Would you like to spend your vacation at a beach where dogs died in agony of poison because of you and were removed shortly before you arrived?
Every year stray animals are poisoned in communities, at hotel grounds and at beaches of the Dominican Republic (as well as on other Caribbean islands) 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 organisations. Sometimes 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. Yet tourism is one of the main reasons for the surpopulation of strays in southern holiday resorts: The consumer habits of tourists produce garbage; garbage that the small vacation spots often aren't equipped to deal with; garbage that is the main source of nutrition for stray animals.
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.
Tourists' protests prevented the planned mass killing of Antiguan strays; the Antigua & Barbuda Humane Society got permit to spay and neuter instead. And on many other Caribbean islands tourists are helping animals as well, as you can read on http://www.hsi.org/issues/street_dog/factsheets/tourism_benefit_caribbean_animals.html
With your signature on our petition, we can convince Dominican 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.

No more poisoned dogs at hotels and beaches of the Dominican Republic!

Who would like to spend a vacation at a beach where dogs died in agony of poison and were removed shortly before the tourists arrive? Every year stray animals are poisoned in communities, at hotel grounds and at beaches of the Dominican Republic (as well as on other Caribbean islands) because it is believed that they may disturb the tourists. Among the victims are often animals which have been already spayed and neutered by animal welfare organisations. Sometimes 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. By signing this petition they express that they will never spend their holidays somewhere where animals are killed instead of being spayed and neutered. Yet there is already a growing number of hotels concerned and respecting their guests' wishes for a humane treatment of animals as you can see in the online travel guide "Animal-friendly hotels in the Caribbean":http://kreolischerhund.de/Hotels.en.php We want to offer hotels in the Dominican Republic a program to deal with the stray animal problem in a humane, animal-kind manner in accordance with the wishes of the majority of tourists and the Dominican law 248-12 for Animal Protection.

Spay and neuter of stray animals

Further care for the animals in cooperation with local animal welfare organisations by maintaining feeding places and providing medical care.

Please contact your local animal welfare organisation in Punta Cana:

No más perros envenenados en hoteles y playas de la República Dominicana!
Quién querría disfrutar sus vacaciones en una playa donde los perros murieran en agonía al ser envenenados y removidos del área poco antes de que los turistas llegaran? Cada año animales de la calle son envenenados en comunidades, dentro de hoteles y en playas de la República Dominicana (y otras islas del Caribe) porque se cree que pueden molestar a los turistas. Entre las víctimas frecuentemente se encuentran animales que ya han sido castrados por organizaciones de protección animal. A veces se producen envenenamientos masivos para "limpiar" un área antes de la temporada turística. La mayoría de los turistas no tiene idea de que tantos animales sufren una muerte cruel por su causa y se horrorizan cuando se enteran de esto. Firmando esta petición se puede expresar que no se desea disfrutar sus vacaciones en un lugar donde los animales se matan en vez de castrarlos para controlar su reproducción. Ya hay un número creciente de hoteles preocupados por esta situación y que respetan los deseos de sus huéspedes de que los animales tengan un tratamiento más humano, como se puede ver en la guía de viajes en línea "Hoteles amigos de los animales en el Caribe":http://kreolischerhund.de/Hotels.en.php Queremos ofrecer a los hoteles en la República Dominicana un programa para manejar el problema de los animales de la calle en una forma humana y amigable para los animales, de acuerdo con los deseos de la mayoría de los turistas y la ley de República dominicana 248-12 de Protección Animal.
Castración de animales de la calle
Cuidado de los animales en cooperación con organizaciones locales de protección animal mediante sitios de alimentación y atención veterinaria
Por favor contacte a su organización local de protección animal:
