The New draft contains all these imperatives, because:
It introduces a distinction between the management of stray dogs per se and of owned dogs which are at large without their owners (dogs in the public domain without being supervised by their owners)
It regulates in detail the conditions in which the medical services needed for sterilization and the services for the management of stray dogs can be externalized (in order to block the misuse of public money and the sabotage of finding solutions for the management of start and the rhythm in which the sterilizations are done, which are essential)
It regulates - very specifically - the involvement of private and juridical persons in the neutering/spaying process of animals or in the way these persons take dogs directly from the streets and how these persons collaborate with the authorities
It prioritizes and it gives directions to the actions of capture and sterilization of dogs (based on objective criteria) meaning that the priority in capture should be aggressive dogs, dogs in dense populated zones, dogs which have not been castrated, and the females would have priority for spaying
It strictly regulates the community dogs, it bans their transfer in another territory and it allows their direct adoption from the streets, etc
It proposes alternative and cheaper solutions for the sheltering of dogs (temporary shelters, fosters places, and half-open shelters)
It offers flexible solutions, based on the efficiency of the operators of public services and the efficiency of the management of stray dogs
It introduces very precise, rigorous and necessary duties to dog owners, including a fee for having a natural dog (not sterilized). Dog owners will have the obligation to identify and register their animals, to declare the litters, the loss, the estrangement or the death of the dogs they have. They will be obliged to avoid to mate their dogs with stray dogs; they will not be allowed to let their dogs roam freely in public spaces; they will be obliged to be periodically monitored by the veterinary services in order to detect the pregnancies in time.
It regulates, in details, the creation and functioning of the data base for the registration and identification of dogs
It introduces consistent and complex educational and informative programs regarding the necessity of the sterilization, the adoption, the prevention and the fight against abandonment
It regulates, very clearly, the protection and well being of animals which are the subject of this law and it regulates the efficient monitoring of the implementation of these norms for the well being of animals
It contains precise and complex sanctions, which cover each norm from the disposition section of the legislative act
It contains transitory and final policies regulating certain situations that emerged in the context of the previous legislation, by explicitly repealing the normative legal acts that are in contradiction with the current law
