Animal welfare law to be implemented in Bahrain

A law which will introduce punishments for animal cruelty and neglect is set to be implemented in Bahrain.

The GCC 2014 Animal Welfare Law also covers the inhumane killing of sick animals, abandonment and malnutrition, according to reports.

Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre founder Sandi Thom said, “It took a long time to get to this point but now that there’s an actual proper law in place with penalties, it can pave the way for many other things to come.”

If you’re looking for ways to help out local charities, don’t forget to head down to the Bahrain Animal Rescue Centre’s regular car boot sale.

Entry costs 500 fils, or it costs BHD10 to book a spot to sell your knickknacks, and all the money raised goes directly to the charity.

The next one is set to take place on April 4.

And if you’re planning on adopting your own furry friend, make sure you check out Catopia’s adoption events.

In the past six months, the cat café has helped ten cats find permanent homes.
