Shut Down All Horrific Pounds in Romania
Despite the existent law that enforce minimal conditions for a shelter to function legally in Romania, the reality is, most of the time, horrific:
Either shelters funded from public money don’t make necessary investments, either shelters are too poor to afford these investments, either – in some cases, unfortunately, animal lovers or even charities prefer to keep dogs in horrific conditions to get foreign people’s pity and donations and in some cases, charity/ies that “put to sleep” hundreds of dogs annually and refuse to explain public the reason for taking these dogs lives.
The consequence of people actions is always the same: Thousands of dogs living in misery, day after day, eating each other to survive, dying of infectious diseases. Some shelters are “putting to sleep” the dogs who are not adopted in 14 days. The methods in which euthanasia takes place are also often questionable.
Illegal shelters exist across Romania and the sole authority enforced to control these places, the National Veterinary Authority ANSVSA let them continue to function.
Together we can demand ANSVSA to:
- control all the shelters (funded publicly and privately)
- make sure each shelter meets all the conditions for a minimal EU standard, as required by law
- shut down immediately all the shelters who previously have been fined and who presently doesn’t have a legal shelter, as requested by the law
- demand all the shelters to have contract with a veterinary who can publicly proof the reasons why the dogs have been euthanized
