Goran dogcatcher petition


Please take time out and support this important petition about the hundreds of dogs which are being caught and then disappearing within a few days.  Our friend Goran provides the full details below – these are his words.  We have provided the petition link twice for you.  Please support and crosspost – Thanks.

We are running several petitions at the moment; as we feel that this is the only real way to show the EU, the Macedonian and also the Serbian authorities that the situation is serious and they cannot go on forever telling lies to a watching world.  The massive international support of the petitions shows just how much interest people are taking in every move the authorities make.

We have also provided links to all of the current petitions that we have running for the EU, Macedonia and also Serbia.  You can find them all at the end of this post. – SAV.

Goran dogcatcher petition

 Goran Explains the Current Situation:

We demand the immediate stop of the dog catcher!

Regularly in place Svilajnac / Serbia ordered to street dogs the dog catchers capture.

These animals end up in a shelter where they die under suspicious circumstances after 2-3 days. Many of the captured dogs are just gone. It is alleged they have been vaccinated, neutered and released.

That’s not true!

None of the trapped dog has surfaced again.

There is a reasonable suspicion that dogs are killed.

Serbia has a NO KILL law and we demand that the Serbian guidelines are observed with respect to the Animal Welfare Act.

We also ask for details of the whereabouts of the trapped dogs.

We are currently planning a castration campaign in place Svilajnac to the population to master. This is not possible if the sterilized through our association dogs are caught and killed.

We appeal to adjust to the Mayor of the city Svilajnac to end this cruelty to animals with immediate effect.

We would also like to know the whereabouts of the dogs have been caught in the past 2 months.

We will no longer look like Serbian legislation is circumvented and, if necessary, contact us to higher authority within the EU to these atrocities and unnecessary behavior to end.

Serbia: Momo’s Story – From Shelter Azil Alex.

Please keep signing those petitions !



Mike has recently produced this excellent rapp recording for the dogs at Shelter Azil Alex, Subotica.

Azil Alex

Momo’s story.

Momo is a dog who came in the shelter in 2012.
He was like an ugly duckling. Unlike other abandoned and discarded dogs that roam the streets trying to survive, Momo was bypassed by all. No one wanted to approach him, let alone dare to pet him. Children did not know what kind of creature he was, and the parents firmly kept them away from him.

Without the hand of salvation his days were numbered.


Then, one day, on a tip that some skinny, dirty and hairless dog is in the yard of the kindergarten, volunteers from the shelter “Alex” went to see how they can help him.

That day was a turning point in Momo’s life.

It was the chance he has been waiting and hoping for so long as time and people passed by him, and his condition was getting worse.

With less than a year old, Momo was diagnosed with tick borne disease and Demodex. He was immediately placed under treatment and volunteers were only hoping that it wasn’t too late. Momo, however, was lost and scared, but the gentle touch of a human hand and bowls of food made the fear slowly disappear, and the faith in people was gained back.

Over time, from ugly duckling Momo has become a real beauty. He overcame the tick-borne disease, and Demodex was gone as well. His white creamy coat is now long and thick. By nature he is very active and cheerful, and he uses his second chance to the fullest. He likes long walks and is a very good guard.

There’s just one wish that Momo has: his own home. If he could find his family Momo’s story would indeed have a happy ending. Although he does not get well with the other animals, with children he is excellent, and we are sure to somebody he would be an ideal new family member.

Momo is vaccinated, chipped, neutered and ready to be someone’s loyal friend for life.
