Focus:Animal Welfare
Action Request:Protest
Location:Bosnia And Herzegovina

According to information we have received from activists in Sarajevo, we learned that on October 5, 2013 the Bosnian Government will be making changes  in the Animal Protection Law. Based on our experience, this type of modifications doesn’t usually do any good for the animals.  


The Government has already tried to do something similar a few months ago by proposing euthanasia of stray animals after only 15 days of their stay in  the city pounds. 

Fortunately, this decision was never accepted and we want it to stay that way - permanently.  
Pressure from the people and the Bosnian Government for this problem to be solved on the most brutal way is rising each day and is probably 
stimulated by the Romanian Government’s decision to kill all their stray dogs.  

We must stress out the information that the Bosnian Government has never implemented their Animal Protection Law from 2009. 

That is why we need to keep our pressure on them to start doing their job properly and stop the needless suffering of Bosnian street dogs and cats.

Please send this protestmail, eventually divided over 2 mailaccounts, or days, because of the load of mailaddresses!   

Subject :Bosnian Government, Start implementing the correct Animal Protection Law!    



Sir, Madam, To whom it concerns:



With this letter I want to express my disappointment with the Bosnian government in terms of the planned actions to be taken in order to 'solve the problem' of abandoned street animals.



If I understand correctly, you want to change the law for the worse and that is absolutely unacceptable. We do not live during the medieval ages; so I'm asking you to tackle this problem in a civilized, humane and ethically accepted manner, applied in western Europe for decades, and proven to work!

I am fully aware that the co-existence of abandoned dogs, kicked out on the streets, and people is a tough challenge and incidents do occur. 

I have seen many attempts to solve this situation in either an aggressive or peaceful manner.

http://www.avaz.ba/vijesti/sarajevo/skolska-dvorista-puna-copora-opasnih-pasa   
This is why I kindly ask you to finally apply the following most important proposal in 7 steps:

1. Establish mandatory micro-chipping for all dogs in urban and rural areas (including information about the owner, breeder or kennel they come from). It is necessary to know which animal belongs to whom when it is found abandoned or mistreated and abused so it can be returned to its owner if lost or to punish the owner for the abandonment and negligence.
2. Ensure proper enforcement of micro-chipping including:
- Mandatory spaying and neutering of all dogs, no matter whether they have owners or not, to minimize the risk of having new unwanted puppies/kittens, left on the streets
Neutering is the only correct solution, being humane, cheaper and efficient to prevent more abandoned dogs on the street.
- Ensure that the abandonment of dogs and cats is a criminal offence (if you do not punish irresponsible owners, they will throw puppies/kittens and older, or sick animals, out on the streets as always, that is the main cause of this problem!)
- Veterinarians are obliged to give warnings to the owner if their animal is not micro-chipped and to alert local authorities when the owner refuses to micro-chip its animals.
3. Start an integrated mass-sterilization program at a national level. Join forces with capable NGOs.4-PAWS f.e.
4. Establish adoption centers. 
5. Start media partnerships to encourage adoptions at a national and international level.
6. Punish all who abuse, torture or neglect of animals (harming an animal is a first step to harm a child or adult).
7. We demand that you do things in accordance with the Law, and after four years of its existence, to start fully implementing it. 

If you apply this, people will follow you. It will take some time, patience and efforts, but it is a rewarding job, both for people and animals.   

For your society as a whole.

Yours sincerely,

Visibility: Everyone
