Urgent Call for enhanced Dog Laws - Animal Welfare group

Groups call on Prime Minister for enhanced dog laws: Some of the UK’s biggest animal charities, law enforcement agencies and unions on August 24 Tuesday jointly called on the leaders of the main political parties to work mutually to introduce improved and updated legislation to guard dog welfare and public safety.

The 20 groups have come together to order action against irresponsible dog owners by the Government and the provision of essential resources for those tasked with policing dog manage laws.

It comes ahead of the abstract of responses from Defra’s consultation on dog legislation which is predictable this autumn.

The consultation established more than 4,000 responses by the time it closed in June, indicating the scale of attention in the subject.

The declaration will be sent to Prime Minister David Cameron MP, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg MP and acting leader of the conflict Harriet Harman MP.

The speech says: “We believe that irresponsible dog ownership, whether it is allowing dogs to stray, be dangerously out of control or indiscriminately breeding them, causes significant problems for the safety and welfare of both humans and animals. Current legislation is proving inadequate in many cases to ensure sufficient protection.

“We believe that both the provision of sufficient resources at a local level for local authorities and the police, and updated and consolidated legislation that has a genuine preventative effect, are needed to address this problem.

“We call on the coalition Government to act and bring forward legislation that addresses these areas effectively.”
