PENALTIES FOR PROTECTION OF ANIMALS

At last it would seem we can see a better treatment for animals.

It would be wise to report any incidence you may witness to the Guardia Civil to ensure that ill treatment of animals is reduced to a
minimum.

Producing false information and documents to or withholding information from the Authorities can be subject to fines as well as closure of premises, businesses related to animals and prohibition from having animals.

Serious infractions as result of ill treatment, crippling or death of an animal can be subject to a fine of up to 30,000€. Included in this is the abandoning of animals, using animals for fights, the misuse of animals to train others, and several other similarly serious
offences.

A lesser fine of up to 2000€ can be imposed for not vaccinating animals as required by law, not looking after animals correctly, not providing the necessary veterinary help, owning non registered animals, selling animals without a licence and many other similar offences, which may appear to be light.

A full list of the offences listed and respective fines is available from the editor@webexpressguide.com
