New Animal Welfare legislation in Lithuania

In October 2012, Lithuania has voted a new Animal Welfare legislation. Despite few criticial points, VIER PFOTEN is warmly welcoming this new legislation which is taking in consideration the basic animal welfare principle settled down by Article 13 of the Lisbon treaty TFEU but also many points of the”Vilnius Declaration”. With this new legislation, Lithuania can be acclamed for having one of the best animal welfare legislation in Europe, especially regarding stray animals population management. VIER PFOTEN is particularly welcoming the mandatory registration of all companion animals in a commun public database managed by the Ministry of Agrilculture.
