No person shall abandon any animal, abandonment consisting of: leaving an animal for a period in excess of 24 hours, without providing for someone to feed, water and check on the animal's condition, or leaving an animal by the roadside or other area, or leaving an animal on either public or private property without the property owner's consent. In the event that an animal is found so abandoned, such animal may be taken by a Glasgow-Barren County Animal Control Officer or peace officer and impounded at Barren River Animal Welfare Association, and there confined in a humane manner. Such animal, if taken from private property, shall be kept for not less than the prescribed period in accordance with the procedures set forth in the impounding section. In the event that an animal is so abandoned, the owner or keeper, if any, whom he has charged with the animal's care, shall be subject to a citation for violation of KRS 257.100(4).
