Apres 60, 622 signature ce maire de Roumanie a promis de stopper le genocide des chiens ...
60,622 people around the world have successfully urged Mayor Decebal Făgădău of Constanța to stop the city’s cruel ‘catch and kill’ policy for dogs, and introduce a humane dog population management policy instead
We launched the petition in June, after being made aware of the unnecessary suffering and death that was being inflicted on dogs in Constanța, Romania.
Leaving the ‘catch and kill’ policy behindThe policy was launched in the year 2000 in an attempt to reduce the number of dogs on Constanța’s streets. Every two hours a stray dog is killed in the city, and over 4,000 are killed each year. The policy is not only cruel, but ineffective. Despite the large number of dogs killed, population numbers have not reduced.
Thanks to our supporters, the policy will end soon.
A big step forward for stray dogsThe Vice-Mayor promised to develop a dog population programme that would include:
- implementation of our responsible pet ownership education programme,
- free sterilisation for owned dogs,
- the promotion of micro-chipping among the citizens of Constanța,
- to prolong the current period a dog should stay in a shelter before considering euthanasia from 14 to at least 30 days,
- and to re-open the public shelter with an adoption programme.
