Stop the culling of innocent stray dogs

    1. Petition by

      Singapore, Singapore

Stray dogs, even sterilized ones, face the risk of getting caught using inhumane methods and then killed by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) of Singapore. When stray dogs are reported as having attacked a human, they will be caught and put down. However, unless a dog has rabies, why should it attack a human if it is not provoked, first? Even then, is it really the dog's fault for attacking the human?

Also, culling is not the solution to the growing dog population in Singapore. Instead, the most humane way possible should be to sterilise them, release them, and maybe re-home some of them.

    2. Medium-sized dogs now allowed in HDBs but culling still allowed?

      In November, a Singaporean minister said during an interview for the Channel 5 News that putting down some stray dogs humanely is inevitable due to the lack of space, homes, etc. However, we believe that putting down ANY animal just because there is no space is not even humane to begin with.

      I also ask that you refer to the following article: http://news.asiaone.com/News/AsiaOne%2BNews/Singapore/Story/A1Story20111221-317446.html

      Four out of 26 dogs captured will be put down as they are seen as being aggressive. This leads us back to why this petition was even created in the first place - does "aggression" justify this cruel act of culling?

      We ask that you continue to support this cause and help to spread the word.

      Thank you.
