According to Dr. Dusan Lalosevic, director of the "Louis Pasteur" institute, there is no epidemic of rabies in Serbia for last 30 years!

Ministarstvo poljoprivrede, sumarsta i vodoprivrede Srbije donelo je resenje br. 323-02-5571/2013-05 od 10.07.2013. godine kojim podrucje mesta Zabrezje, u opstini Obrenovac i u lovistu "Posavina", proglasava ZARAZENIM OD ZARAZNE BOLESTI BESNILA.
Podrucje od najmanje 10 kilometara od zarista proglasava se ugrozenim od zarazne bolesti besnila. Prema odluci Ministarstvo poljoprivrede Srbije bice ubijeni svi neobelezeni i nevakcinisani psi i macke bez vlasnika i bice pojacan odstrel lisica i drugih divljih zivotinja koje zive na tom podrucju.
Molimo nadlezne da JAVNO PRUZE NA UVID DOKAZE O BESNILU! Na ovaj nacin se ne moze legalizovati ubijanje zivotinja bez vlasnika, umesto da se one adekvatno zbrinu.
Ovaj problem mora da se resi u skladu sa zakonom. Zivotinje bez vlasnika, kao i divlje zivotinje, ne smeju se lisavati zivota dok se ne uradi tacna analiza i utvrdi pravo cinjenicno stanje.
Molimo nadlezne da hitno reaguju! Ne širite strah, paniku i mrznju prema zivotinjama.

Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of Serbia adopted the legislation No. 323-02-5571/2013-05 from 10/07/2013 that the area of Zabrezje in Obrenovac, and in hunting ground "Posavina", PROCLAIMS INFECTED WITH CONTAGIOUS ANIMAL DISEASE RABIES.

According to the decision of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, all unmarked and unvaccinated stray dogs and cats will be killed and will be increased hunting of foxes and other wild animals who are living in this area.

Our request is that you in accordance with the law solve this problem! Stray animal, as well as wild animals, should not be killed before the accurate analysis is done and determine the facts.
Please respond urgently! Do not spread fear and panic, and hatred towards animals.

MESSAGE FROM EPAR - TRANSLATION:
"Here, it seems corruption continues. IT SEEMS THAT SOME POWERFUL PERSON DECIDED TO BUY OLD FACTORY BUILDING AND TO BUILD A HOTEL THERE, SO IT'S ORDERED RABIES TO REMOVE DOGS AND CATS.
It's always about the money, when corrupt people are doing something they pay to be done on their way, they do not care for laws. Therefore, we still have irresponsible animal owners, animal fights, trade with protected species, deforestation, illegal killing and exportation of dogs and cats. All this is allowed by unscrupulous inspectors, so after we have unimplemented laws in which they swear.
It is shameful."
HEADLINES AND NEWS
THE MUNICIPALITY OBRENOVAC OFFICIAL STATEMENT: "THERE ARE NO HUNTERS IN THE TOWN WHO ARE KILLING DOGS" - July 18 2013
Zoohigijena and Belgrade Veterinary service work to solve this problem. All dogs and cats suspected to be infected with rabies will be taken to the quarantine for observation. No need to create panic, there are no hunters in the town who are killing dogs. Currently over 50% dogs are vaccinated, and by the end of the action we expect that about 90% of animals will be vaccinated in contaminated area.
RABIES DECLARED FOR GOOD PROFIT, July 17 2013
The Ministry of Agriculture has ordered in Obrenovac the killing of dogs and cats without owner for alleged rabies!
OBRENOVAC - ORDERED THE SLAUGHTER OF ALL UNMARKED AND UNVACCINATED DOGS AND CATS. Although the EU for years give millions Euros for vaccination against rabies, Serbian Ministry of Agriculture declared area of Zabrezje in Obrenovac infected by the deadly disease rabies - which raises the question how this is possible despite all control measures.
In the infected area is ordered: the killing of all dogs and cats without owner and the prohibition of slaughter and sale of meat products. Danica Drobac, president of the EUROPEAN INITIATIVE 17, says that RABIES IN OBRENOVAC IS SUSPICIOUS, IT IS FALSE, MONEY FOR VACCINATION IS MISSPENT.
PROTEST IN OBRENOVAC, July 17. 2013
Animal lovers from Obrenovac organized 17th July the protest in front of the municipality office, to prevent mass killing of healthy stray animals, with the pretext of rabies.
If the rabies declared 10 July, how the next day could be hold traditional fair there, with dozens of slaughtered animals on a skewer - said Danica Drobac.
According to the organizers, RABIES" WAS USED FOR YEARS AS EXCUSE, EVERY TIME WHEN THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TO GET RID OF STRAY DOGS.
We demand systematic solution and to build animal shelter in Obrenovac, whose main task will be sterilization and postoperative recovery of stray dogs. Only in this way we can solve the problem permanently - organizers of protest said.
RABIES EPIDEMIC IN OBRENOVAC, MASS KILLING OF DOGS IN THE CITY?
BELGRADE VETERINARY SERVICE STATEMENT: Information about deliberately proclamation of rabies to remove and kill dogs, also the photos of dead dogs which some media released, are false and are aimed to cause panic and discontent, which in this particular situation is inappropriate, because rabies is a dangerous disease and is necessary to act responsibly.
Thank you dear Julie!!!
The petition SERBIA IMPLEMENT EXISTING ANIMAL WELFARE LEGISLATION TO PROTECT STRAYS has been closed and delivered to the Serbian Government.
This is formal response from the Ministry of Agriculture to my letter DO NOT CHANGE ANIMAL WELFARE LAW IN SERBIA
On 04/09/2013 you sent an e-mail to the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management in which you expressed the view that the Conference about the welfare of abandoned animals, organized by TAIEX and Veterinary management on 17.04.2013, should not be held because it is an attempt to make changes to the Animal Welfare Law, relating to the ban of killing animals.
We inform you that the Conference on this issue is of great importance and it is opportunity to meet Directors of Veterinary management from this region, representatives of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), representatives of the European Commission and the RSPCA - all to talk about the problem of abandoned animals. The aim of this Conference was to share experiences of countries in the region related to the problem of stray animals, control of their population, the role and responsibilities of government agencies and non-governmental organizations.
The allegations from some animal welfare organizations are incorrect - who are calling for protest rallies and petitions against the Serbian authorities, NGO organizations and speakers at this Conference - because, as stated above, this Conference hasn't been organized as "attempt" to make changes in the existing Animal Welfare Law, but rather for better implementation of same.
Veterinary management has good cooperation with many well-meaning animal welfare associations and non-governmental organizations, of which some actively participate and provide help to us in achieving our mutual goal of animal welfare.

Thank everyone who signed this petition and made it a success. Serbian government didn't change Animal welfare law and no-kill to kill policy.
I'm pleased to announce that Serbian government has also adopted the new Law which (for the first time in the history of Serbian legislation!) provide protective measure of confiscation and ban from keeping animals. Implementation of these Law will protect Serbian animals from future harm!

This facility saved over 1000 dogs, and was no other choice because the policy of the state and city Subotica was, as now, to kill, just to kill. Irresponsible people who didn't want to solve the problem of abandoned animals humanely - sterilization and responsible ownership - were never punish. We are aware, in this facility are not excellent conditions but in which Serbian shelters are. We also know that shelter ALEX is one of the few in Serbia that has humane conditions, and in the time when was established was the only one. In last two years a large number of animals were sterilized, many lost pets were returned to their owners thanks to shelter ALEX, they show us the right path and will to work.

Thanks Desanka, petitions signed, emails going now.
the Norwegian company Spectrum is launching large scale seismic surveys in the Adriatic Sea in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Croatia (about 35,000 km of marine surface). These activities mark the start of a new rush for oil and gas resources in the Adriatic Sea and receive strong criticism from international conservation organizations. OceanCare, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the «Silent Oceans» campaign partners raise concerns over extreme underwater noise which can be expected to harm and displace marine life. The NGOs also question the procedural steps in the run-up to the surveys.

Hi Desanka signed too thank you
All Signed and up to date here Desanka. Thank you x
Petitions signed and letter sent Desanka, thanks from the deep my heart. If you don't mind I like to post some news that I received regarding the urgent issue of the stray dogs in Romania, I will use the translatore of google because my english doesn't go far away.
The Romanian ambassador in Italy, His Excellency Mr Dana- Manuela Constantinescu , received this morning the president of Save the Dogs and other Animals Sara Turetta and the president of the ENPA, National Agency for Animal Protection Carla Rocchi . Subject of the meeting the recent approval by the House of the Romanian Parliament of the law that provides for the killing of all stray after 14 days of presence within the public kennels . The request was met face to face after the joint letter addressed to the ambassador by the two non-profit organizations and a few days after the written request of four senators to the Senate President Peter Grasso and Foreign Minister Emma Bonino why get involved in this situation with the Romanian Government and the appropriate European locations .
Sara Turetta Carla Rocchi and have it delivered to Constantinescu photos of the protests all over Europe have been raised against the measure and stressed the serious damage suffered by Romania 's international image when the law was enacted.
"The meeting took place in an atmosphere of great cordiality - comments Turetta - and I had the opportunity to present in a diffuse way the principles underlying the operation of our association and the issues that are dear to organizations across Europe : I reiterated it takes an integrated approach , acting simultaneously on the stray and owned dogs , and a collaboration between the institutions and animal welfare organizations . "
The president of Animal Protection , however , has focused on Italian legislation at the request of the ambassador , which has proved extremely sensitive and interested in the issues related to the protection of animals . " Enpa is at the side of the Romanian authorities and associations of those who want to engage actively to solve the problem of stray dogs in Romania ," said Rocchi during the meeting. Ambassador Constantinescu , for his part , recalled an episode that saw directly involved in Bucharest, where three dogs sterilized and well-loved in his neighborhood were ( to his chagrin ) removed following the protests of some residents . The diplomatic said she was aware that this removal has in fact given way to the arrival of new strays. Finally, Constantinescu has guaranteed to the associations a personal interest in the Romanian authorities and is committed to report on the contents of the meeting with their representatives in Bucharest.
The so-called law "kill- stray " was passed in haste on 10 September by the House of the Romanian Parliament in the wake caused by the emotional ordeal of the death of a 4 year old child , allegedly mauled by some stray dogs on the outskirts of Bucharest .
Following the vote of Parliament, 16 September, 30 senators supported by some animal welfare organizations had appealed to the Constitutional Court momentary getting the hang of the law. Reason of unconstitutionality would be too great a disparity between the law passed a few days ago and the one under discussion for the past 24 months. Indeed, Parliament has come in a few hours to vote after two years in which a law for the management of stray dogs had been stuck to the Committee on Public Affairs despite protests from animal rights activists.
Consultations to assess the eligibility of the law by the Constitutional Court will begin Wednesday, September 25 .
Thank you so much Sara! We are all waiting for news from Romania.

From Bosnian newspapers - brief translation
Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina organized 03.10. 2013 the public hearing about the Animals Welfare Law and the proposed possibility to euthanize homeless animals after 15 days in shelters.
All participants agreed that the Law, passed 2009, is good but they were doubtful about its implementation. On this public hearing was many representatives of government, commerce and veterinary colleges and NGO organizations - and divided opinions and discussion about the changes of the Law.
Possibility to euthanize stray animals caused the big storm. This proposal opposed by a large number of non-governmental humanitarian organizations, sponsored by foreign donors.
"I think, any law that is being discussed in BiH Parliament has not caused the attention of the international community as this one, especially of international welfare organizations that pressure us not to change the Law" - said Nermina Zaimovic- Uzunovic - who proposed the euthanasia of animals in shelters. She added that "for her the life of one child is more important than all the dogs".
"Bull fighting are strictly prohibited by our Law, but we witnesses that tens thousands of people gather to watch this fights, it's a tradition in BiH and should be legalized because it is not bloodthirsty fight like in Spain" - said also Nermina Zaimovic-Uzunovic.
In the last days BiH Parliament was covered up with protest emails of various organizations, and people, especially from Germany, Malaysia, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, England, France and Italy, who are very concerned about the fate of Bosnian stray dogs.
The people from profession believes that such a law threatened the basic rights of animals.
THERE WAS NO CONCLUSION. ALL ABOVE WAS PROVIDED AS A RECORD, AND VOTING ON PROPOSED CHANGES OF THE ANIMAL WELFARE LAW MOST LIKELY WILL BE ON 23/10/2013.
Hi Desanka signed all tha petitions .Saw that poor puppy without face i am so upset right now. Monsters , you can not call those humans who did such a thing to that poor poor a dog .
Signed everything , thanks Desanka
Done. There should be more Desankas in the world !

Justice for 2 stray dogs used as bait!!!
Daniel is 16 year-old boy from Serbia. In 2011, he posted on his FB page video in which he kicks one kitten.
To people who condemned him for animal cruelty he left threatening comments, that he is going to slaughter them as he slaughtered dogs.
But after the Police filed a criminal charge against Daniel, for killing and torturing animals and for incitement of national, racial or religious hatred, he told: "I did not train my dogs to be bloodthirsty. I'm so scared!" and "I feel like I've killed someone, I'm afraid that somebody will kill me now".
Serbian animal welfare organization ORPAK, from city Krusevac, is in a very difficult situation. The owner of the house, in which they had a small shelter for animals, kicked them out. They beg people to adopt and Serbian animal shelters to help and foster their animals.
ON 20 OCTOBER 30 CATS AND DOGS (MOSTLY BABIES!) WILL BE ON THE STREET, TO FREEZE AND STARVE. No one wants to help them.
If you can help with a small donation, or to SHARE this appeal!!!

The situation with abandoned animals in Velika Gorica Croatia) is critical. There is only one shelter that is funded through donations, which is because the large number of abandoned animals, simply unsustainable. Please take steps so Velika Gorica will get NO KILL shelter (shelter where the animals are not killed after 60 days).
The Animal Protection Act states that the animal can be killed after 60 days.
In Croatia, unfortunately there are only 5 NO KILL shelter, which is sad statistics regarding the number of shelters in Croatia.
We, animal rights organization "Udruga za prava Zivotinja", and a group of concerned citizens, ask you to take the time and finances to help that town Velika Gorica get shelter that will not kill animals.

The unfortunate dog adopted by a boy who until recently lived in poverty
The boy Janos and his dad were lived in inhumane conditions - in the house where at any moment could fall down the roof and in which were many rats. Through the media about their situation heard the whole Serbia and money was collected to build them a new home.
At the same time, thanks to the media also, was saved ten-month-old stray dog to whom someone put a sewer pipe at the neck. For him was looking the whole city! After the dog was finally captured, the wounds of a sewer pipe has been repaired.
Little Janos and his dad has heard that the dog now is in the city pound. Since the fortune smiled at them and now have safe home, they thought it is their turn to help this unfortunate creature!
Janos: I'm very happy, I'll call him Zuca or Bole!
Their first dog Zuca killed the neighbors with a shovel, which, of course, was not convicted for animal cruelty!
The boy has never forgotten his beloved pet, at least not until today. Now they live in another area, away from people who hate animals.
Sorry for bad Google translation

In this moment, the worst things are happening in public shelter in Serbian city Leskovac:
The worker, who was no longer able to look the conditions in which dogs live, shared this story with the media, and after she was fired. This shelter does not have food, water and electricity. Workers are using a flashlight to see the dogs in cramped cages. It's up to the mayor now ...
Serbia is a sad country to live, both for people and animals, and we go further into the abyss.
English text in the end!
It is like a never ending horror show. After an hour of working on animal cruelty matters, I feel like watching a "horror movie" on T.V. as a form of light entertainment and relaxation !

THE BRUTAL TORTURE OF HORSES IN SERBIA | Take Action!
Please sign the petition and send the protest letter!!!
SAV: UPDATE 14/1/14 –
We first had this disgusting video footage sent to us this last weekend – now we have followed up urgently and we are pleased to say that:
The police of Valjevo city have now been following up this footage – as a result they have worked with the Public Attorney of Moinica City who gave an official report of the incident on National television on 10.1.2014. We understand that all persons involved in this incident who undertook this animal abuse and caused suffering have now been arrested and will be charged under Article 269 of Serbian law for animals. This has a maximum punishment of 3 years in jail.
Whilst we do not expect anyone to be sent to jail for 3 years, it is hoped by us and many others that the prompt action since the weekend will send a clear message to the communities that animal abuse will not be tolerated. If Serbia wishes to join the EU as a member state, then it really / seriously needs to address the issue of working to the good animal welfare laws which it currently has in place; rather than keep ignoring them. We have shown enough examples on this site where the laws are just ignored for the benefit of some, whilst the animals continue to suffer.
This is a start of actions which we very much hope will now continue.
Well done the Serbian campaigners who have worked so hard with us over the last few days to get a quick and positive result. They know who they are.
Thanks Desanka, petition signed, emails sent.

OCCUPY FOR ANIMALS, January 16
EXTRAORDINARY NEWS from Bosnia & Herzegovina!
Important update from Sandra Jensen: The Legal-Constitutional committee of the House of Peoples were in session and they DID NOT ACCEPT the kill-law amendments to the animal welfare act! Instead the Council of Ministers, the BiH Government, prepare an action plan for the implementation of the existing law!
PLEASE NOTE that this is not the final vote on the law.
The next session of House of People is going to be held on 24th January. There is HOPE, however, as the delegates for the House of Peoples rarely legislate a law for which the committee has given a negative opinion.
We are in a good position, but this victory is only one step in this next part of the legislative process, and we need to keep campaigning and we need to loudly express our hope that the delegates will respect the decision of the committee, and that if the amendments are NOT legislated, then we must keep pressure that the existing animal welfare act (which is a very good one) be implemented as per the committee's recommendations.
I am awaiting further instructions from the activists in BiH. But for now, all I can say, is a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone involved and of course to the members of the Committee...
Great news thank you Desanka
Thanks Desanka, very good.

Lumi Asani is a dog fighter from Albania, currently living in Macedonia. He posted so many disturbing photos of injured and dead dogs that Facebook removed him. He is back now on Facebook and selling pit-bulls for fights. This needs to be stopped!
Signed & noted - thank you Desanka.
Desanka, the link for Senka does not work properly. It takes me to a Facebook page that has nothing about Senka on it.
Signed Desanka - thank you
Signed everything as you posted in the other group- Thank you
We are currently working on a sample letter which we will ask you to copy and e mail to the Mayor of the city. This will be posted on SAV site in the next few days.
It hurts so much to see and read all the torture, neglect, abuse, starving to death and killing our best friends cats and dogs. And not forget all the other animals who dying cruesome.
Signed now all what I could.
Dear Desanka you must be an angel in your Country what you are doing for the animals.
And a big thank you to all friends here to help signing all petitions.
Dear Sue, the link for Senka (Shadow in engl.) is OK. It takes you to Facebook news in English about this poor doggie (the animal welfare organization ZOOPlanet had picked up her from the street and now they need donations for her post-operative care, accommodation and food).
Here are new photos of Senka after the surgery. Her leg had to be amputated all the way to the shoulder’s joint because of the infection.
PayPal donation for Senka
ZOOPlanet volunteers are real animal heroes! Recently, they saved the unfortunate dog which in a mysterious way made his way into an inaccessible part of the construction site deep over 4 meters.
Thank you so much Thomas for your kind words, and all Care2'ers for helping animals around the world.
A big welldone and a bravo to those great volunteers who saved her life.
God bless them. There are still good peoplke who care about all those poor animals
Signed all I can right now - thanks all - so so sad.

Great news- Thanks Desanka
Fantastic news re German Shepards Thankyou so much
Wonderful news - thank you Desanka.
It's so lovely to get some good news from all our hard work. Thanks for posting the good news Desanka.
Desanka, the link for Senka does not take me to news about her. I get taken to a page that has the favourites of the Udruzenje ZooPlanet page on the left hand side and a list of others with similar names on Facebook on the right hand side. There are no links to go to any other parts of their page. Thanks for the update, I'm glad she is doing well after surgery. Maybe as I'm banned from Facebook (they think I am a corporation) I cannot get to the right page?
Thank you Desanka for this wonderful news.

Hi Desanka, I just came across the petition "Stop HAJCi-Stop Killing Of Stray Dogs-Support Life"
How very disheartening & upsetting. This petotion was started on 10/24/2011!!! I was only #218 or #219 on the whole petition! What's up with that? Why doesn't anyone pay attention & sign these so very important petitions, it's heartbreaking!
Thank you Desanka for all you do & I will keep on signing & sharing!
Up to date thanks
Potpisano Desanka. Onu peticiju za Jadran potrebno je opet napisati i saÄekati na 25.5.2014 jer Äe tad biti izbori za Europski parlament. Sad ovaj naš Slovenac - PotoÄnik, neÄe ništa napravit, zato je bolje, da se saÄeka i da vidimo, ko Äe bit izvoljen i tad se napravi samo nov target.
Desanka hvala puno za sve što radiš.

This is good owner, Petar took a loan for this billboard, he also took a vacation to look for his dog, and he would sell even the apartment to find his beloved Zuca!
The power of love and respect for the animal that is in each of your signature will help that Serbian army easier access to the adoption of these eight beautiful German Shepherd dogs, who will finally find its rightful peace with honest and honorable people!!! The dogs were housed in desperate conditions on farms-laboratory for experiments of MILITARY ACADEMIC CLINIC in Belgrade! Time passes and these dogs are in suffering and loneliness!!!!
signed, I'm up to date again.
Took action on the petitions and noted news- thank you
