Pattaya officials looking to limit pet ownership

Pattaya Mail are reporting that there’s been a renewed push to limit the number of pets residents can keep and make registration compulsory in Pattaya.

Pattaya’s deputy mayor Manote Nongyai chaired a May 21 meeting on new regulations governing the keeping and registration of dogs and cats. The proposals are based on a Public Health Department memo from February 2016 that would limit owners of normal-sized homes to 2 dogs and 3 cats.

Pets would have to be registered at the sub-district office with allowances made for larger homes.

The proposal wouldn’t include changes proposed by the Agriculture Ministry in 2018 that would have imposed payment of fees for registration. Other rules cover moving pets to new areas, signage and picking up after their messes in public areas.
