Require 48 hours’ notice before a ‘dangerous dog’ can be destroyed
Too many people risk losing their beloved family dog by not knowing their rights at the time their dog is seized. The law should be changed so that dog owners are given 48 hours’ notice before their dog can be destroyed.
May dog owners may not know their rights when the police determine a dog is a prohibited breed. This can lead to owners feeling scared or intimidated into signing over their dog to be destroyed.
A 48 hour period needs to be in place from the moment their dog is seized under the Dangerous Dogs Act before destruction can take place.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
