Knysna Animal Welfare Society started this petition to Knysna Municipality

In June 2020, Knysna Animal Welfare Society asked the Knysna Municipality to change this By-Law. All requirements prescribed by the Knysna Municipality were complied with, but since then the Knysna Municipality has ignored all enquiries and requests to make the requested changes to the By-law. Knysna Animal Welfare Society also indicated that it is willing to act as an “Authorised Agent” to the By-Law, as it recognises the Municipality’s shortage of manpower to enforce these additions to the By-Law. An “Authorised Agent” means an authorised official of the Municipality or any other person who is appointed or authorised by the Municipality thereto to perform any act, function or duty related to the provisions of this By-Law, or exercise any power in terms of this By-Law.

ACTION 1:  STERILISATION OF DOGS OVER THE AGE OF 6 MONTHS UNLESS THE OWNER CAN PROVIDE PROOF THAT HE/SHE IS A REGISTERED BREEDER AT KUSA (KENNEL UNION OF SOUTHERN AFRICA) OR THE SPECIFIC DOG BREED’S FEDERATION
