A MEDIEVAL EUROPEAN NATION WHO’S CURRENT ACTIONS CAST DISGRACE ON THE REST OF DECENT (PRO WELFARE) CITIZENS IN EUROPE.
Remove these medieval animal abusers from the modern day EU – and do it now !
EU Citizens – Please remember – the Euro Elections are in May 2014 – tell your MEPs to act and act now on this issue if they want YOUR VOTE. The time for talking and lost promises has passed – the EU demands action from its politicians !!

Here below are the contact e mail addresses for ALL Romanian Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
You may wish to drop them a short line regarding the situation below, and asking them to wake up and get back to their national government to take action about this. With European MEP elections this coming May, they need to attempt to gain public appeal and support, and votes. They are not doing this by treating animals this way in Romania.
Time for change or time for new Romanian government and MEP’s; or alternatively, get Romania out of the EU if it wants to behave in this manner.

Forgotten Dogs in Romania Waiting for Death
After the passing of the kill law dogs are waiting in freezing temperatures and hungry for death. Please Help! Share this Article.
Romania: After the passing of the kill law dogs are waiting in freezing temperatures and hungry for death.
Romania is drowned in snow up to 2 meters high, an icy wind blows across the land; in many places there is no getting through.
Trucks have to discontinue their journeys, because even the main roads into Bucarest are impassable.
Mobile networks are disrupted and the thing animal activists have dreaded since September 2013, has finally happened.
With the onset of winter at the beginning of this year the situation of the dogs has come to a head.
Since September of 2013, when Romania declared an all-out-war on strays, the animals have been hunted with unprecedented cruelty – being caught with wire nooses and taken to council “shelters”.
The „adoption law“, which legalises killing after 14 days, is, in reality, a kill law.
Not only is she short period of time allowed for adoption a mayor hurdle – it is also not very common in Romania to adopt street dogs and the councils arbitrarily make it difficult for people to adopt.
What this means for the dogs is difficult to imagine. They are being penned up: small and large dogs, old and sick dogs and pups.
In many of the council shelters the dogs waste away, without food and care, until they are, as recently happened in Craiova, beaten to death.
A third of the dogs incarcerated there were “euthanized” in this way over night (see image of cleaning up afterwards).
Many shelters were cut off from the world by the massive onset of winter, and contrary to those dogs in private shelter, where activists fight for every single life, these dogs were left to their fate.
It is beyond comprehension that this sort of thing is allowed to happen in an EU member state.
Unpunished and unhindered Romania violates every agreement concerning animal welfare and recommendations for sensible population control.
Animal activists are fighting a losing battle.
The volunteer, who have gained access to these “hell shelters”, to see how the dogs are faring and to try and help, suffer extreme emotional distress and will never forget what they see. Nevertheless they do not leave the dogs to their fate.
The Romanian state shows its most ugly face in these days and the European community is silent and tolerates the mass murder of dogs.
A Romanian activist reports: it was noticed on Saturday already that the kennels at the council shelter of Craiova were empty. And where, in the beginning, 6 to 8 dogs sat, only one or two remained.
Activists of the privately-run initiative SPERATNA PENTRU ANIMALE /Craiova went to the local shelter at Breasta on a daily basis in order to feed the dogs there (between 700 and 800!) with their own food – or else they would’ve had nothing to eat.
Due to bad snow fall they were FORBIDDEN to enter the shelter Breasta / Craiova for several days.
When the situation relaxed weatherwise, and they were allowed to return on Saturday, they found a third of the dogs gone.
Every day now the number of dogs diminishes. From yesterday to today another 100 dogs disappeared – they are killing them over night.
Many Romania and foreign activists and organisations are fighting for every soul and urgently need your help.
