Italy: Please Take Action NOW for the ‘Canile’ Dogs – Sample Letter and E mail Addresses Included in Post




Update 01/03/10:

It has been noted that campaigners have been having some problems with regard the one large e mail listing originally provided.

We have been in contact with the originator of this listing and we can confirm that there should not be any problems with the addresses given; all have been checked and are ok.

But there may be a problem if all are copied en masse and sent in just one block.  So what will be seen below now is that the one original block listing has been divided into three blocks.

It is a little more work on your part, but now it is asked if the sample letter can be sent out three times; in accordance with the addresses in each block below.

It is hoped that this will make life easier and that all the mails will be delived without any comeback or failure errors.  If there are still failures, then at least the problem addresses can be traced down to one address or some of those in (any one of) the smaller blocks which make up the three. 

This three block mail route has been checked out as a trial today (01/03) and there have not been any problems.  It is hoped that you do not encounter any.


Please send a copy of the sample letter to all the addresses given in each of the three block listings below. 

It is hoped this will stop any error messages being returned to sender.

Block 1:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Block 2:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Block 3:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

PROTEST  CANILE  PLEASE!  – Sample Letter Below.

SAMPLE LETTER TO COPY AND SEND x3 – each letter copy to all the contacts listed in Blocks 1, 2 or 3 above.

Please feel free to copy and attach a few photographs to your mails also.

 Thanks – SAV.


Dear  Madame or Sir,

You are representing your country and its  interests abroad. I think you might feel concerned about a serious topic which throws a negative light on Italy.

The disastrous situation in regard to abandoned dogs in the so called “canile” makes me and many people around me think twice about going on holiday to Italy, even to buy any Italian products. There is no doubt that the terrible and disgusting so called  “concentration camps” for dogs is bound to profit from thirst for money.

Catching dogs and keeping them in terrible conditions bring millions to some people who pursue this bloody business in collaboration with local politicians.

Why does Italy not spend that money on neutering or sterilization of dogs so as to stop their uncontrolled breeding ?

Any normal human being who has seen the cruelty of Italian dogs in these places can never again feel at comfort while travelling to Italy or buying Italian products.

Who would be able to still enjoy a holiday in Italy or take pleasure on eating Italian dishes and drinking Italian wine while having knowledge of incredible pain and sorrow which dogs in canile must endure?!  The only fault of these dogs is to have been born as dogs in Italy – a country that apparently does not care at all for animals.

 Italy, the land of Christianity, the residence of the Pope, the land of Canile! Canile, where unbearable suffering of dogs feeds the ever growing greed for money.

It is hard to believe that those beautiful Italian people with their beautiful culture, beautiful music and beautiful seaside, who go on Sundays to their beautiful churches and send their prayers to God are treating their dogs in a way that even an animal itself would not do.

More and more people realize what is going on and there will be accountability sooner or later. And there is  no  way  to completely hide this hell no matter how many people are involved.

They keep  the gates of canile shut for visitors, they employ foreigners who fear for their jobs, they drive away animal helpers from abroad.

I myself, am determined not to travel to Italy or to buy anything it comes from Italy until canile is replaced by animal shelters where dogs are treated well. Until then I will certainly do everything I can to let as many people as possible know what is going on in “bella Italia”.

So, if you really want to make a difference, then do it right now!

Best regards

Yours sincerely,
