Important Update on Spain's New Animal Welfare Law
🐾 Have you heard about Spain's recent Animal Welfare Law? There's been some buzz about certain provisions in the media and on social platforms, so let's clarify some key points.
This law does not establish a limit on the number of pets you can have in your home. Such limits are determined by autonomous communities and municipalities. For example, in Madrid and Málaga, the limit is set at five animals, but it varies by region.
If you exceed your local limit, you can register as a "zoological nucleus" in your area, streamlining information across the country.
While the specific regulations on the number of pets in your home vary by location, remember that responsible pet ownership and the well-being of animals are at the heart of this law. Always check with local authorities for the most up-to-date information. 🐶🐱🐾 #AnimalWelfareSpain #PetLovers

Prohibited Pets List: The law establishes a list of animals prohibited as pets to protect both the animals and the public.
Pet Store Changes: Pet stores can no longer sell dogs or cats, promoting responsible adoption.
