Access to public areas
The SPCA is extremely concerned to see that signs not allowing the walking of dogs are being put up at many public gardens in Valletta and other parts of the island. We feel strongly that responsible dog owners should be allowed access to all public parks as long as their dogs are secured on a leash and that they clear up any mess left by their pets. Naturally, owners who disregard these rules should be fined in accordance with the law and we do not condone irresponsible behaviour in any way.
Can we please ask the necessary authorities to review this situation and give back the public areas to those who wish to enjoy them with their dogs in a responsible manner?
