The new legislation of the Buenos Aires Legislature authorizing severe fines to those who abuse domestic animals received criticism from protective associations, which described the provision as insufficient.

While considering that this is a step forward, the entities point out that “much remains to be done to combat animal abuse and abandonment”.

“ We think it's okay that there are fines for loose animals, as more and more people go out with their dogs without a collar and leash and even enter supermarkets leaving their dogs loose waiting for them at the door,” said Martha Gutiérrez, president of ADDA Argentina (Association for the Defence of Animal Rights).

At the same time he regretted that ADDA, “an association that has been working in the defense of animals for 40 years has not been consulted by legislators and to contribute their long experience in this problem, since this body receives between 40 and 50 complaints per day of abuse of animals”.

For its part the Foundation for Non-Human Animal Rights (Fundanh), expressed its disagreement with this law, as they claim that before “the City Governmentshould comply with the law that provides for the creation of a center of attention veterinarian per commune (currently there are two), and neither did the castrations necessary to stop the number of animals on the streets.”

“ There is an excess of dogs and cats on the public road, which in many cases are rescued and the expenses are paid by NGOs or private individuals,” said Carla Verde of Fundanh .
