Would you like to spend your vacation at a beach where dogs or cats died in agony of poison because of you and were removed shortly before you arrived? Or be horrified by meeting starving, mutilated, cruellyabused and suffering animals every step of the way when taking a stroll through the community close to your resort, wanting to get to know more about your holiday paradise, visit the local market to taste delicious tropical fruits or buy a souvenir that will remind you of a wonderful vacation all year until it’s time to go on holiday again? Animals that are pets, family members and dearest friends there where the tourists come from?
Every year stray animals are poisoned in communities, at hotel grounds and at beaches of the Caribbean because one believes that they may disturb the tourists. Among the victims are often animals like Piggy ( http://kreolischerhund.de/Besuch8.en.php#Chapter8 ), which have been already spayed and neutered by animal welfare organizations. Mass poisonings take place to "clean" an area before the beginning of the Tourist season.
Most tourists have no idea that so many animals suffer such a cruel death because of them and are horrified when they learn about this.
Other animals die by the thousands of starvation, neglect, abuse in the Caribbean communities after a short life full of cruelty and misery. They are beaten to death, hung up, drowned and tortured in any unspeakable ways because communities and politicians don’t care and refuse to pass and enforce animal welfare laws! Tourists are shocked when getting to know their holiday spots a little closer. And many of them decide not to return. Official studies show that there is a measurable loss in profit for both Tourist industry and the Caribbean economy because tourists choose other holiday destinations dismayed by the cruelty against animals they have met in the Caribbean, taking home with them most unpleasant memories… But tourism as the essential factor of Caribbean economy also means hope and a chance for a better future for poor animals because tourists have the power and the possibility to take action! By signing our petition you make clear that you will never spend your holidays somewhere where animals are killed instead of being spayed and neutered and where animal welfare laws are not being enforced and animal abuse isn’t punished.Tourists' protests prevented the planned mass killing of Antiguan strays; the Antigua & Barbuda Humane Society got permit to spay and neuter instead.
With your signature on our petition, we can convince Caribbean officials and the tourist industry that poisoning animals is bad for business!
We want to offer hotels and communities the following:
Free spay and neuter of stray animals, further monitoring of the animals in cooperation with local animal welfare organisations, communities and hotels by maintaining feeding places and providing medical care, advice about responsible handling of garbage For further Information visit http://kreolischerhund.de/PetitionDomRep.en.php
