Call on Prime Minister Victor Ponta to quash the law which allows the mass killing of stray dogs!

In October last year the tragic death of a child who was allegedly attacked by stray dogs has lead to the introduction of new legislation in Romania which promotes the capture and killing of all stray dogs in this country. Thousands of stray dogs are being brutally caught and sent to horrific dog pounds where they are given just 14 days to be either claimed by an owner or adopted. The conditions in these dogs pounds are terrible: The dogs are kept in crowded dirty wire cages, there is lack of food and medical treatment for the dogs. Since the law was introduced FOUR PAWS has reported over 70 cases of abuses of stray dogs in Bucharest along including the poisoning, drowning and torture of stray dogs. Many authorities chose to ignore the abuse cases taking place on a daily basis.

On 21 March 2014 several dog catchers of the local authority for stray dogs management ASPA abused and illegally took 18 dogs treated by the international animal welfare organisation FOUR PAWS. They broke the lock of the entrance, took the dogs and vandalized the post-operation paddocks of FOUR PAWS veterinary clinic in 6th District of Bucharest. According to several eye witnesses, at least four dogs died on the spot because of the brutal handling.

The only man who has the power to address this situation and stop the killing law is the Romania Prime Minister Victor Ponta. FOUR PAWS is campaigning tirelessly to stop the abuse and killing of all stray dogs in this country. We urgently wish to meet with the key stakeholders in Romania to produce a national strategy for stray dog management which does not rely on brutal methods to capture and kill. This strategy will promote a humane and long-term solution to the problem and must be adopted by the Prime Minister.

we walk these mean streets every day.
they are our homes, we are strays.
our lives are hard, our days long
and sad.
most of the time we feel really bad.
then you come along and then you
decide,
to shoot us and commit this
homicide.
we would like a home
a chance to live,
is that too much for
you to give.

    Why do these people go for the kill option first, without considering other ways of approaching issues? So sad. signed of course 😥
