Pet dogs will soon be allowed to travel with their owners on busses in Málaga. The city is preparing amendments to its bylaws on animal protection and the draft version is presently under review by veterinary associations and other groups, with the aim of the new conditions coming into force by the summer.
The councillor for environmental sustainability, Raul Limenez, says he wants Málaga to be an animal-friendly city in which pets are protected, both for the benefit of residents and for the animals themselves. He also wants to introduce a “genetic census” which will allow owners who do not clean up after their dogs to be identified.
