Animal Welfare Consultation
We have been asked to circulate details of a Government consultation on proposals to strengthen the enforcement of animal welfare legislation by;
- increasing the maximum available penalties for certain animal cruelty offences (including offences involving attacks on service animals);
- enabling secondary legislation to be made that will allow Fixed Penalty Notices to be used in relation to lesser animal welfare offences; and
- making it easier for approved bodies to quickly make the best arrangements for animals after they have been taken into possession to protect their welfare.
