Spanish pets will have an Animal DNI for 2022. In this animal identity document, which will be compatible with the microchip, there will be basic information such as the name of the pet, the date of birth, the vaccines it has, and all the owner’s information. In this way, the owner of the animal can be easily located in case of abandonment.
The bill also includes other measures in favor of animal rights. Thus, it is envisaged that people who want to have a dog as a companion animal must take a training course that enables them to have an animal in their care. In addition, there is a network of shelters that will welcome the animals of female victims of domestic violence so that abused women could maintain their bond with their pets.
On the other hand, the maximum number of animals in a house will be five although it will not be a retroactive measure. Therefore, when this rule comes into force, people who have more than five animals will be able to continue with them, although they will not be able to acquire more.
In addition, the animals will have the same rights in divorce cases, and it will be a judge who must decide which part of the couple meets the best conditions to remain with their custody.
