Revised city dog regulation effective May 15

AFTER a long and heated debate over pet dog raising, the city passed its canine-owning regulation this afternoon. The new code will take effect on May 15.

Clauses involving the one-dog policy, license application, the ban on raising attacking dogs and certain punishments have been revised based on opinions of lawmakers and local citizens.

Under the new regulation, people living in downtown areas and new urban centers such as Lingang and Jiading can only raise one dog per household. And they have to give away the additional ones to friends or relatives or adoption agencies, except for those already owning two or more licensed dogs.

A license is required for canine owners and dogs have to be vaccinated against rabies regularly and go through annual checks. One will be fined between 200 yuan (US$22) and 1,000 yuan or have the dog taken away for breaking the regulation.

But the regulation does not detail the license fee and certain management expenses, which will be cut by half annually if the dogs received the birth control surgery.
