PLEASE GO TO THE FOLLOWING POST: A CRY FOR HELP: WHY IT’S CRITICAL THE BiH ANIMAL WELFARE LAW IS NOT CHANGED

THIS POST HAS THE FULL DOCUMENTARY 'KINOFIL' WHICH WILL EXPLAIN WHAT THE ACTIVISTS IN BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA HAVE TO DEAL WITH AND WHY THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT,  AND ALSO WHY IT'S CRITICAL WE CONTINUE TO LOBBY FOR THE ANIMAL WELFARE LAW TO BE IMPLEMENTED AND NOT GIVEN 'AMENDMENTS'. Thank you!

BOSNIA IS ABOUT TO IMPLEMENT A KILL LAW THAT REPLICATES WHAT IS HAPPENING IN ROMANIA. TO STOP THIS LAW COMING INTO EFFECT THE NEXT TWO WEEKS ARE CRITICAL
and I am asking you to take a moment to write a letter to your MEP or Embassy in Bosnia-Herzegovina and other authorities. All details in these posts: 

Anti Kill Law Fight Continues


http://inmemoryofvucko.org/2013/10/04/bosnia-about-to-implement-kill-law/
Please sign the new petition:  STOP BOSNIA FROM IMPLEMENTING KILL LAW!

______________________________________________________________

This is a critical petiton to sign given what is happening in Romania right now. Bosnia may well decide to do the same thing.


Animal abuse is rife in Bosnia Herzegovina and the problem of companion animal, particularly dog overpopulation has become a problem of epidemic proportions; there are no humane animal control programs in place and the corruption occurring at management level in many public dog 'shelters' means that shelters are part of the problem, with dogs left to starve or being "euthanised" by injections of bleach or clubbing. The general populace of this country views stray dogs and cats as nothing more than a vermin to be exterminated – or worse.

It is critical that the government of Bosnia Herzegovina immediately implement a mandatory spay neuter program for strays (catch-neuter-return) and also for owned pets; mandatory microchipping; prosecution of animal abusers and corruption in shelter management and education of the populace in the importance of humane treatment of all animals. The link between animal abuse and crimes against people has been documented for decades and needs to be understood by the government and people of Bosnia Herzegovina. Please read the petition letter for the full story!
