Upon application for an equine rescue facility license, the
commissioner shall notify the county humane officer or animal
control officer in the county where the equine rescue facility is
located, who shall inspect the facility prior to issuance of an
equine rescue facility license and, thereafter, not less than twice
annually. If the county does not have a humane officer or animal
control officer, the sheriff of that county is responsible for
inspections of equine rescue facilities in the county as set forth
in this section.
