Chulalongkorn University has held a seminar on the possible legal requirement for pets to be registered at a cost of 450 baht per animal after the Livestock Department decided to stall the regulation due to public resistance.
Editor-in-Chief of Naew Na newspaper, Chalermchai Yodmalai , remarked that a majority of the public agrees with the draft Anti-Animal Cruelty and Animal Welfare Act and its requirement for pets to be registered with district administrations, but are unsure about the cost of 450 baht per animal and its subsequent benefits.
Deputy Director-General of the Livestock Department, Somchuan Rattanamangalanont , indicated the draft act has been sent for reconsideration but noted it will still seek to limit the proliferation of animals. He explained that, if the discussed rule were to be implemented, it would categorize animal owners into three segments, breeding farms, the general public and animal shelters.
The first year of registration might see fees waived or discounts might be provided for neutered and spayed animals. Homes being used as animal shelters would have to register with their district office and would receive free assistance, including vaccinations and neutering. Pets that have already been implanted with tracking chips by the state would be exempt from the registration.
The deputy director-general added that the 450 baht for registration will be reconsidered to fit public needs better.Facebook.
