Bond/Cost of Care/Restitution

Bond/Cost of Care/Restitution

 

When local authorities must provide care to maintain animals until the final disposition, the prosecutor may request the court to require defendants to post a bond or security to compensate agencies while the case is being prosecuted (although there is no specific law in place in GA for this, it does not hurt to ask a judge for a defendant to post a bond for the cost of care of an animal(s)).

If that request is not granted be sure to ask the prosecutor to request restitution on the back end for the cost of care in addition to any other restitution that should be paid for medical costs, boarding, etc.
