Requirements for Household Pets

Regarding 22VAC40-131-190, S.   “The applicant shall maintain documentation that household pets receive tests, inoculations, and licenses as required by law”.

Referencing Code of Virginia sections 3.2-6521 – 6533. License laws vary by locality; this puts an unrealistic demand on child placing agencies to verify that pets have been licensed; this has no bearing on safety of home; recommend language to read “test and inoculations as required by law”.
