Marion County Board of County Commissioners has established an animal abuser registry, otherwise known as Molly’s Law.

Molly’s Law requires any offender convicted of an animal abuse crime as defined in Marion County Code, Chapter 4, Section 4-15 to be placed on the animal abuser registry. This database will allow citizens, pet sellers, and rescues to verify that they are not placing and animal with an animal abuser.

This registry also includes the list of persons enjoined from possessing animals. This list, created by Marion County Board of County Commissioners, contains the names and last known addresses of persons enjoined from owning animals by a judge. Pursuant to Florida State Statute 828.073, the court may enjoin an owner from further possession or custody of animals.
