Dog owners rush to register pets


Share post:

DOG OWNERS HAVE BEEN rushing to get their pets registered following the fatal dog attack on January 28 that claimed the life of 74-year-old retiree Verona Gibson.

Since that incident in Haggatt Hall, St Michael, more than 1 000 people have registered their animals with the Animal Control Centre.

But even with this influx of people trying to get on the right aside of the law, it is felt that the number of those still in breach of the regulations far outnumber those who are doing what’s legally correct.

Inspector with the Animal Control Centre, Peter Belgrave, said they believed more than two-thirds of the dogs in Barbados were unregistered, even though the official records showed more than 33 000 on register.(LK)
