Tomorrow votes are going to be cast on a new bill that cancels the 9/2008 law contents and that provides to go back to massacre stray dogs.
The proposal comes from a PDL group of members of Parliament, President Basescu party, but it is also supported by some “outsiders” as the deputy Antonella Marinescu, from the PDS, who has been elected just in Costanza province where Save the Dogs operates.
The novelties that the members of parliament want to introduce range from the absolute ban for the associations to release neutered and vaccinated dogs in the streets, to suppressing aggressive dogs in two days and all of the others in two weeks. Not only that: restrictions will be introduced about possessing more than two animals at home (under the obligation to have the condo meeting approval) and associations will be prevented from going into public kennels to check the authorities work.
Tomorrow a demonstration is scheduled at 1.00 pm in front of the Bucharest Parliament, that will also be attended by the Save the Dogs President and the General Manager in Romania. It will be possible to follow the Committee works and approach some members to influence their vote. Currently 75% of the Committee deputies declared to be in favour of mass killing.
Life for a stray cat is not easy in Romania and the story of this cat is a good example.
The cat in the photo was attacked by a stray dog in Cernavoda and only with the intervention of a lady who feeds stray cats and emergency care from Save the Dogs – the cat was saved.
There are dozens and dozens of cases that arrive each week at our branches in Cernavoda and Medgidia and only a small part can be shown on our website. Thanks to your donations, we are able to offer free assistance to these animals who wouldn’t have a chance to survive if our association were not present on location.
You can support first aid/emergency assistance indicating reason for payment “first aid” or donate with a credit card. Thanks to everyone!
