MAYOR of Benalmádena on the Costa del Sol, Víctor Navas, and the Councillor for Health, Alicia Laddaga, have announced a modification of regulations around the protection, welfare, and responsible possession of animals.

The aim is to address the problem of pets relieving themselves on public roads, and Navas said:

“We are responding to a demand from many residents who had expressed their discomfort around this issue: no one wants a street lamp or a corner near their home perpetually full of urine.

Benalmadena residents will be forced to clean up dog urine on public roads with soapy water or vinegar.

Failure to do so could land dog owners with a hefty fine, set by the local government on a case by case basis.

“This change in the regulations seeks to make the public aware that having a pet involves a responsibility to keep the streets clean and avoid bad smelling and unhygienic areas.”
