A seven-day reflection period
A phenomenon which should perhaps be reduced with a new decree which came into force on Saturday 1 October. From now on, for any adoption, you must sign a “certificate of commitment and knowledge” and wait for a seven-day reflection period. The president of the Mulhouse SPA hopes that this will put an end to adoptions on a whim.

An opinion shared by most of the dog handlers encountered during their walk. “Because it’s an emotional purchase, having a cooling off period is a good thing,” says Jean. For Jean-Marc, the reflection period may even be “too short”.
In addition to dogs, the certificate of commitment and knowledge also concerns cats, ferrets, rabbits or even equines.
