Alternattiva Demokratika has applauded the introduction of a new regulation making the micro-chipping of dogs compulsory.
Simon Galea, Spokesperson for Animal Welfare and Agriculture, said that “Alternattiva Demokrattika always believed in the urgent need for introducing such regulations. Animal Welfare always stood top in the party’s agenda. Micro-chipping of dogs was one of the proposals included in our last electoral manifesto and such an issue was also raised with the Animal Welfare Department in the past.”
Chairperson Michael Briguglio added, “AD also agrees with penalties for owners of dogs found running astray. AD takes the opportunity to thank all Animal Welfare officers for their sterling work, as was personally witnessed in a visit to the Animal Welfare Department a few months ago.”
