City Council Laws for Dogs (part 2)

In continuation from last month’s article about the City Council Law:

Article 22: The collection of animals in public places.

  1. An animal is considered abandoned if it has no identification and there is no owner around. If the animal does have identification (microchip) it is considered lost. The owner will be notified and has 5 days to collect and pay for the costs made. If the owner does not collect the animal, it will be considered abandoned but the owner is still held responsible.

City Council Laws for Dogs (part 1)

As a foreigner in Spain it is not always clear what the exact rules are. Bear in mind that each municipality can have modified these rules slightly.

The Ayuntamiento de Marbella, delegación de salud, has stipulated the following rules for dogs.

Capitulo IV: ANIMAL HUSBANDRY.

Art 16. Registro Municipal de Animales de Compañía.

The owner of a companion animal is obliged to inscribe the animal at the town hall within 3 months after birth or within 1 month of buying or adopting the animal. The animals must be identified by means of a microchip.
