AB 1781
The Safe Transportation of Dogs and Cats Act
February 4, 2022

Assembly Bill AB 1781 requires mobile or traveling housing facilities, such as animal control vehicles, to transportation of dogs and cats in such a manner that conditions do not endanger the health or well-being of the animal due to extreme temperatures or lack or food or water. Temperatures in California range from below freezing to well over 100 degrees. These extreme temperatures put animals being transported inside vehicles at risk of severe injury or death.
