  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 2 of section 374 of the agriculture and markets
law,  as  amended by chapter 449 of the laws of 2010, is amended to read
as follows:
  2. In the absence of such findings or certification, a  duly  incorpo-
rated  humane society, a duly incorporated society for the prevention of
cruelty to animals, or any pound maintained  by  or  under  contract  or
agreement  with  any  county,  city, town or village may after five days
make available for adoption or have  humanely  destroyed  in  accordance
with  the  provisions  of this section [and subject to subdivisions six,
eight and nine of section one hundred eighteen  of  this  chapter],  any
animal  of  which  possession  is taken as provided for in the preceding
section, unless the same is earlier redeemed  by  its  owner;  PROVIDED,
HOWEVER, UPON AN EXAMINATION AND FINDING BY A LICENSED VETERINARIAN THAT
A  CAT IS HEALTHY AND SUCH CAT DOES NOT HAVE A COLLAR, TAGS OR MICROCHIP
THAT IDENTIFIES ITS OWNER, SUCH CAT MAY BE MADE AVAILABLE  FOR  ADOPTION
AFTER THREE DAYS.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
have become a law; provided, however, that  effective  immediately,  the
addition,  amendment  and/or  repeal of any rule or regulation necessary
for the implementation of this act on its effective date are  authorized
and directed to be made and completed on or before such effective date.
