Please help save Romanian strays

Dear Friends,


Last week the Romanian government met to discuss the possibility of moving forward with an illegal mass slaughter of Romanian stray dogs.  Dogs EXACTLY the same as those that many of you in this group email have adopted.  The authorities want to be able to round up any stray dog or puppy (including those that may be owned but have been allowed to roam), incarcerate them for 7-days and then euthanise them.


This of course would be sad enough were it not for the fact that of course the dogs will not be humanely euthanised.  The vets (….or even cheap labour/hired help) they will employ to do the task will probably not be qualified and they will use the cheapest methods possible including poison, battering the dogs to death or their preferred method… simply starving them to the point that they kill each other for food.


Since last week there have been many flashpoint protest groups, lots of national press (some of it propaganda by the government trying to whip up support for these measures) but those against these barbaric proposals have won some small victories and pushed back the day when the final decision is made.  It’s possible however that it is only a matter of time before they start.  They have adjourned to look again at the details so we and the international community at large MUST keep the pressure on!  PLEASE send emails to the people listed in Carmen’s report below.  Even if you only have 2-minutes please ask them to ‘choose life and not mass murder’ of these innocent creatures.  Every email sent really makes a difference, it has in the past and we’re all hoping it will in this case!!


If they are allowed to start this program there will be no end.  Every dog/puppy will be rounded up systematically every day and sent to these killing pounds.  This will NOT solve the long-term problem of stray dogs in Romania, it is only a quick fix.  When they tried a similar thing in Bucharest a few years back, they killed 150,000 dogs, less then 2 years later the numbers had bounced right back to the same level.


Every leading expert in the subject of ‘Stray Dog Management’ across the world agrees that extensive and organisedCNR (Catch, Neuter and Return) is the only PROVEN way to control the numbers in the long term.


Yet the Romanian authorities refuse to spend money on this and instead prepare to embark on mass murder on the cheap which will solve nothing in the long term.

Thanks for your support.  Please also crosspost and share if you can!!




Please send a mass e-mail to the following people asking them not to euthenise but CNR – Thank you.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
