Pet law put to public consultation

Pet law put to public consultation

New legislation on pet ownership and the rights of stray animals that has been put to public consultation seeks to make animal abuse a felony and to introduce a more comprehensive supervisory framework. 

According to the draft law presented by the Interior Ministry, representatives from the Union of Municipalities and Communities (KEDE), the Greek Ombudsman and selected animal rights organizations will be responsible for ensuring that the new laws are upheld.
