The text of the letter to be sent:

"Dear sirs,
I want to express my deepest indignation for the recent campaign, launched by the government of Belgrade, against stray dogs. I know that since about six months the government starts to capture and bring to the city pounds all strays, without tell nothing about their destiny.
I know that in Pozega there is a terrible city pound called “Nas Dom”, which lodges strays from eight municipalities, where dogs being killed every 7-10 days.
I ask to Serbian government to respect the European convention for the protection of pet animals, ratified on July 2011, stopping immediately and definitely the mass euthanasia and launching programs of catch-neuter-return in all Serbia. I also ask to improve conditions in shelter and to promote adoptions.
Show to the world that Serbia is respectful, civil and human to animals."

I modified the message before sending it. I also changed the subject message to something like "Urgent Action Required in Pozaga."

Remember to separate all of the email addresses with commas as semi-colons won't go through. Also, four of the addresses bounced back already.

All we can do is try....and pray.....that all of this helps.

I clicked the 'send message' button on site page however, experienced difficulty in sending! I, therefore, copied and pasted it to send myself! I also slightly edited the message for a personal touch! Yes it was more work but well worth it to save these poor, helpless dogs in Serbia! I only hope the authorities listen!

My letter and email recipients detailed below for anyone that may possibly need a little help! Thanks everyone involved in this campaign xx

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am contacting you to express my deepest indignation for the recent campaign, launched by the government of Belgrade, against stray dogs.

I know, for the past six months, that the government has started to capture and take all the strays to the city pounds, without nothing being known about their destiny!

I am aware, that in Pozega. there is a terrible city pound called “Nas Dom”, which lodges strays from eight municipalities and where dogs are being killed every 7-10 days!

I sincerely urge the Serbian government to respect the European convention for the Protection of Pet Animals, ratified in July 2011 and to stop immediately, the mass euthanasia and launching programs of catch-neuter-return in all of Serbia. I also plead that you improve the conditions in shelters and promote adoptions rather than this horrendous killing which is currently taking place!

Please show the world that Serbia is nation which is: Respectful, Civil and Humane to all animals!

Thank you for your kind attention and cooperation to this urgent and most serious of matters, it is much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Marina Murphy
UNITED KINGDOM

I also amended the letter in the hope it may get through -

"Dear Sirs

I want to express my deep indignation for the recent campaign, launched by the government of Belgrade, against stray dogs. I know that for about six months the government has started to capture and bring to the city pounds all strays, without telling anyone about their destiny. I know that in Pozega there is a terrible city pound called “Nas Dom”, which lodges strays from eight municipalities, where dogs being killed every 7-10 days. This is wrong.

I also request that they improve conditions in shelters and to promote adoptions. Show to the world that Serbia is respectful, civil and humane to animals.

Mind you, I wish I had read Marina Murphy's letter first!

I don't believe it - my comment's gone, my 'notes' aren't taking - unless there is a latency period of an hour or more(!) - and now the letter I worked on for for some time for the dogs has been returned in email!! Will try again and reword the title - perhaps (like the many we sent to save bears) they have an email filter rejecting all attempts to protect the dogs. Doesn't the charity accept the emails and can then publish them if he mayor alleges that he hasn't had any emails to protect them?
