“AFTER a long and heated debate over pet dog raising, the city passed its canine-owning regulation this afternoon. The new code will take effect on May 15….Under the new regulation, people living in downtown areas and new urban centers such as Lingang and Jiading can only raise one dog per household. And they have to give away the additional ones to friends or relatives or adoption agencies, except for those already owning two or more licensed dogs.
A license is required for canine owners and dogs have to be vaccinated against rabies regularly and go through annual checks. One will be fined between 200 yuan (US$22) and 1,000 yuan or have the dog taken away for breaking the regulation.”
