1. All domesticated animals (including rabbits & other small animals) by law to spayed and neutered.
2. The only place to get a pet is a pet centre (about 30 such centres in the country).
3. All animals micro-chipped, with own number, detailed description, photo, owners details on computer.
4. Small charge for the pet, if new owners are not well off, to cover some cost. Schemes costs met by donation and a revenue raised by a vast range of articles. People on normal incomes pay standard charge. See note 1
5. By having this scheme, every pet is assured a home, should anything happen to its owner.
6. If a person doesn't look after their pet, its the last one they get (we are just chasing our tails trying to keep up with people who abandon their pets repeatedly - always un-neutered animals, and causing mainly kittens to born outside, very often becoming wild and unhomable, with the mother cats ending up in a pitiful condition. See note 2
7. I've spent 12 years now non-stop, and the situation is already out of hand. The scheme must be started now, without any more delay. The rescue organisations cannot cope anymore.
8. Breeders of specific animals come under the Pet Scheme umbrella.
9. Pets going abroad are checked by a representative in that country - if there are no representatives then the animal is restricted from traveling.
10. Owners who have their animals spayed or neutered are charged the equivalent of £5.00 annual licence fee. Those who don't spay or neuter their animals are charged approximately £500 annual licence fee.
There are two fractions of the debate whether to charge for animals or not. One side holds the opinion that if too much money is charged for the animal it encourages corruption within the organisation. Some people also believe that as it would be wrong to charge for children (in an adoption scheme) it is wrong to make a charge for animals. However others believe that to charge a fee is a first step in ensuring that owners will be able to afford to responibly keep the pet, and also that they will appreciate the pet more because they have had to pay for it. Charging a fee for the animal is also one way to raise revenue for the organisation, which can then be put towards funding help for other needy animals.
This worker regularly sees some terrible cases of cruelty,
such as kittens that have been bashed against the wall. There should be
heavy fines and even prison sentences for those found guilty of cruelty to
animals. Also, two RSPCA Inspectors have agreed that the laws they have to
adhere to are 'pathetic'; and a revision of the law is urgently needed to
allow the RSPCA greater powers to prosecute, with stronger sentences.
