Catastrophic news regarding the street dogs in Bosnia and Herzegovina!

The ruling politicians from Bosnia are working hard to suspend the law from 2009 that is in the favor of street dogs and is prohibiting the collection and cruel killing of street dogs by municipal workers. Accordingly, the brutal killing of stray dogs will be allowed again!

For months media is spreading hatred against street dogs, and intentionally causes fear and hatred towards the dogs. The state has almost no interest in a humane reduction of stray animals, the prices at the veterinary clinics for neutering are very high considering the standards and the high rate unemployment in Bosnia. To some people, monthly salary in Bosnia is as nearly as high as the cost of a castration is.

We must act now, and protest, to help defenseless animals in Bosnia and Herzegovina! They have suffered enough and still continue to suffer!

We ask the authorities to finally set a central register for dogs, to end all puppy mills and backyard breeding, and to finally punish the abandonment of animals! We want the authorities to do their work and not go the easiest way to them, because it could lead to a thousandfold slaughter of dogs.

Our main goal is to prevent the suspension of the law! Please help us mobilize all the friends, acquaintances, animal rights protectors, media, politicians,...

      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.
