MPSJ carried out the action after being informed by neighbours regarding the noise and cleanliness of the premises which was believed to be used by a group of animal lovers.
In a statement, MPSJ informed that the owner and residents had ignored several notices and 6 compounds.
During the raid, the owner of the premises acted aggressively by spraying water at the MPSJ enforcement officers.
However, the residents cooperated when the MPSJ officers and police told them that firmer action will be taken should they resist.
From the raid, 18 dogs were moved to the MPSJ dog pound at Taman Perindustrian Puchong Utama.
The owner of the house was also issued another compound.
“Residents of the premises can be charged with the offences of obstruction, disruption and assaulting the enforcement officers who were carrying out their duty under Section 112, of the 1976 Local Government Act (Act 171).”
“If found guilty, the residents can face fines up to RM2,000 or imprisonment for up to 6 months, or both,” he said.
In relation to that, MPSJ is advising all dog owners to abide by the rules and laws under the Licensing of Dogs and Kennel Establishments By-laws 2007 as well as the terms of the Pet Licence.
