Legislation

 

At first, we need to following amendments to existing legislation:

  • Remove all statutes of limitation for offences constituting infringements to animal welfare laws;
  • Appoint a full-time magistrate to swiftly handle cases of animal cruelty, and put a halt to the rejection of administrative animal cruelty offences;
  • An immediate ban on the slaughter of animals without stunning and more animal-friendly rules for the slaughter of animals;
  • Introduce a new rule requiring a certificate of competence prior to ownership of a companion animal;
  • Make it compulsory for all vets to carry out ownership checks and verify the presence of a microchip during the first visit of each new patient.
