Pets can be a source of joy for many people. They provide mental support to alone people and are often taken as a companion. They are a source of unconditional love. They have become a family member of their owners and are cherished by them.
But alas! They can’t think of spending quality time with their pets. Most of the public places and public transports do not allow pets. So forget about going on a trip with your dog, you can’t even o to a public place to vet for routine checkups.
Pets are not allowed in public transports, stores, or restaurants. Even if you take your pet to a pet café you won’t serve any food as they don’t serve human food. To take your pet to a clinic or a vet you have to take him in a carrier under strict supervision.
If you are going on a vacation or a family holiday you have to leave your pet in the house or a pet center. Or you have to ask the airport whether you can bring a weird scaly friend on the plane. And spend hours researching how to take your pet by plane or train.
Pets aren’t allowed to travel on public transport because of inconvenience caused by them to other peoples…Your pet can be your best buddy but can be a nightmare for others.
Many pet owners want some relief from this restriction. The majority of people want their pets to be allowed at least in playgrounds, public parks, beaches, and public transport. A well-behaved and leashed pet should be allowed in a public place, with the sole responsibility of its owners.
