Residents of Karachi’s Clifton won’t be allowed to keep pet dogs without getting them registered with the area’s cantonment board.
It is mandatory for people keeping pet dogs in their houses to register the animals with the Clifton Cantonment Board as per Section 119 of the Cantonment Act, 1924, a notification issued Thursday stated.
