Question for written answer E-002048-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Jørn Dohrmann (ECR)

 Subject:  Conditions in which pets are kept in the EU
 Answer in writing 

Animals in agriculture are subject to strict controls and regulation with a view to achieving the highest possible animal welfare standards for livestock in European farming.

A number of reports about the conditions of pets in the EU suggests that it is perhaps time to look at the conditions in which private individuals keep their pets.

Has the Commission looked at the conditions in which pets are kept in the EU?

Does the Commission have an overview of animal protection cases in the individual Member States?

Does the Commission have any initiatives in the pipeline that are geared towards looking into the conditions in which pets are kept in the EU?

Original language of question: DA
