Animals in Egyptian Law

The laws in this section are the existing laws in Egypt.
Over the years, S.P.A.R.E., in conjunction with other animal welfare associations, attempted to introduce a new legislation.

New Legislation 
Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Egypt advocated this course of Legislation during the Conference on the Care and Development of Animal Resources in Islamic Civilization. The Conference’s main recommendation was to issue a new legislation for Compassion and Kindness to Animals.

The proposed legislation was refused, and S.P.A.R.E. are in the process of recommending another one.

We would like to introduce a new specialized legislation that would group all laws and ministerial decrees dedicated to the protection of animals, to which would be added new articles that stipulate compassion and mercy.

The New Animal Rights Law included chapters on:
Domesticated animals (pets)
Livestock (handling and transportation; conditions in slaughterhouses)

Working animals (equines; circuses; wildlife)

Slaughterhouse regulations (including, but not limited to, operation and treatment of animals)
Protection of natural resources
Penalties: on the condition that penalties include owners, animal welfare societies and arbitrary abusers.

S.P.A.R.E and the Egyptian Constitution (November 2013)
Once again Amina Abaza leads the way for animal welfare in Egypt. As a member of the free Egyptian party and due to her political engagement in Egypt, Amina was invited to the Egyptian parliament to discuss issue relating to Women’s rights and positions within the Egyptian society... Amina took the opportunity to highlight the parallelism of abuse in general in the Egyptian society depicting the correlation of abuses towards women, minorities and animals.

Mrs. Mervat Eltelway, one of the committee members formulating the new Egyptian constitution, as well as everyone present were so impressed by Amina's speech, that they asked her; being the most prominent figure for animal Welfare in Egypt and the world animal day ambassador - to present an animal welfare proposal to be discussed and included in the Egyptian constitution. Hence the birth of article 45!
Thanks to the dedicated and tenacious efforts of countless Egyptian animal advocates, thousands of signatures were collected to push SPARE's animal welfare proposal forward.

A special and noteworthy THANK YOU goes to :

Professor Sir Magdy Yacoub,
Mrs. Mervat Eltelawy (Constitution committee member),
And Mr. Mohamed Selmawy (Constitution official spokesperson) as well as, everyone else involved for the extraordinary support and pushing forward the inclusion of the animal welfare clause "Article 45" proposed by SPARE.
