Georgia Department of Agriculture – Equine Health
The equine health section is responsible for enforcing the Humane Care for Equines Act, the Equine Act of 1969 and excerpts of the Animal Protection Act. Enforcement of these laws is achieved through the inspection of equine sales, abuse complaints, stables and events. They also manage the Equine Infectious Anemia Control Program.
The need for protecting the welfare of equine prompted the passing of the Humane Care for Equines Act in 1992, which requires that all equine are provided with adequate food and water, and are treated and cared for in a humane manner. The Act provides for inspections, impoundment, care,and disposition. Authority is granted for injunctions, restraining orders, and monetary penalties as required to achieve enforcement.
