Spain Administers New Pet Protection Laws

by Admin on February 16, 2018

The creation of the law was first proposed in 2007 to the European Convention and after a decade the law was passed on the 1st of February 2018. Communities are advised to check their legislation to make sure it complies with the new law as regional legislation’s may be different.

The law will ban the amputation of tails, ears, teeth, claws and vocal chords. Pets will no longer be used as prizes and must have the consent of parents if gifted to children under the age of 16. Spain will encourage the education of the proper breeding, training and possession of pets.

Current legal issues are discussed in the Thailand Family Law Center by Thailand family lawyers. 

The breeding of pets will be heavily regulated and surgical removal on pets without medical purposed are banned. The law will also include that only a certified veterinarian or “competent person” may end the suffering of an animal if a professional cannot be immediately reached.
