Petition Closed

We the undersigned are calling all government representatives to influence the situation in Kharkov and the whole country of the Ukraine. Stop the mass killing of dogs and cats in general and in preparation for the UEFA European Football Championship 2012!!!

Full official statistics are hard to come by, but figures and estimates provided to The Associated Press by authorities in the Euro 2012 host cities of Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Lviv show more than 20,000 dogs have been brutally killed (shot, poisoned or burned while still alive!!) over the past year. Animal protection groups believe the number is far higher!!
"It's a slaughterhouse," said Asya Serpinska, head of the Ukrainian Association of Animal Protection Organizations.

The Ukraine does not have any programs on stray animals number decreasing, no educating people about neutering their pets, no municipal shelter for stray animals!! All this leads to thousands of animals appearing at the streets and the absence of home pets breeding control entails increase of strays number!!

Activists in Donetsk and Kharkiv say stray dogs are also routinely killed by blowgun syringes loaded with dithylinum, a substance banned in Ukraine and the West for animal euthanasia. It paralyzes the respiratory system, so the dog dies slowly of asphyxiation, suffering for up to an hour.

"It's capture and kill," said John Ruane of Naturewatch, a British-based animal welfare group that monitors the situation in Ukraine. "It's just barbaric. !!"

These actions contradict European Animal rights Convention and any adequate humans moral principles. Besides it contradicts democratic societys principles and leaves a bloody stain on Ukraines reputation.

Please sign this Petition and share it with the world!! We need the support of all animal lovers worldwide! Let's fight against this barbarity on innocent animals!

YOU can do more: PLEASE sign as well to fight another crime against dogs! We need worldwide support:

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine.

----------------
Stop the mass killing of strays in the Ukraine!! We the undersigned are calling all government representatives to influence the situation in Kharkov and the whole country of the Ukraine. Stop the mass killing of dogs and cats in general and in preparation for the UEFA European Football Championship 2012!!!

Full official statistics are hard to come by, but figures and estimates provided to The Associated Press by authorities in the Euro 2012 host cities of Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Lviv show more than 9,000 dogs have been brutally killed (shot or poisoned) over the past year. Animal protection groups believe the number is far higher!!

"It's a slaughterhouse," said Asya Serpinska, head of the Ukrainian Association of Animal Protection Organizations.

"It's capture and kill," said John Ruane of Naturewatch, a British-based animal welfare group that monitors the situation in Ukraine. "It's just barbaric. !!"

The Ukraine does not have any programs on stray animals number decreasing, no educating people about neutering their pets, no municipal shelter for stray animals. All this leads to thousands of animals appearing at the streets and the absence of home pets breeding control entails increase of strays number.

Only a complex of activities will lead to stray animals number decreasing:
- Neutering of stray animals
- Vaccinating homeless animals
- Educating pet owners about necessity of neutering their pets
- Creating shelters for animals
- Discontinuance of poisoning stray animals

According to present legislation poisoning is a direct violation of Ukrainian law About protecting animals from cruel treatment. As well the none-acceptable fact, that mobile crematory are existing and in use.
These actions contradict European Animal rights Convention and any adequate humans moral principles. Besides it contradicts democratic societys principles and leaves a bloody stain on Ukraines reputation!

You may say that you have no money for humane program realization. This is not about money at all. There are plenty of Animal Protection Organizations:
- World Vets
- Humane Society International (HSI) etc etc

The whole world is watching your actions! Famous football players are informed. Videos of killed dogs are all over the internet!

The brutal killing of stray dogs and cats makes your country the worst place an UEFA European Football Championship has ever taken place!!

Again: STOP the animal cruelty in the Ukraine!!

THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING!!
