China city adopts one dog rule

July 5, 2017

For decades China has had a one-child policy. It is now seeking to control another Chinese population – limiting households to one dog.

Dog ownership in China has skyrocketed in recent years. The vast majority of pet owners are under the age of 45 and there were 100 millon pets in China in 2015, with 62% of them dogs, followed by cats at 19%.

Pet ownership grows roughly 10 percent a year.

Owners with more than one dog must give the others to an adoption agency in order to comply with the one-dog policy.

All dogs must also be registered with the authorities.
