From website Animal Rescue Sofia : www.arsofia.org

The minister of agriculture Мiroslav Naidenov announced today that it is being thought about a return to mass euthanasia as a method of dealing with the stray dog population.
The former boss of Ecobalance also blamed NGO’s for the stray dog population.

When the municipalities and the central government aren’t doing their jobs and instead spend years in theft and slacking;

When their despicable slacking is escalating;
 

When ACTA is quietly being pushed through, the Belene power-plant and gas fracking plans become a topic for the citizens;

When children are dying on the streets of our cities and the government begins to look worse and worse to people;
 

Then the time has come to KILL THE DOGS!

Then the Bulgarians will not be asking “What did you spend all that money on?” or “Why did you do nothing about the problem for years?” they will repeat “Let’s KILL THE DOGS!” as a mantra and not have a single doubt.
Without any discussion minister Naydenov  decided “Concentration camps will be built for the dogs. There are dogs on the street only because of those crazy NGO’s – it’s their fault!”. “KILL THE DOGS!” – what a great slogan for an uneducated nation. A nation of obedient folk. Deaf and dumb, not asking any questions, as long as they get to KILL THE DOGS!

Spay/Neuter and Return is not working? Oh, so you know better than the World Health Organization? Please, than be so kind to return all the budget you have used so far for those useless municipal companies that spend 400E on mowing a decare of land. And dearest representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, please be so kind and give back those millions you ghave received for the non-existant dog-registry database. And then you may blame us. Then you may yell “KILL THE DOGS!”

Our apoogies, her minister. But you have greatly miscalculated things. The people of Bulgaria are not a bunch of blind idiots. Our nation doesn’t consist only of blood-thirsty journalists.  Bulgarians can think, they can see and they have travelled. We are Europeans. And when you, ladies and gentlemen of the government, are trying to lie to us. When you are washing your hands in the blood of the poor professor Tachkov, then it is NOT TIME TO  KILL THE DOGS!

PLEASE SIGN AND SHARE THIS PETITION

and state a clear NO to the hault of Spay/Neuter and return.

Fantastic News – Mickey Rourke to Build Animal Shelter in Romania

Mickey Rourke to Build Animal Shelter in Romania

By Lisa Spector

The stray dogs of Romania have been a problem since the 1980′s. Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu banned Romanian citizens from having pets. It didn’t take long for unneutered homeless dogs to create an epidemic that has turned into 50,000 dogs living on the streets of Romania. Some starve to death, others freeze, and all would benefit from human companionship, a warm bed, and dog food.

In November of 2011, the Romanian government passed a law that made it legal for any homeless animal to be euthanized. Care2 members, known for their passion for animals, started a petition asking the government to educate the public on the benefits of spaying and neutering instead of killing innocent dogs.

On January 31, 2012 the Romanian court declared the euthanizing of stray dogs as unconstitutional. While animal rights activists were pleased with that turn of events, they have still be wanting to help all of the stray animals.

As luck would have it, Mickey Rourke, a huge dog lover with a pension for helping dogs in need, was in the country filming “Dead in Tombstone” when a stray dog walked onto the set. He decided to adopt the dog and donate $250,000 of his own money to build a shelter the size of a football field for the strays.

When accepting his Golden Globe award in 2009, Rourke thanked his current and deceased dogs. He has also been quoted as saying, “I truly believe God created dogs for a cause. They are the greatest companions a man could ever have.” It’s so heartwarming to remember that one person can truly make a difference.

Although I don’t have Rourke’s pocketbook to fund a shelter, I do what I can to help homeless dogs by donating music that is clinically demonstrated to calm the canine nervous system to shelters and rescue organizations. Dogs in 1,500 shelters in the U.S. and abroad are being calmed to my piano playing on the Through a Dog’s Ear recordings. It’s helping create a quieter shelter environment, which encourages visitors to stay longer, and consequently adoption rates increase. While the music won’t solve the homeless canine problem in Romania, it will hopefully help the dogs move quickly from the shelter environment into their forever homes.

Watch how the dogs in the Santa Fe Animal Shelter respond to the music. Even though I don’t know how to say sit or stay in Romanian, music is a universal language, and I hope music can be a part of Mickey Rourke’s new shelter in Romania.
