A massive rounding up of domestic dogs occured in Iran during the first week of May 2013. These dogs were forcefully seized from their owners and transferred to Kahrizak prison. Reports appear to show that a third of the approximately 150 dogs seized have lost their lives attributed to poor conditions and starvation.
A large campaign against dogs is underway by the Iranian Regime to destroy all stray dogs with members of the general public being encouraged to undertake killing of dogs. This needs to stop!!! Some people are making a living out of this, torturing and killing dogs so inhumanely and being rewarded for it.
It is important to let the Iranian Regime know that such cruelty to any animal is not acceptable and should be stopped immediately!
