We call for 'Billy's Law' to end the cruelty, torture and abuse of animals in Cyprus

Billy was a small Cyprus poodle puppy, he was a stray who was sickly and weak, he was reported as wandering around a hotel in Cyprus. Instead of taking this defenseless puppy to a vet or even to the nearby dog pound, staff there beat him and threw him into a commercial crushing machine!
Despite great efforts to save him, Billy died in the clinic on 4/7/2014
Animal abuse and neglect in Cyprus is rife, Billy's case was the last straw for many of us, we cannot let his suffering be in vain
This petition remained open until Justice was finally served for Billy in January 2018 when one of the accused was sentenced to four months in prison. It wasn't full Justice as not all of the accused were sentenced but it was the best we could hope for
Billy's petition is now being prepared to go to the EU Commission, we must highlight the blatant EU violations in Cyprus and call for change so that at least his suffering wasn't in vain. This petition is not just about Billy, to many of us he represents all the strays and animals who suffered and continue to suffer in Cyprus
