Residents of the coastal town of Fiumicino near Rome in Italy can encash on their love for pets after local authorities announced a 50 per cent discount on their trash collection tax on adopting a cat or dog from the local pound.

The measure is part of the town's 2014 budget, which was approved by the centre-left town council Monday, ANSA reported Tuesday.

"This was in addition to exemptions and tax breaks for disadvantaged categories," said Mayor Esterino Montino, who is from the centre-left Democratic Party or Partito Democratico(PD).
