Federation Council member Alexander Bashkin proposed to provide for fines in the legislation for owners who throw dogs or cats out into the street. He also noted the importance of registering pets.
“It is necessary to introduce compulsory registration of pets and their microchipping to identify a dog and its owner on the street, as well as serious fines for such would-be owners,” said the senator to RIA Novosti.
The collected fines should be directed to the capture of stray animals and their maintenance, he said.
On March 29, the legislative assembly of the Chelyabinsk region submitted to the State Duma a bill on the compulsory registration of pets.
At the end of 2018, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on the responsible treatment of animals, which is designed to address the challenges of protecting animals, as well as to promote the observance of the principles of humanity in their relation.
