‘We don’t have money to invest in solving the problem.’
–Eugen Georgescu

Your assistance is needed to submit email letters to the Prefect of Dolj, Romania.

The prefect is offering to propose or amend some articles of the Animal Protection Act. Unfortunately the only options being offered to “solve” the problem of stray dogs are adoption and euthanasia. In Romania, “euthanasia” is not reserved solely for the humane vet-administered means of ending a dog’s life; leaving poisoned food in the streets, clubbing dogs in a burlap bag, and shooting them are all considered “euthanasia”.

‘There are only two alternatives: Either [people] adopt them, or, if [the strays] become a social danger, should be eliminated. What is the problem?’

–Eugen Georgescu

Irresponsible actions must be stopped. It is not true that there is no funding. Authorities can reallocate money spent on euthanasia campaigns to more humane and responsible campaigns, like spay/neuter. We have included two sample letters that you can use to email the Prefect of Dolj County. Please copy one of these letters (or write your own original statement) and paste it into an email addressed to either


Thank you very much for taking action now.

Sent both e-mails! What a world without animals, who would be abused then? Humans, I am sure of it. Some humans just need to abuse, WHY? All animals have a right to life. This is how God indented it to be, he is watching all our actions towards his creation, Justice will be served!
