In the revised draft, the penalty criteria for those who fail to apply for the registration of dogs remain unchanged, as follows: A fine of 5,000 yuan per dog shall be imposed on the unit and 2,000 yuan per dog shall be imposed on the individual; if they refuse to register, the dogs shall be confiscated.
What has changed is that the time limit for ordering registration has changed from within three days to on-site processing. Previous regulations stipulated that: If a dog is not registered, the public security organ shall seize the dog and order it to apply for registration within three days, and may impose a fine of 5,000 yuan per dog on the unit and 2,000 yuan per dog on the individual; if it fails to apply for a replacement within the time limit, the dog shall be confiscated.
The revised draft said: if the dog registration is not applied for, the public security organ shall order the dog to register on the spot, impose a fine of 5000 yuan on each dog on the unit and 2000 yuan on each dog on the individual; if the dog refuses to register, the dog shall be confiscated.
A fine of 10,000 yuan for injuring a dog without using a dog rope
The revised draft adds penalties for injuries caused by dogs without canine ropes: If dogs are carried out outdoors without being led by canine ropes or failing to comply with other provisions of this Regulation, resulting in injuries to others, the public security organ may confiscate the dogs and impose a fine of 10,000 yuan on the dog owners. If a dog keeper lets a dog intimidate others or drives a dog to harm others, the public security organ shall punish him in accordance with the Law of the Peoples Republic of China on Administrative Penalties for Public Security.
Dog owners are required to record and report the property.
Punishment provisions have been added to property service enterprises: If the property service enterprises fail to record and report the dog owners in the property management area, they shall be warned by the public security organs and may also be fined not less than 2,000 yuan but not more than 5,000 yuan.
In the previous regulations, the requirements for property service enterprises were as follows: Property service enterprises should carry out propaganda of keeping dogs legally and civilized in their residential areas; stop illegal dog raising and report it to the relevant administrative departments, without stipulating penalty standards.
Dog registration fee levy standard unchanged
In the previous survey on the status of dog registration in Nandu, besides the 1970 questionnaires, nearly 300 specific opinions were received from dog owners. Among them, the most frequently mentioned ones were the directions of dog registration fees, no service after payment and whether or not to disclose expenses which became the biggest complaints and urgent voices of dog owners.
Personal dog ownership is still limited to one dog per household
Regarding the number of dogs that many people are concerned about, the revised draft still retains the number limit of one dog per household: One dog per household should be strictly regulated for individual dogs in the area. If the number of dogs exceeds the prescribed number, the public security organ shall confiscate the overbred dogs and impose a fine of 2,000 yuan for each overbred dog.
Refinement of the Daily Public Security Inspection System
The revised draft stipulates this in four paragraphs, including focusing on the supervision and inspection of places where complaints are concentrated, focusing on the supervision of those who do not register their dogs, and reporting the management and enforcement of dogs to the society every year.
Specifically, the public security organs, in conjunction with other departments responsible for the management of dog-keeping, shall conduct quarterly supervision and inspection on residential districts, public places and dog-handling places where reports and complaints of illegal dog-keeping are more frequent.
Public security organs and other departments responsible for the management of dog-keeping shall list the persons who are not allowed to register for dog-keeping as stipulated in these Regulations, as well as the units and individuals who have been subjected to more than one administrative punishment for violating these Regulations in the previous year as key supervisory lists, conduct regular spot checks, and conduct propaganda and education on dog-keeping and civilized dog-raising according to law.
Municipal public security organs shall make public to the public in the first quarter of each year the report on the management and enforcement of dog raising in the whole city in the previous year. Other departments responsible for the management of dogs shall submit to the public security organs at the same level data of the administrative law enforcement inspection and the number of administrative penalties of dogs in the previous year to the public security organs at the same level in January of each year.
Ways to give opinions:
For the revised draft, the public can make comments and suggestions by mail, fax or e-mail. The deadline for soliciting opinions is October 30, 2019.
Where will the ten million yuan management fee be spent? Dog breeder: Why dont I get a certificate?
In the previous survey on the status of dog registration in Nandu, besides the 1970 questionnaires, nearly 300 specific opinions were received from dog owners. Among them, the highest rate of mention was the direction of dog registration fees, no service after payment and whether to disclose expenses became the biggest dissatisfaction and urgent voice of dog owners.
According to Guangzhou Public Security, in 2017 and 2018, the total revenue of dog management fees was 116.458 million yuan, and the actual expenditure at the municipal level was 6.797 million yuan. It was mainly used for the development, maintenance and upgrading of dog information management system, the daily operation of the city dog laboratory, the cost of dog registration certificates, publicity and education and training fees, and the related expenditures of dog accommodation, rescue, disposal and sanitation.
The remaining 48461,000 yuan is totally divided into the financial departments of each district, which are budgeted and used by the district governments, streets and functional departments. It is mainly used for entrusting the registration of dogs, publicity and training, professional team formation, and related expenditures for dog shelter, rescue, disposal and sanitation.
Nandu launched a questionnaire for this purpose, mainly taking the majority of dog owners as the object of investigation, and conducted online questionnaire distribution. The survey results showed that nearly 70% of the respondents registered their dogs and 60% of them registered online. Nearly 80% of the respondents believed that the lack of services was the primary cause of non-registration.
However, it can be seen from the opinions of dog owners that the specific use of management fees is still unclear and the effect is not obvious. This year, according to the current number of more than 25,000 registered, this years management fee revenue will exceed 10 million yuan (the first registration of 500 yuan, renewal of 300 yuan per year). Where the money is spent is a common concern of dog owners. It is also a concern of more dog owners who are waiting and waiting for certification. It may even affect their decision-making.
I walk my dog on the balcony
Miss Yi, who lives in Panyu, has a Golden Hair and two Schnauzers. All three babies are old guys over 10 years old. Miss Yi raised them, the longest two for nearly 12 years, one hand and one foot to grow up (Cantonese, raised), and the other Chenery was adopted four years ago.
As a veteran dog owner, Miss Yi has not been registered as a dog owner.
A friend is engaged in animal protection work abroad. She told me that a fee should also be paid for registering animals raised abroad. But correspondingly, there will be matching services, Ms. Yi said in Canada and Australia, dogs can enjoymedical insuranceafter registration, in case they lose, there will also be departments to accept and help search for dogs. Comparatively speaking, at present, many domestic regulations on dog raising have only obligations but no guarantee for dog owners.
Although it has been entangled, it is feared that the dog will be confiscated because of the absence of a dog licence. But finally, considering that the three dogs are old, usually only in their own 30 square meters balcony activities most of the time, the probability of going out is low, the probability of being checked is low, Miss Yi is confident not to tag the dog.
Refusal to renew Certificate in 2010
Aunt Zhongs sausage dog was initially certified. In 2010, before Guangzhou hosted the Asian Games, the city advocated civilized dog raising, and the Guangzhou Dog Raising Regulations began to be implemented in January 2009. Aunt Zhong is very disciplined. In 2010, she took her dog to the pet hospital for registration.
But now when it comes to paying the dog management fee, Aunt Zhong is very angry. The next year, as soon as it arrives, the street calls to collect the fee, but what happens after the payment? No services, no free vaccines, no place to walk dogs, wheres the money? In the next few years, when the renovation was relaxed and the inspection was less, aunt Zhong did not pay the management fee for raising dogs again.
At 12 p.m. or 6 a.m. to walk the dog, Aunt Zhong had to choose the coldest time of the street to fight guerrilla warfare in order to avoid checking. In case of bad luck, we will have to make up for it when we meet the check-up, but I will not take the initiative to register.
