We wish to emphasize the importance of enforcement of the new animal welfare law submitted 3 years ago, and we are calling to stop cruel practices against animals and stopping the poisoning and dog shooting and applying instead the neuter/vaccine/release system which has previously been applied successfully in India, 70000 dogs have been neutered, vaccined and released.

The many volunteer workers and supporters are concerned that the new legislation submitted since 2004 is not being treated with the seriousness it deserves. Many cases of animal cruelty continue to be reported with little evidence to date of prosecutions.

The animal protection organization SPARE are willing to assist the police in investigating cases of animal cruelty, and arranging appropriate training for law enforcement officers.

The vast majority of Egyptian Cultured people are horrified at this mass slaughter of dogs, they believe that a sterilisation programme is an effective method for controlling the number of street dogs.

Considering the WSPA offer since May 2002

(World Society for animal protection has made a proposal to the Egyptian Government to apply the spay/neuter program voluntarily (without any debts) but the proposal was refused!!

I wonder what these children are thinking. They are going to grow up with no respect for dogs at all.

sadly, dogs are not highly thought of in these countries so no one really cares if they suffer or not. it is just part of the culture, not right, but respect for animals just do not exist.
