Romania: Dogs Left to Starve in the City Pound of Botosani – Sample Letter to Send – Please Act Now.

Dogs left to starve in the city’s pound of Botosani

Please click on the following link to gain additional video footage:  

In May this year were over 200 dogs killed in one night at this municipal enclosure. People protested in Romania and all over Europe and the mayor promised to repent.

Now, the municipal mayor and the shelter manager instead let the dogs starve and die. Abandoned and neglected.

What about, the area of ethic, morality and animal laws?

They are starving for at least two weeks, the guards have confirmed that nobody brought them food. From the photos one can see that even the feces are no where on the ground, not that anybody cleaned. These dogs are just a bag of bones and can barely stand.

They have been brought in from the streets healthy and playful. Now they are dying.

The puppies are placed in a death box, where the Parvo virus is still present, because this virus disappears only after 6 months and is resistant to the common disinfection. Not that is has ever been done any disinfection.

Some die, some are brought in this continuous circuit of death. Once there the little ones die in maximum one week due to the diarrhoea, vomiting and dehidratation.

They are not fed at all, why for, if they will eventually die anyway. Any puppy arrived there, even if adopted later on, extremely weak, not vaccinated, will die despite all the efforts put in place to save them.

They are starving for at least two weeks, the guards have confirmed that nobody brought them food. From the photos one can see that even the feces are no where on the ground, not that anybody cleaned. These dogs are just a bag of bones and can barely stand.

Please take action!

SUBJECT : Please stop the torture of stray dogs in the city’s shelter in Botosani

Dear sirs,

I am sending you this protest letter, because I have had enough with the obvious unwillingness of Romanian authorities to solve the problem of strays overpopulation in a civilized, humane manner, as recommended by the European Convention, The World Health Organization as well as major international organizations for animal welfare and protection.

What has surfaced again from the city of BOTOSANI, about the way stray dogs are held in the city’s pound without FOOD and WATER for weeks, about the fact that the pound is LOCKED all the time, people who would like to go and visit and adopt need written approval, the fact that the local animal protection association (ADOR) and volunteers who want to help those poor innocent animals are denied access, the photos of STARVING animals and over crowded kennels, is one more example of the barbaric way Romania treats animals and of the fact that Romanian elected officials and authorities (DVS, POLICE) supposed to implement the laws of the land, show a total disregard towards them and total indifference about the image Romania has in the world now.

We know what happens in Romania – do you?!/botosani-urgent!-3755267

People from around the world are outraged by the attitude of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Sanitary-Veterinary county officials, Botosani Police with regard to this DEATH CAMP which is the city pound.

Yet, the same officials continue to pay from the public money, salaries to dog catchers, care takers, and probably a veterinarian who can’t wait to find a new reason to “euthanise” hundreds of animals again.

We are determined to protest to the EU Parliament and to ask that sanctions will be imposed on Romania for the way animals are treated, for the fact that international Conventions and recommendations are not followed by Romanian authorities and for the fact that even Romanian laws in force are not applied.

We did not forget the horrible mass killing of 230 dogs in just a couple of hours in May 2011.

Please take all the necessary measure to close this death camp which is the city pound of Botosani, once and for all, and to collaborate with Romanian and International Animal Protection associations who are more than willing to help the stray dogs in your town and county.

Please start a mandatory sterilization campaign in your town and county as soon as possible and show the world that Romanians are still capable of compassion and able to solve the problem of strays overpopulation in a humane and civilized manner as expected from a civilized country, member of the EU in the 21st century.

Please allow access to the city’s pound to anybody willing to visit, every day, like in all civilized countries in the world, and please let those who really love and care for the animals to take care of those poor victims of such a barbaric mentality.

Thank you very much.
