FREE dispensers with plastic bags that fasten onto the dog lead are available from San Fulgencio Town Hall. This is part of an initiative to keep the streets and green areas clean of dog excrement. To be eligible for the free gift residents must have registered their pet in the Town Hall Pet Registrar.
All that is required is for each dog owner to show their identity, or their pet registration document at the Town Hall.
It is a legal requirement to collect one’s dog’s excrement and dispose of it in the correct manner. There are many waste bins located throughout the municipality for this purpose.
Fines of between €30 and €300 can be imposed if a dog owner does not adhere to this law.
