I vote »Yes« for stray animals!
Dear animal lover,
EU parliamentarians Alain Hutchinson, David Hammerstein und Neil Parish have written a declaration on the welfare of pets and stray animals (PDF).
A vote on this declaration will be held in EU parliament shortly — the time limit to sign this declaration is May 7th, 2009.
Dear Member of the EU Parliament,
I consider this declaration not only as an act of humanity but as a necessary action in a modern and forward-looking Europe. Knowing which parties and parliamentarians plead for animal protection issues considerably influences my electoral behaviour.
Thank you very much indeed!
Please forward this petition to friends and colleagues via eMail!
Thank You for your support!

Neck injuries which the noose causes
… and this ….
… and this.

NOW PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION !
Despite the existence of animal protection laws stray animals have become a questionable source of income in many European countries: their capture, custody and killing offer good business opportunities by involving public money originally designated to improve the stray animals situation.
