More than 30,000 dogs have died! Please help us put a stop to a further massacre!!

The images of the tortured dogs of Brasov have triggered worldwide protests by animal rights activists. More than 30,000 dogs have been captured over the past few years, starved, beaten to death or killed with T61.

Last year the fate of the Brasov stray dogs took a turn for the better with the city opting for a humane approach to solve the stray dog problem. The responsibility of the stray dog population was handed over to the local animal shelter ran by AMP Millions of Friends with the help of their German partners BMT. The programme involved neutering, health care and the rehoming of these strays both in Romania and across Europe.

Flavius Barbulescu runs an independent barbaric dog catching and killing business and has now sold his concept of a killing station to eleven municipalities in the Brasov County. The plan is to build a new shelter in the form of a secluded high security prison shielded from prying eyes and funded with tax payers money. The prison will be surrounded and protected by barbed wire, with surveillance, pompous management and internal access for the dog catcher transports where very few dogs will leave alive.

We appeal to you to say no to the killing station and stop these plans by signing this Petition. This Petition will be aimed at urging the municipalities to continue to hand over responsibility for their stray dogs to the animal welfare groups in those areas including the ‘Association for the Protection of Animals, Millions of Friends’ supported by Romanian Underdogs and our colleagues BMT Bund Gegen Missbrach der Tiere e.V, Germany.

Share this message and stop the merciless killing of thousands of dogs.
