going to prevent the need for these rescues,” Berger said. “Many people who leave their pets in cars simply don’t think about it.”

Dandre PAWS

D’Andre is a young male Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

D’Andre makes being an excellent good boy seem so easy. The staff love him. He’s a breeze to take care off. We found him at a metro county animal shelter and were drawn to his gentle demeanor. He’s very attentive to his human friends and smart and playful without ever being too much. If you want to play, wonderful. If you want to just chill on the couch, that’s fine, too. He follows your lead. D’Andre seems comfortable with other dogs, but we’ve not had time to evaluate his play skills one-on-one with another dog. He’s not leash-reactive and walks nicely and politely beside you, grateful to be out in the fresh air.

D’Andre seems crate-trained, which is a big plus right out of the gate. His one challenge is that, like many shelter dogs, D’Andre hasn’t always known where his next meal was coming from, or if he’d even have a meal. So, he sometimes be protective of his food, fearing you will take it away from him. This is a behavior that is quite common and can typically be worked out with a good feeding routine. But, because he’s still learning to be comfortable about sharing food, we would like D’Andre to go to an adopter who doesn’t have young children in the home, so there will be no feeding time misunderstandings. This dog is a dream. He’s so good.

Judd PAWS

Judd is a male Boxer who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Is it a Boxer? Is it a teddy bear? It’s both – it’s Judd! This 4 yr old gentleman is an all-rounder. You like road trips? Judd will make himself comfortable on your backseat and chill. You like hiking? He does it all, rivers, mountain and forests. He’ll use every opportunity to show off his perfect smellvestigation skills and demonstrate his mellow and laid back personality. You’re eating right in front of him? He’ll leave you your personal space and relies on his Jedi-Boxer mind tricks to conjure the food he so longingly gazes at. He gets along with everyone, walks nicely on the leash and is just the bestest boy. Grab your family, pets, friends and meet this cool, calm and collected hunk at the shelter.

Electrolyte PAWS

Electrolyte is a young male Rhodesian Ridgeback mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Infuse your life with Electrolyte and discover the missing ingredient in your family! This medium sized ridgeback mix is slightly bashful in the beginning but warms up quickly to new faces. Inquisitive and curious, he loves smelling all the smells and does so with adorable grunting noises. Electrolyte is playful and dynamic, and his full-body wiggles aka tail wags and funny bunny hops will win you over in no time. At 1.5 years old, he is enthusiastic but very polite about it and will look for your approval every time you make eye-contact. If you’re looking for a faithful companion and energetic workout buddy, you’ve found your perfect match. He seems to get along well with other dogs, so bring your own pups to see if they’ll like him as much as we do.

Those looking for a new pet will be able to take home a dog or cat for $2.14, a significant reduction from the regular $45 adoption fee for dogs and the $20 cat fee.

In addition to the discounted prices, on Saturday, the shelter will have gifts for newly-adopted animals, as well as a photo backdrop to capture “joyful Valentine moments (with) these pets as they depart to their forever homes,” the shelter said in a news release.

“Adopting is a gift for both the pet and your Valentine,” said Alan Davis, manager of the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division. “Giving a home to a shelter pet is a memorable gift from the heart.”

Adopters can usually take their new pet home on the same day of adoption upon completion of paperwork and adoption counseling. All pets adopted from Gwinnett County Animal Welfare are spayed or neutered, have a microchip and are vaccinated.

State Senator Kay Kirkpatrick (R-Cobb) has introduced “good samaritan” legislation, according to the AJC.

State Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, R-Marietta, has proposed an amendment, Senate Bill 32, that would protect citizens from a lawsuit if they damage a vehicle to rescue an animal in danger.

She said the idea came out of the Senate committee studying whether laws were needed to regulate service or support animals. Kirkpatrick said she has a 14-year-old golden doodle therapy dog named Dobie, “so they put me on that committee.”

As she looked into the current protections for animals, “I started noticing that there was nothing in there for someone trying to rescue an animal in distress.”

Kirkpatrick said she is adding language to an existing law protecting those who rescue children from cars. It was passed in the wake of the high-profile death of 22-month-old Cooper Harris, who was killed by his father Justin Ross Harris in a hot car in Cobb County during 2015. Harris was sentenced to life without parole.

In her bill, anyone who breaks a window to rescue an animal in distress must also call 911 to be immune from civil liability.
