§ 10-103.1. Kennels. 13
(1) All Kennels. Any person operating a kennel of any kind shall comply with Section 10-114 of this Code. The Animal Control Agency may inspect any kennel for compliance with Section 10-114, and may, where a violation is found, order the kennel to cease operations until such time as all violations have been remedied.
(2) Dog Law Kennels. Any person operating a Dog Law kennel shall comply with all provisions of the Dog Law, including maintenance of any license required thereunder. The Animal Control Agency may inspect any Dog Law kennel for compliance with Section 207 of the Dog Law ("Requirements for kennels"), and may, where violations of Section 207 are found, order the kennel to cease operations until such time as all violations have been remedied. All violations of the Dog Law shall be reported to appropriate authorities.
(3) Cease Operations Orders. A cease operations order under this Section may contain such terms as will permit the lawful and humane maintenance of animals sheltered in the kennel while the order is in effect and violations are remedied. A cease operations order under this Section shall not be imposed in a manner that contradicts or is otherwise inconsistent with any action by the Secretary of Agriculture under the Dog Law with respect to the same violation or violations for which the cease operations order was imposed.
(4) Registration. Any person operating a kennel of any kind shall register such kennel with the Animal Control Agency annually, providing such information, and on such form, as the Animal Control Agency shall specify. The registration fee shall be thirty dollars ($30), or such other amount as the Animal Control Agency may by regulation specify.
