Bosnia and Herzegovina: Start Implementing Animal Protection Law

    1. Petition by

      P.A.W.S.

According to information we have received from activists in Sarajevo, we learned that on October 5, 2013 the Bosnian Government will be making changes in the Animal Protection Law. Based on our experience, this type of modifications doesn’t usually do any good for the animals. Government has already tried to do something similar a few months ago by proposing euthanasia of stray animals after only 15 days of their stay in the city pounds. Fortunately, this decision was never accepted and we want it to stay that way - permanently.

Pressure from the people and the Bosnian Government for this problem to be solved on the most brutal way is rising each day and is probably stimulated by the Romanian Government’s decision to kill all their stray dogs. We must stress out the information that Bosnian Government has never implemented their Animal Protection Law from 2009. That is why we need to keep our pressure on them to start doing their job properly and stop the needless suffering of Bosnian street cats and dogs.

    1. Update on the stray dogs' issue in Sarajevo, Bosnia

      Posted on September 16, 2014

      The Government of Canton Sarajevo has issued a decision ruling that the dog catching service of P. E. “Rad” be formed on 11th September, 2014, with the aim of removing aggressive, ill and elderly strays from the streets of Sarajevo, and “euthanising” them.

      This situation is illegal, it is against the constitution, it is a criminal offence.

      What will the restoration of this dog catching service mean for stray dogs and for citizens?

      Stray Dogs of Sarajevo to be Killed in Election Ploy

      […] the politicians decide, just before elections, to highlight an issue with dog bites and make a grand show of offering solutions by setting up a dog catching service and pouring funds into this service. In fact they have stated it will cost annually 680,000KM (340,000 Euros or 450,000 USD) to implement this service, and they have already allocated 88,000KM (45,000 Euros or 58,000 USD) for the cost of nine employees designated to this service, which includes a ‘hotline’ for citizens to report dog bites.
