     been served notice of the contents of the order, pursuant to the Illinois Domestic Violence Act of 1986 or any substantially similar statute of another state, tribe or United States territory, or otherwise has acquired actual knowledge of the contents of the order.
    An order of protection issued by a state, tribal or territorial court related to domestic or family violence shall be deemed valid if the issuing court had jurisdiction over the parties and matter under the law of the state, tribe or territory.

The court shall impose a minimum penalty of 24 hours imprisonment for defendant's second or subsequent violation of any order of protection; unless the court explicitly finds that an increased penalty or such period of imprisonment would be manifestly unjust. In addition to any other penalties, the court may order the defendant to pay a fine as authorized under Section 5‑9‑1 of the Unified Code of Corrections or to make restitution to the victim under Section 5‑5‑6 of the Unified Code of Corrections. In addition to any other penalties, including those imposed by Section 5‑9‑1.5 of the Unified Code of Corrections, the court shall impose an additional fine of $20 as authorized by Section 5‑9‑1.11 of the Unified Code of Corrections upon any person convicted of or placed on supervision for a violation of this Section.

        (1) an unspayed or unneutered dog or puppy older than
     12 weeks of age; or

     or neutered, any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.

This subsection (d) is not applicable to any dog that has been determined to be a vicious dog under Section 15 of the Animal Control Act.
