Serbia: New Petition – Stop The Dogcatchers In Svilajnac / Serbia – We Need Answers To Where All The Dogs Have Gone !

Serbian  Flag

Goran dogcatcher petition

 

Please take time out and support this important petition about the hundreds of dogs which are being caught and then disappearing within a few days.  Our friend Goran provides the full details below – these are his words.  We have provided the petition link twice for you.  Please support and crosspost – Thanks.

We are running several petitions at the moment; as we feel that this is the only real way to show the EU, the Macedonian and also the Serbian authorities that the situation is serious and they cannot go on forever telling lies to a watching world.  The massive international support of the petitions shows just how much interest people are taking in every move the authorities make.

We have also provided links to all of the current petitions that we have running for the EU, Macedonia and also Serbia.  You can find them all at the end of this post. – SAV.

Goran dogcatcher petition

 Goran Explains the Current Situation:

We demand the immediate stop of the dog catcher!

Regularly in place Svilajnac / Serbia ordered to street dogs the dog catchers capture.

These animals end up in a shelter where they die under suspicious circumstances after 2-3 days. Many of the captured dogs are just gone. It is alleged they have been vaccinated, neutered and released.

That’s not true!

None of the trapped dog has surfaced again.

There is a reasonable suspicion that dogs are killed.

Serbia has a NO KILL law and we demand that the Serbian guidelines are observed with respect to the Animal Welfare Act.

We also ask for details of the whereabouts of the trapped dogs.

We are currently planning a castration campaign in place Svilajnac to the population to master. This is not possible if the sterilized through our association dogs are caught and killed.

We appeal to adjust to the Mayor of the city Svilajnac to end this cruelty to animals with immediate effect.

We would also like to know the whereabouts of the dogs have been caught in the past 2 months.

We will no longer look like Serbian legislation is circumvented and, if necessary, contact us to higher authority within the EU to these atrocities and unnecessary behavior to end.

Momo’s story.

Momo is a dog who came in the shelter in 2012.
He was like an ugly duckling. Unlike other abandoned and discarded dogs that roam the streets trying to survive, Momo was bypassed by all. No one wanted to approach him, let alone dare to pet him. Children did not know what kind of creature he was, and the parents firmly kept them away from him.

Without the hand of salvation his days were numbered.

Momo

Then, one day, on a tip that some skinny, dirty and hairless dog is in the yard of the kindergarten, volunteers from the shelter “Alex” went to see how they can help him.

That day was a turning point in Momo’s life.

It was the chance he has been waiting and hoping for so long as time and people passed by him, and his condition was getting worse.

With less than a year old, Momo was diagnosed with tick borne disease and Demodex. He was immediately placed under treatment and volunteers were only hoping that it wasn’t too late. Momo, however, was lost and scared, but the gentle touch of a human hand and bowls of food made the fear slowly disappear, and the faith in people was gained back.

Over time, from ugly duckling Momo has become a real beauty. He overcame the tick-borne disease, and Demodex was gone as well. His white creamy coat is now long and thick. By nature he is very active and cheerful, and he uses his second chance to the fullest. He likes long walks and is a very good guard.

There’s just one wish that Momo has: his own home. If he could find his family Momo’s story would indeed have a happy ending. Although he does not get well with the other animals, with children he is excellent, and we are sure to somebody he would be an ideal new family member.

Momo is vaccinated, chipped, neutered and ready to be someone’s loyal friend for life.

England: ‘Clustrmap’ Update Sometime Soon !

England

At some point over the next couple of weeks, our completely independent global ‘Clustrmap’ service is going to revert back to being a clean map with no red dots.

http://www4.clustrmaps.com/counter/maps.php?user=9b44b4e0

This is not a problem; but is just part of the annual clean up that is done by the Clustrmap folks.  All the current red dots will be removed and we will revert to a new, clean global map.

If this annual clean up did not take place, we would just be swamped in red – and the map would not give us any indication of where our visitors are coming from.  It is a little map, but we do get some idea of where visitors are located; and as such we can target campaigns more to those regions.  If you wish to see a bigger version, just click where indicated (on the map) – bottom right.

So when you see a ‘nice clean map’ turn up on the site sometime soon; don’t worry about it.  The more visitors we get from different parts of the world, the sooner the map will glow bright red once again.

Keep visiting and help us glow red quickly !!

Here below are some of the global visitors we have had during the last 12 months.

THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS

I am the voice of the voiceless;
    Through me the dumb shall speak;
Till the deaf world’s ear be made to hear
    The cry of the wordless weak.
From street, from cage, and from kennel,
    From jungle and stall, the wail
Of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
    Of the mighty against the frail.

I am a ray from the centre;
    And I will feed God’s spark,
Till a great light glows in the night and shows
    The dark deeds done in the dark.
And full on the thoughtless sleeper
    Shall flash its glaring flame,
Till he wakens to see what crimes may be
    Cloaked under an honoured name.

The same Force formed the sparrow
    That fashioned man, the king;
The God of the Whole gave a spark of soul
    To furred and to feathered thing.
And I am my brother’s keeper,
    And I will fight his fight,
And speak the word for beast and bird,
    Till the world shall set things right.

Let no voice cavil at Science–
The strong torch-bearer of God;
For brave are his deeds, though dying creeds,
Must fall where his feet have trod.
But he who would trample kindness
And mercy into the dust–
He has missed the trail, and his quest will fail:
He is not the guide to trust.

For love is the true religion,
And love is the law sublime;
And all that is wrought, where love is not,
Will die at the touch of time.
And Science, the great revealer,
Must flame his torch at the Source;
And keep it bright with that holy light,
Or his feet shall fail on the course.

Oh, never a brute in the forest,
And never a snake in the fen,
Or ravening bird, starvation stirred,
Has hunted its prey like men.
For hunger, and fear, and passion
Alone drive beasts to slay,
But wonderful man, the crown of the plan,
Tortures, and kills, for play.

He goes well fed from his table;
He kisses his child and wife;
Then he haunts a wood, till he orphans a brood,
Or robs a deer of its life.
He aims at a speck in the azure;
Winged love, that has flown at a call;
It reels down to die, and he lets it lie;
His pleasure was seeing it fall.

And one there was, weary of laurels,
Of burdens and troubles of State;
So the jungle he sought, with the beautiful thought
Of shooting a she lion’s mate.
And one came down from the pulpit,
In the pride of a duty done,
And his cloth sufficed, as his emblem of Christ,
While murder smoked out of his gun.

One strays from the haunts of fashion
With an indolent, unused brain;
But his sluggish heart feels a sudden start
In the purpose of giving pain.
And the fluttering flock of pigeons,
As they rise on eager wings,
From prison to death, bring a catch in his breath:
Oh, the rapture of killing things!

Now, this is the race as we find it,
Where love, in the creed, spells hate;
And where bird and beast meet a foe in the priest
And in rulers of fashion and State.
But up to the Kingdom of Thinkers
Has risen the cry of our kin;
And the weapons of thought are burnished and brought
To clash with the bludgeons of sin.

Far Christ, of a million churches,
Come near to the earth again;
Be more than a Name; be a living Flame;
‘Make Good’ in the hearts of men.
Shine full on the path of Science,
And show it the heights above,
Where vast truths lie for the searching eye
That shall follow the torch of love.
