Spain: Give Your Support and Start the END TO BULLFIGHTING

Make it happen.

Support the Catalonian people and say ‘enough’!

Polls repeatedly show that this is NOT a tradition most Catalonians are proud of. This year, over 180,000 Catalonian citizens have united behind the Prou (‘enough’) campaign, demanding an end to the bloody cruelty of bullfighting in their region.

 

The Prou campaign calls for a modification to Catalonian animal protection law, which currently safeguards all animals except the bulls and horses used in bullfights.

Overwhelming public support has forced the Catalonian Parliament to schedule a vote on removing the exemption; it will take place later in 2009.

A ‘yes’ vote for animal welfare in this key region would be a groundbreaking step towards making bullfighting history across Spain.

China: Early News Says That Dog Cull in Qinhuangdao has been STOPPED !!

Great news!

Thanks to the immediate response of our supporters, the dog cull in Qinhuangdao has been averted.

The details are still coming in – but it’s clear that the government in Qinhuangdao felt the pressure from IFAW supporters around the world. Public notices and government web site postings announcing the cull have been taken down.

If you ever wondered whether one person can make a difference – well, this is proof that they can!

We will be keeping a close eye on the area until we are convinced that no dogs will be harmed in the future. Many locals sent their pets away to friends and family in order to protect them, and we want to make sure Qinhuangdao remains a safe place for them to return.

You see, local government officials often resort to dog culls because China has no rabies prevention program or animal welfare legislation. A single case of rabies can create a panic – leading to calls for a mass dog slaughter at anytime.

That’s why it’s so important for IFAW to establish vaccination and sterilization programs within China to control overpopulation and disease – before more culls are called for.

 I’m so proud of what we were able to achieve for these dogs. I want to thank all of our animal friends like you for helping to prevent such tragic and needless suffering, and for making today such a wonderful day for animals.

Sincerely,
Fred O’Regan
IFAW President

SAV Comment:

Well done everyone who took part in this campaign.

As we have always said, just like the need for a programme in Serbia, China needs to adopt vaccination and sterilization programs to control overpopulation and disease.

We say a programme is required to reduce animal numbers; IFAW say the same; so why do governments not get the message and act ? ! ? !
