Innovative social governance taking shape in Shanghai’s outskirts

A coastal town on the city’s southern outskirts has launched an “early warning” mechanism to encourage people to properly raise their pets for the safety of others.

Haiwan in Fengxian District, the city’s southernmost town near Hangzhou Bay, officially released its “three-color warning” program recently.

A blue reminder is issued to owners who fail to clear pet excrement in public places or whose dogs disturb neighbors with excessive barking.

Those who fail to use leashes, put muzzles on large dogs or apply for a pet health certificate will receive a yellow warning.

If a pet injures someone or owners fail to correct blue and yellow violations, a red warning will be given, which can lead to pets being taken away from their owners.
