Pattaya officials looking for limit pet ownership
The Pattaya Mail is reporting that there has been a renewed push to limit the number of pets that residents can keep, and to make registration compulsory in Pattaya.
Pattaya’s deputy mayor, Manote Nongyai, chaired a May 21 meeting on new regulations governing the keeping and registration of dogs and cats.
The proposals are based on a Public Health Department memo from February 2016 that would limit owners of “normal-sized” homes to two dogs and three cats.
Pets would have to be registered at the sub-district office, with allowances made for larger homes.
The proposal would not include changes proposed by the Agriculture Ministry last year that would have imposed the payment of fees for registration.
Other proposed rules cover moving pets to new areas, signage and picking up after their messes in public areas.
