We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Create independent inspection scheme for dogs held under the Dangerous Dogs Act

Form an animal welfare scheme of independent experts from animal welfare organisations, a behaviourist, and a vet to observe and inspect conditions of kennels where seized dogs are held.

More details

Dogs have been returned home with serious health conditions, illnesses or underweight. We believe seized dogs are not being cared for in accordance with Section 9 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and Section 3 of the Animal Welfare Act 2006, because the kennels of seized dogs are not currently inspected by an independent team like the Animal Welfare Independent Visitors Scheme which is used for police dogs.
