Harvey's Law

Havey's Law - the law for all found domesticated animals (dead and alive) to be scanned for microchips, so that owners can be notified when their pet has been in an accident.

Harvey's Law is

Responsible department: Department for Transport

On November 23rd Harvey ran away at 10pm. Twenty one minutes later he was killed on the M62.

Due to the inadequate procedures of the Highways Agency his fate was not discovered for 13 weeks.

By chance the events of November 23rd were communicated. Imagine the heartache, frustration and distress caused because of inadequate and unenforced procedures.

There are numerous documented occasions where people's pets have been shamelessly discarded without consideration, respect or compassion for the owners rights.

We request Legislation to enforce a formulated process ensuring that HA Departments abide by the following:

Compulsory scanning of all domestic animals retrieved from the highways.

Log report filed and circulated to both Police and Dog Warden.

Photographs of the deceased to be held with the log report to be used for identification purposes.
