The city government of Sarajevo: Please, stop the killings of strays, adopt spay and neuter in stead - Sarajevo

Sarajevo has an abundance of strays in its streets. This is he result of economic difficulties, less jobs etc. It makes it easy for people to dump their dogs in the streets and let them fend for themselves. And they get killed without their own fault. It would be ideal to find an alternative solution to the very negative situation.

Letter to
The city government of Sarajevo: the Mayor, et al.
It is not good advertisement to your city to kill so many strays, even entire families, mother dogs and pups, and leave them in plain sight, or collect them into dire shelters to die a slow and painful death.

It would be nice, if Sarajevo could spay and neuter all the strays, there is one such program going on right now. When spayed and neutered, there would be no more stray pups and the population of strays starts to decline in a natural manner.

The animal control officers may want to continue the present practice of killing strays, but it creates bad blood in most of the people of Sarajevo. There are those who are sick in mind and do terrible things to strays. There are those who want their meat. But where are those who want to give them homes? It could be arranged simply by changing the present municipal high kill shelters to rehabilitation/spay/neuter/shelters and that the employees in these shelters would take the dogs' wellbeing at heart.

This is our wish, and we hope you could grant us our wish. Thank you for your time.
