European Union: Say no to the new law not allowing Romanian dogs to other EU countries
The Romanian government passed the kill bill and the law came into force in 25th Sept 2013 allowing the government emploees to kill all strays in public shelters overstaying seven (7) days. That resulted in a huge wave on mass killings. And also the Romanians thought they are allowed to do the very same thing, only make it much, much worse.
The things done to the defenseless dogs were and are atrocious. FaceBook is full of these photoes, and even videos of youngsters killing and torturing strays to death.. If EU passes the no-bill to a law, the conseqences will be terrific for the dogs (now they live in purgatory).
The corruption is deeply seated in Romanian society and government and it seems to us that they can get away with it.. Dog catchers get paid per capita and even mayors of some larger towns and cities get paid for the captures of strays, even there are spayed and neutered dogs, even pedigree pets snatched from their yards, among those caught for the death camps.
There are many a Romanian dog in Europe as a loved pet, and most of them are 100% healthy. EU had given Romania millions of euros to fight rabies near it borders with countries having lots of rabies cases. Was that money used as supposed to? Maybe an audit of Romanian governmental accounting would be a good thing to see, if some of the money has been passed to some other place or person.
All dogs from Romania to EU area have been vaccinated agaist rabies and Echonococcus bakteria, among other things. They always travel with a person looking after the dog/dogs in his/her care. They all have had EU pet passports and all have been micro chipped.
Norway has already denied entrance from Romanian dogs, and only because of few really found and reported cases of rabies. SCAHAW has good guide lines for how to bring a dog to an EU country. We think that this is an over reaction.
And the possible law is not equal. It singles out Romania as the main source of rabies, and yet the contamination by tourists is the real reason behing rabies outbrakes, minor as they have been.
All of us who love animals and gods ask you not to pass the bill and prevent us from getting pets from Romania. The country has suffered a lot economically, and to be singled out as the main provider of the rabies virus is not going to help cooperation in EU.
Please, do not make the same mistake Norways has made, let the Romanian dogs have a chance for good life in other European Union couintries.

Say no to the new law not allowing Romanian dogs to other EU countries,
We the undersigned would like you do dismiss the planned law (due date 15th. Sept.2014) that would deny the entry of all Romanian dogs to other European countries. Norway has made its own hasty law. 99% of the dogs coming from Romania are from reputable private shelters, and the dogs have been vaccinated and ID chipped with pet passports in perfect order and without a trace of any illness or disease. Many have even adopted special needs dogs out of love for animals.
This new EU law would wreak havoc in Romania, since the cruel people attacking and abusing and torturing the strays get away with a crime. It is as if EU wants to create a nation divided, letting some people do the most horrific things to the defenseless dogs.
As EU citizens and from other countries we cannot see this through our fingers or let it be, this is too bad a law, and only enforces the Romanian government and other East European countries to similar legalized atrocities.
Please. say no when voting for the no entry law, the Romanian dogs are already under heavy attack by the small percentage of the public. They have no voices, and that is why we give them ours to speak up their minds.
Please, say no to the September law of no entry from Romania to other EU countries.
