Dear animal friend

STOP Long Animal Transports

Today, too many animals are transported under unacceptable conditions on European highways.

The most important issue is the duration of the transports. Current EU legislation allows for animals to be transported for several days.

This has to be changed.

Live animals for slaugther should never be transported for more than eight hours.

Support 8hours.

Our goal is to collect 1,000,000 signatures, something EU politicians will not be able to ignore.

We have now more than 30,000 signatures. We are happy about that, however, it is far from enough.

During the spring, it is anticipated that the European Commission will introduce a new bill regarding animal transportation. It is a big opportunity for us who want to stop the long and unacceptable transports taking place everyday throughout Europe.

Therefore, I invite you to get your friends to sign as well.

We are already 30,000 just 3 or 4 friends more per person will be more than 100,000.

That would be a strong signal to send and we could make a difference.

Best regards
