NO: TO THE MASS STRAY DOGS ABUSE IN APULIA FOR LUCRATIVE PURPOSES!

THIS IS AN ONGOING HORROR AND WE CAN FIGHT IT BY SHARING AND CREATING INFORMATION ABROAD! When a sentient being can suffer at the hands of humans, we have the obligation to protect them from our own brethren. Animals have a value beyond what they´re worth in money. An abused dog can´t fight his tormenter for pain and suffering, but we can. In a developed and modern society, we have the obligation to fight for the rights of those who don´t have a voice. WE ARE A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS. Any business that makes a profit out of dogs imprisonment, abuse and torture is against any basic ethical and moral principle, and against the EU and Italian Law of Animal Welfare. THE ITALIAN REGION OF APULIA IS NOW TRYING TO LEGALIZE MASS STRAY DOGS ABUSE FOR LUCRATIVE BUSINESSES! During the past twenty years, thousands of stray dogs have been tortured and abused in private administrated dogs “shelters”, in Italy called “canili-lager”. Italy finances the battle against the stray dogs' phenomenon with over 730 million Euro per year. The region Apulia spends over 73 thousand Euro DAILY, for a total of circa 27 million per year, to maintain the “life-imprisonment” of stray dogs in the region. The number of stray dogs in Apulia has risen from 20.000 to 160.000 in ten years. How could it happen? STRAY DOGS MEAN MONEY. A LOT OF MONEY.  THE DOGS ABUSE IN APULIA HAS DEVELOPED A SYSTEM For each dog, a private "shelter" (canile) gets between 1.60 to 20 Euro per day. Such a private "canile" collects the dogs of various towns, which often means a monthly sum of more than 150.000 Euro. Pregnant dogs, or dogs in their heat fertile period, are left on purpose on the streets to multiply, or thrown in cages with potent male dogs. Forced to breed until they die. In pain, with no help or medical care. The other stray dogs land in the "canile" where they usually remain until they die. Day after day, year after year. Adoptions are inexistent and are actually undesired. The would just diminish the gain of the “canile”. Sometimes they see no food or water for days.  Sometimes they are forced to eat their own feces, their own puppies or cellmates. Dead bodies. Disease. Rape. Poor souls curled up in their own pain until they die. Alone. Anonymous. Often they are old slaughterhouses or factories that get transformed into “Canili-Lager”. In these places usually live 200, 500, or even more than 1000 dogs pressed together in small cages or boxes. In the "canili-lager" the dogs have no medical care, no freshwater, not enough food or protection from the sun, the rain or the cold. Deadly fights happen daily. Almost all dogs are sick or get sick very quickly: swollen legs, scab, tumors, cancer or leishmaniosis – from the perspective of a battle against epidemics, the situation is also very dangerous. Euthanasia is not allowed, not even for terminally ill or very old dogs. The puppies that manage to survive, might spend even their all life in this hell. The dogs that survive become crazy, depressive, or aggressive. No mass sterilization program has ever been started in 20 years! (Please, read the article at the end of the petition for details. It is important to know all of it). Today, in October 2019 the Region Apulia wants to make a step forward in the promotion of this criminal organized business. They have proposed new amendments concerning the Regional Law. 15 (see note). Amendments that will reinforce the privatization of such dogs shelters by incentivizing the role of PROFIT oriented businesses and worsen the already pitiful living condition of stray dogs in the private "canili-lager" and on the streets. The new amendments in Apulia will dangerously: - incentivize the privatization process of dogs shelters; - support the exchange of dogs between neighboring regions - abolish the limit of 200 dogs per shelter, which will lead to the realization of „mega-canili" with the system of the contiguous modules. This means MASS DOGS FACTORIES WITH THOUSANDS OF STRAY DOGS IN CAGES, not sterilized, no castrated! A‌ perverse form of MASS BREEDING OF STRAY DOGS for the gain of a group of people. These amendments will also unashamedly penalize the work of Italian and international organizations for animal rights, which are active in Apulia and Italy for many years. WE SAY NO! WE CREATE AWARENESS ABROAD BY SHARING INFORMATION! WE FIGHT FOR THE VOICELESS TODAY AND TOGETHER! -- THESE DOGS SPEND THEIR DAYS IN A LIFE-LONG PRISON, WITHOUT A CHANCE OF HAVING A NORMAL LIFE, AND EVEN WITHOUT THE OPTION OF EUTHANASIA WHEN THEY ARE TERMINALLY ILL OR TOO OLD TO MOVE. THEY ARE OFTEN BORN IN A PRISON AND DIE IN A PRISON. But a dogs shelter is meant to be a transition place, with medical care, healthy living conditions, and an active program of adoptions. A PLACE OF HOPE! It is not a concentration camp and life-long prison for dogs. It is not a source of money. Not a place of disease, pain, and suffering. -- We appeal to the President of the Region Apulia Emiliano, to the Italian Minister of Health Roberto Speranza, and to the Director of the World Organization for Animal Health Monique Eloit. -- WE ASK THE PRESIDENT OF THE REGION APULIA EMILIANO to: - cancel the amendments - forbid private dogs shelters in the Region Apulia and support controlled public dogs shelters administrated by NO-PROFIT organizations - to follow the first objective of the Italian Government in the “Battle against the Stray Dogs' Phenomenon” (Lotta al Randagismo) which is the PREVENTION OF THE STRAY DOGS PHENOMENON and the IMPROVEMENT OF STRAY DOGS LIVING CONDITIONS IN THE STREET AND IN THE SHELTERS - TO SET UP A MASS STERILIZATION PROGRAM OF STRAY DOGS IN ALL APULIA, for stray dogs living on the streets as well as those already in the shelters - start an investigation concerning the misuse of public money for private gain in the context of private dogs shelters - start an investigation on past and present violations of the Italian and European Animal Welfare and Animal Rights laws, in private and public "canili" of the Region Apulia - start an investigation concerning a series of violations against the national and regional laws concerning dogs shelters, missing registrations, neglected castration, neglected adoptions, neglected medical care - start an investigation concerning the violation of supervisory duties in the private "canili", and especially in the private "canili-lager" of the region Apulia, especially concerning the dogs´health care and medical conditions - to create educational platforms for Apulia citizens and children concerning animal welfare, dogs welfare, and protection. - to create a collaboration platform with international organizations for Animal Rights - to implement severe penalties against animal abuse and abandonment - to set a new set of rules concerning dogs shelters in Apulia in respect of the European and Italian Laws for Animal Welfare, Animal Rights and ethical and moral principles --- Our appeal also goes to the ITALIAN MINISTRY OF HEALTH to: - forbid any form of privatization of animals shelters, including dogs shelters in Italy - to ensure that the first objective of the Italian Government in the “Battle against the Stray Dogs' Phenomenon” (Lotta al Randagismo) focuses on the PREVENTION OF THE STRAY DOGS PHENOMENON and the IMPROVEMENT OF STRAY DOGS LIVING CONDITIONS IN THE STREET AND IN THE SHELTERS - to ensure that the public money is invested correctly and for the well being of the animals - THE OBLIGATION FOR ALL ITALIAN REGIONS INCLUDING APULIA TO SET UP A MASS STERILIZATION PROGRAM FOR STRAY DOGS LIVING IN THE STREETS AND IN THE SHELTERS - a prevention program that includes medical care, food, freshwater, a temporary shelter for stray dogs in the streets, promoting adoptions, and educational projects to prevent the abandonment of dogs. - to set up a DOG TAX for Italian dogs´ owners - to implement severe penalties against animal abuse and abandonment - to start an investigation concerning a series of violations against the national and regional laws concerning dogs shelters, missing registrations, neglected castration, neglected adoptions, neglected medical care, in Italian private "canili" - start an investigation concerning the violation of supervisory duties in the private "canili", and especially in the private "canili-lager" in Italy, in particular concerning the health conditions of the dogs. --- WE ASK MONIQUE ELOIT, GENERAL DIRECTOR OF THE WORLD ORGANIZATION FOR ANIMAL HEALTH to: - investigate the living conditions of dogs in private dogs shelters in Italy, and the missing medical care for dogs in the shelters as well as in the streets - investigate a series of possible violations against the national, regional, and European laws concerning dogs shelters, missing registrations, neglected castration, neglected adoptions, neglected medical care, dogs abuse for lucrative business by the hand of private dogs shelters owner, private companies - to evaluate the living conditions of stray dogs in private and public dogs shelters and private "canili-lager" in Italy especially considering possible health risks for the population and for other animals and the spreading of contagious diseases like Leishmaniasis - investigate the condition of dogs corpses disposal by the private "canili-lager" especially for the "canili-lager" located on the countryside - We also appeal to her for the support of a mass sterilization and castration program of stray dogs in and out of the shelters in the South of Italy (Apulia, Sicily, Calabria, Campania, Basilicata, Lazio) - and to support the fight against the life-long imprisonment of stray dogs for lucrative purposes on an international level -- WE SAY NO! TO ANIMAL ABUSE --- Further information on the subject: - you can search the web with the keywords: canile lager Puglia, canile lager Sicilia, canile prigione, cani prigione canile, randagismo puglia -- Below you find the translation of a very informative article by Andreas Krebs from the Schweizer Hunde Magazin. Originally in German language. (original: http://hundemagazin.ch/hundehoelle-apulien-das-system-canile/ )   Apulia the hell of dogs: the system "canile". Often they are old slaughterhouses or factories that get transformed into “Canili-Lager”. In these places usually live 200, 500, or even more than 1000 dogs pressed together in small cages or boxes. The Italian State pays from 4 t0 20 Euro for each dog. Therefore each dog is welcome and for this reason, dogs don´t get castrated or sterilized. They have no medical care, no freshwater, enough food or protection from the sun, the rain or the cold. Deadly fights happen daily. Almost all the dogs are sick or get sick very quickly: swollen legs, scab, tumors, cancer or leishmaniosis – from the perspective of a battle against epidemics, the situation is also very dangerous. This form of mafia system of animal abuse started in 1991 with the modification of the Law for the Animal Protection. The consequences of the law. In 1990 there were in Apulia 20.000 Stray Dogs (Randagismo) and very few “shelters”. Today there are more than 80.000 dogs imprisoned in 100 official “shelters”, and more than 80.000 Stray Dogs (Randagismo) on the streets. Since the new Law, twenty years ago, the number of Stray Dogs (Randagismo) has risen in Apulia from 20.000 to 160.000! A small part of this money would have been enough to start a big program of castration and sterilization of Stray Dogs (Randagismo) and the problem could have been solved in about 5 years. It is a very complex problem, says Stefan Weber, journalist, and member of CICTO and director of the Association of Active Veterinarians (Verein Tierärzte im Einsatz). The system “canile” Is a cultural, political and economical problem. Weber operates with projects of Lobby work in Rome, organizes sterilization initiatives and actions, and educational projects in schools. He has chosen Apulia because the situation here is especially serious and because the law should at least allow the Stray Dogs (Randagismo) to be sterilized and then let them again free on the street. But this work is arduous. «The corruption is on many levels and covers many aspects of life», says Weber, and he confirms this way what Stefano said, that the owners of the “canili” are the ones putting some of the dogs back on the streets: “because this way the existence of the “canili” is justified. It has already happened that in one night they cleaned up entire towns, throwing the dogs together in small transporters. One transporter, for instance, has 15 dogs, of which 3 were pregnant, 5 had their heat period, and the rest were potent male dogs(therefore also instigating rape among them). This way all the sterilization and castration initiatives are made completely useless.   (Note: Amendments concerning the "Disegno di Legge n.15 del 21.02.2019 : Norme sul controllo del randagismo, anagrafe canina e protezione degli animali d´affezione. Abrogazione della legge regionale 3 aprile 1995 n.12. Interventi per la tutela degli animali d´affezione e prevenzione del randagismo.”)
