Preşedintele Băsescu a propus ca prin lege să fie stabilit un termen în care persoanele care doresc să adopte câinii maidanezi să o poată face, iar animalele neadoptate în acest termen să fie eutanasiate. Sunteţi de acord cu propunerea preşedintelui ?

Ce credeți că ar trebui făcut cu câinii fără stăpân din Capitală?

Mutați în adăposturi canine


Ar trebui să fie lăsați în pace

Dați în grija unor stăpâni, în urma unor campanii de adopție

Nu mă interesează

All signed and voted action taken, thanks Desanka! What I can't believe is on the second vote
What should be done with stray dogs in Bucharest? over 60 % voted for Euthanasia/kill them
My opinion on this is that vote would be manipulated, because so many People cannot be so dumb.
Really poor dogs, my heart bleeds for every killed one of them, and I will cy a river.

Whew - I want to know how Mm M got through all 35 in just an hour. I added comments to all of mine and got waylaid by watching videos about how far the little boy was away from his Grandmother, and the ones about the poor dogs. I even got caught up in sending out tons of e-mails on the one page! It took me over 3 hours to do all that. I'm wiped out for the day!!

Sadly noted and signed all petitions with hope in my heart to stop the mass slaughter of Romanian dogs with this comment ~ PLEASE PLEASE stop the mass killing of these poor unfortunate dogs who deserve to be treated with kindness instead of brutally slaughtering them,its not their fault that they are homeless,unwanted and live a miserable life on the streets,SPAY/NEUTER them,this problem will never go away if you don't do the right thing.SPAY/NEUTER is the way forward.PLEASE have a heart and stop the torture of these poor lost souls.So very sad how MANS best friend is treated all over the world,tragic and heartbreaking.The eyes of the world are on you Romania for the way you so cruelly treat the homeless dogs of your cities.The many pictures of the dogs being captured will haunt me always and bring tears to my eyes.Voted and letters on their way.Thank you dear Desanka for all your hard work you do for these poor dogs and thank you dear Henriette for the fwd,i await and pray for good news that someone in power has a heart and STOPS the killings.Thank you.Liz Xx

Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you very much for your e-mail on the horrible treatment of stray dogs in Romania.
Like you, I am shocked about the actions taken by authorities and support the demands made by the Animal Welfare Intergroup of the European Parliament. The killing of thousands of stray dogs is not an acceptable solution to a problem that can only be solved through sterilisation and an extensive strategy.
The EU cannot turn a blind eye. We have to act swiftly and I will actively support a solution in the European Parliament.

Yours truly,

I always try to sign all petitions and spread the word by forwarding them. I wish with all the animal lovers we have in the world that everyone would just sign 10 petitions every day and spread the word. Think of how we could make these petitions swell, if we each did that.
Thank you for sharing this with us. Hopefully, there will be a big change.

Romania sure seems to hate dogs. They need to do more for them.
