CANCUN, Q.R. – A new regulation has been completed that will provide support to officials to help deal with the mistreatment of animals.
The new regulations will be part of the state’s Periódico Oficial (Official Journal) that will provide more support to Perrera Municipal to help with the protection of animals. The regulations, Protección y Bienestar Animal (Protection and Animal Welfare) is set for publication in Cancun.
Rafael Durán Cacho, an alderman of Benito Juárez says, “Alderman Antonio Cervera has already materialized all the steps to take the official regulation of Animal Protection and Welfare forward (…) and that city hall, with other recognized associations and people of veterinary colleges, spent the past year finalizing the new regulations which are ready to be published in the state’s Periódico Oficial.
Part of the new regulations will include more municipal resources for animal control as well as clinic inspections. Durán Cacho noted that, “There are many veterinarians who provide services such as dog grooming and vaccinations, and in some cases sterilizations. Those establishments are going to be inspected, because apparently we have doctors who do not correctly sterilize animals and others who give expired drugs.”
Although the alderman would not provide a figure, last year’s records of the Association of Veterinarians in Benito Juarez showed there were about 30,000 dogs living on Cancun streets.
He also added that with the new Animal Protection Act of Quintana Roo, the goal is to provide more animal protection at a legal level because sanctions do not always have an effect. Having a legal framework will allow them to perform stakeouts to ensure that the dogs are at home, that they have food and fresh water and an ideal place for their wellness.
The new Animal Protection Act of Quintana Roo is a joint project with the Ministry of Public Security and local citizens.
