Local veterinary department in Cyprus
This is where you make a complaint about animal cruelty or neglect. Don’t just be a whiner writing to a newspaper – take action! Use your rights! Use the law! Cyprus has an excellent animal welfare law (46/1994)
Here is the procedure:
– The Veterinary Department must send someone to check out the animal(s).
– The owner is warned and told what steps s/he must carry out.
– If no improvement, the Veterinary Department will return with a police officer.
– If still no improvement, the owner can be charged.
