How does a New York Manager Animal Pound or Shelter Bond work?

This bond is not an insurance. It is an extension of credit provided by the Surety to the Principal (manager of animal pound or shelter).

The Surety will assure the performance of the Principal to the New York Commissioner of Agriculture and Markets. The Principal is primarily responsible for the fulfillment of the obligations required. If the Principal fails to do any of the bonded obligations, the Obligee (People of the State of New York) can file a bond claim.

The claim will first be verified by the Surety before it is settled. Once the Surety has settled the claim, the Principal will reimburse the Surety for the payments made.
