Rejected petition To Regulate all animal rescue centres in wales

Given how many animals are being rescued we feel that there is a need to bring strict regulations around animal rescue centres
They should be licensed and checked on a regular basis and follow strict rules and regulations for the safety of all animals

More details

Rescue centres are becoming more and more prominent today than ever.
We feel that most rescue centres do amazing work, but some have set up and the animals in their care haven’t had the care and attention they need

We feel regulation and checks are long overdue in this sector

Why was this petition rejected?

We can't publish petitions when the request is something that's already happening or something that has been announced since you started your petition. We think your petition is covered by Government or Senedd action already. If you'd like something else, you could start a new petition clearly explaining what it is.

The Welsh Government have already announced their intention to introduce a licensing requirement in relation to animal exhibits and animal establishments (including sanctuaries and rescue/ rehoming centres) in their Wales Animal Welfare Plan published in November 2020.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
