Why this petition matters

Started by M H

I am petitioning for the closure and elimination of animal ‘kill shelters’. Kill shelters are employed in Europe and other continents. There is a high number of kill shelters particularly in Romania, Belarus, Macedonia, Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina amongst other countries. 

As a large number of dogs and cats aren’t neutered, reproduction rates are extremely high. The government and some citizens view these animals as pests and consequently dogs are caught by the ‘dog catches’ and are brutally killed within a few days. 

The conditions in these kill shelters are inhumane. Dogs are left with no food and sleep on concrete flooring. There is photographic evidence showing how the people that run these kill shelters abuse these animals daily leaving the animals paralysed from fear. 

When it comes to the ‘euthanising’ of these animals, the process is barbaric as the animals are brutally killed by human hands or assaulted with heavy objects until their subsequent death. 

We are not living in the dark ages anymore. These animals deserve to be treated humanely. I am therefore petitioning for the closure of all kill shelters. I would like the governments of these countries to behave morally and allocate funding for neutering programmes and adoption programmes. There are many willing to adopt these animals.   

We the public from all over the world will not contribute to your tourism industry and will no longer visit these countries unless kill shelters are eliminated and your animals are treated humanely.
