The Verkhovna Rada registered the bill No. 3796, if adopted, Ukrainians will be obliged to register and microchip pets.
The new law provides for the introduction of compulsory registration for domestic cats, dogs, parrots and hamsters.
According to the explanatory note, the adoption of this bill will become one of the key features of a civilized society according to international and European standards.
If this project is supported by deputies and signed by the president, then Ukrainians will have to pay tax on animals, identify and register:
- homeless animals,
- wild animals,
- laboratory animals.
But they offer to register all animals in a specialized database, and this will not be done free of charge, but the implementation of the project itself requires money from the state budget.
