What if you needed a license to own a pet? This is how Belgian animal rights group Sans Collier wants to fight animal abuse.

    We always had to renew our dog license in Maryland- annually. The description on the license would help locate the owner in case she was lost. When we moved to N.C. we asked our neighbors where we had to go to get her licensed. They looked at us like we were crazy. The licensing fees, while minimal, helped fund the animal control services.

    Too young to preach, man, if it is right to own a pet, it cannot be some random clerk to rid you of your rights, it must be court of the law, unless you want to give up your rights, I don't. Anarchy won't help any pets, let alone the society ;-)

    Since a year in austria. Not okay. Some cant afford the price and are good and most get the animals and treat them like shit.

    This should be considered for all pets. Cats, birds, reptiles also

    Absolutely. Veterinary health insurance should also be compulsory. Animals deserve the best care and if people can't afford the cost they shouldn't have pets.

    Absolutely. You should be required to have a license or government approval for anything you have or want or do or say.

    Yes, absolutely, globally

    We should first start with human licences. Less humans = less problems across the board. If we can't be responsible about our own breeding, how can we expect to breed other species responsibly? Do as I say not as I do?

    If you care about animal abuse start at the slaughterhouses before you try milking the masses for licenses under the false pretense of animal safety. NICE TRY THOUGH!

    Years ago I moved to a new town. There was a local law that all dog owners needed... I guess a form of license. It was a small one time fee and it allowed me to keep my dog with me where ever I went in town ( moved from house to house, just needed to simply update new address. ). They took a photo of her and assigned her, her own type of ID. We received this collar tag with her name and ID #. If she ever got lost, someone could take her to town hall/police station..... and they'd be able to find me and bring doggo home safe. I think I paid like 20$? 30$? And it was good for my dogs life and/or how ever long I stayed in that community... I moved away, so I'd have to pay again if I ever move back there. No biggy. 🤷‍♂️ I do think it's a great idea. It just needs to be done properly, so people won't lose their shits over something simple.

    A license wouldn’t stop animal abuse, we used to have them, some people didn’t buy them and even if they did it wouldn’t stop them treating animals badly if they were so inclined.Scrapped because they cost too much to collect

    Making an owner buy insurance is a good idea too. If their breed can’t be insured, they can’t have it. No need for laws
