HB17-1228 - Pet Animal Care Technology Platform Regulation

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning licensing exemptions related to pet animal facilities, including those utilizing technology in their business models.

The bill clarifies that the 'Pet Animal Care and Facilities Act' (PACFA) does not apply to the boarding or pet handling of 3 or less pet animals. The bill further clarifies that a pet animal care technology platform is not a 'pet animal facility' as defined in PACFA and thus exempts those businesses from the licensing requirements for pet animal care facilities.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
