Unimaginable dog neglect in shelter Kanis in Sremska Mitrovica

In the Serbian town of Sremska Mitrovica, disgusting dog abuse has been taking place for months, caused by the ruthless Mayor Vladimir Sanader. For many months, Vladimir Sanader has no longer funded any food for the 400 dogs in the Kanis shelter. Sporadic watery prison waste and leftover bread from a bakery encourage the mutual mutilation of the constantly starving dogs. If the European sponsors had not contributed more than €15000 there would be no dogs left in the Kanis shelter. Since April, Mayor has not paid salaries to Kanis employees, causing them to leave and the dogs are then largely left on their own. Dog catchers of the „dog murderer“ Vladimir Sanader brutally and without any training primitively capture street dogs and deport them (even if they have owners) to the prison grounds. No one is allowed to see the dogs, not even the director of the shelter nor the dog owners. Are these dogs still alive? So far, neither Sanader nor the prison director haven't responded to any pleas and requests in months. All the facts as well as testimonies of citizens from Sremska Mitrovica suggest that the 40 kennels on the prison grounds, which have so far been financed through EU funds, will be used as a „still secret“ killing camp. Please everyone, help us save the lives of our fellow beings. Sign and share this petition widely. With every signature an email is sent to the targets. So far we are targeting: Veterinary directorate of RS: Ministry of Agriculture: Prime Minister of RS: Mayor Sanader:   and Communal police: TV stations and newspapers:,, Feel free to send them your personal messages, but please be polite and respectful. Thank you.

Petition to Prince William County Board of Supervisors

Support the new PW County Shelter!

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, HEREBY PETITION the Prince William County Board of Supervisors the following: - That the Prince William County Board of Supervisors authorizes the design with option C as a foundation for the new Animal Shelter as recommended by the Department of Police and Public Works, and budgets the appropriate $14.124.525 for the design and construction of the Animal Shelter no later than October 31, 2017.   - That Option C be carefully adjusted in a way to ensure 100% compliance with VSA Standards in regards to construction and design as described below, specifically to ensure: Daily sunlight and fresh air for the animals, DAILY activity (design must include individual dog runs that can be open individually, not in groups and opened by staff exclusively as the design shows currently) and a cat room that allows cats to have safe social interaction also daily. - That each Supervisor volunteers for 4 hours at the Prince William Animal Shelter in a day of their choice, tendering to the animals as current volunteers do.This volunteering is to be concluded by October 15, 2017 prior to their final determination on this matter.  - That the anticipated "Design" period concludes by December 2017 and not May 2018. That the facility occupancy is advanced to June 2020 LATEST instead of December 2020. --------------- VSA STANDARD:  A) Fresh air: Between 10 and 20 room air exchanges per hour with fresh air is the standard recommendation for adequate ventilation of animal facilities (European Council 1986; Johnson 2004; ILAR 1996) B) Natural Light: Facilities should be designed to offer as much natural light as possible. When artificial light is used, it should closely approximate natural light in both duration and intensity (CFA 2009; Griffin 2006; New Zealand 1993; Patronek 2001). Enclosures should be positioned so individual animals can avoid being exposed to excessive amounts of light or darkness. Light and darkness should be provided so that they support the natural (circadian) rhythms of wakefulness and sleep. C) DAILY exercise and SOCIAL interaction: Animals should receive some type of positive social interaction outside of the activities of feeding and cleaning on a daily basis (e.g., walking, playing, grooming, petting, etc.). This is especially important for animals housed long-term. Cats must be allowed an opportunity to exercise and explore in a secure, enriched setting. Similarly, dogs must be provided with daily opportunities for activity outside of their runs for aerobic exercise (Griffin 2009a; Loveridge 1998).
