Petition No 1646/2014 by Antonia Morral Agusti (Spanish) on EU regulation on pet protection
Summary of petition:
The petitioner requests the adoption of a EU regulation on pet protection. She acknowledges that part of the competences belong to Member States and in the Spanish case, to the different regions. However, she reminds that the Directive 2010/63/EU is also applicable to pets. In particular she asks for an enforcement of veterinary controls regarding animals coming from non EU members, since several cases of dogs with hydrophobia coming from Maghreb have taken place recently. Furthermore, she considers that both legal measures and advertisement campaigns on vaccination, abandonment, sterilization and making chips compulsory could be made at European level.
