Praia, Feb 24 (Inforpress) – The Civil Movement of Responsible Communities (MCCR) is collecting signatures to bring to parliament a civil initiative that provides for the regulation of rearing domestic animals in Cabo Verde.
This information was advanced by the head of the MCCR, Maria Fortes, in an interview with Inforpress, stating that the initiative arose from the need to have, in Cabo Verde, legislation regulating the rearing domestic animals, highlighting companion dogs and dogs of potentially dangerous breed.
In recent years the rearing domestic animals and marketing of potentially dangerous breed dogs, according to Maria Fortes, has become fashionable, stressing that in many cases the breeders of these dogs have no supervision and there is no guarantee that these animals are well treated.
“There are sales in this sequence, these dogs are sold and in the case of Cabo Verde obviously it is not a good practice, when we have so many abandoned animals on the streets, but there is this practice that has no regulation, has no supervision and is practiced freely and anyone can acquire animals from any breed,” she said, addressing the situation about the increase in rearing breed dogs in Cabo Verde.
