Even though laws exist protecting strays and forbidding their killing, most of the Mayors in Romania still destroy dogs unofficially without solving the problem. Instead, they are causing useless suffering to the animals. Demand the killing be stopped!

Update from Desanka! Please send email expressing outrage at the continuation of this barbarity!

by Save the Dogs and other Animals

THE CATCHING OF HUNDREDS OF STRAYS in the town of Mangalia, in Romania, continues, despite 11,000 signatures collected by our petition in a few days and the pressure out in many ways on the Municipality. Today STD will send a press release in Italy and Romania to denounce what is happening and ask for Italians not to go on holiday on the Romanian coast. We are also preparing with the local activists a legal action.

Below: a short video shot thursday which shows the dog catchers on duty.

Dear Sirs,

I am shocked by the method chosen by your administration to curb the problem of stray dogs in view of the tourist season.

The violent capture of dogs and their transfer in unknown kennels cannot be considered a proper solution to the problem and it makes citizens indignant, especially those who care about animals’ rights and welfare safeguarding.

Therefore I request the names of kennels in which the dogs have been locked up and the amount allocated for this massacre are made public.

This investment should instead be directed towards a project of mass sterilization, as proposed by the Save the Dogs, which has already achieved noticeable results in other Romanians municipalities.
Therefore I want to emphasize the total need to stop immediately all the captures and to restart the dialogue with the associations in order to align your policy with European decrees.

Your name and country
