The permit will be requested from anyone who wishes to acquire an animal from a trade, a shelter or a breeding from July 1st. However, the adaptation period was decided so that the implementation of this reform could take place under the best conditions.
Until September 30, if a person presents himself without a permit, he can still acquire the desired animal.
Conditions have been set. The purchaser must provide proof that he has not been deprived of the right to keep an animal by October 1st at the latest. Shops, shelters and breeding farms are obliged to inform prospective buyers of the obligation to transmit the extract, issued by the municipal administrations, by bringing to their attention the official information presented by the Walloon Region on its website.
