Most of us are ignorant about municipal by-laws in South Africa, let alone, Uitenhage. On Facebook I’m the admin for the Uitenhage Forum group with over 12,600 active members.

Carrie Pratt reported this post and brought it to my attention:
“It is against municipal bylaws to allow your dog or cat to have a litter unless registered as a legal breeder currently there are 11 legal breeders none for pitbull it is also I legal to hawk /sell puppies which includes social media by allowing such post it supports illegal back yard breeders I and these kind of posts are becoming more frequent which is very concerning I hope you can understand my concern with such posts.
Much appreciated and to add all females over 6 months should be spayed all relevant detail can be obtained from animal anticruelty league and dog control to confirm my statements are accurate.”
