| Dear Supporter, |
Once again we need your help!
MPs will be debating the issue of dangerous dogs and irresponsible dog ownership next Wednesday, 6 July – please encourage your MP to attend the debate and support the RSPCA’s work.
Caroline Nokes MP (Con, Southampton and Romsey) has secured a debate on Wednesday morning to press the Minister to take action on irresponsible dog ownership.
The RSPCA is urging MPs to attend the debate and support our calls for the government to introduce a Dog Control Bill in the Queen’s Speech based on the work we, the police and local authorities have done.
The government has yet to announce its response to the public consultation held last year on dangerous dogs, and those who work on the frontline believe that the status quo is unacceptable, not only for public safety and animal welfare, but also the cost to the taxpayer.
The RSPCA believes that any future legislation must:
|• Improve animal welfare so that dogs are properly protected |
• Improve public safety by extending the law to cover private property
• Provide a step by step approach so that earlier intervention can occur and appropriate action can be taken at more appropriate times
• Provide a more proportionate and consistent approach that frees up enforcers’ resources and ability to work constructively with communities
Please write to your MP asking him or her to attend the debate and call on the Minister to commit to a government Bill in the Queen’s Speech next spring.
Many thanks for your support,
