How this will help

Occupy for Animals 13 hours ago TAKE URGENT ACTION for Romania's homeless animals - send a letter & sign petition! The strays are in danger again! ABOUT THE ISSUE: Romania, as a country member of the EU, must implement those measures to control the over population of stray animals which have been proven efficient in all the civilized world: capture/sterilize/return .... But it appears that very many mayors in Romania have decided to kill as many stray dogs as possible. In mid-March 2013, the Romanian Senate has passed, with an overwhelming majority, the Bill 771/912/2007, regarding the management of stray animals, and based on the Judiciary Committee of the Romanian Parliament, only the animals suffering from incurable ailments can be euthanized. According to the information that we have received from Romanian activists, this proposal did not sound well with many mayors in Romania, as well as many veterinarians (!) and the Association of Romanian Municipalities has contacted the Committee for Public Administration at the Romanian Parliament during their session from 3rd of April 2013, and proposed the most horrible amendments possible, of which the euthanasia after only 10 days of all animals captured and living in state run shelters (public shelters) being the most horrible and barbaric of all. It is our understanding that the Committee for Public Administration at the Romanian Parliament will meet again in two weeks to make a final decision and to vote on all new amendments and then to send the Bill to the Romanian Parliament for a final vote in a plenary session. The new meeting is expected to take place around the 16th or 17th of April, 2013 - but the date has not yet been confirmed!!! We are afraid that local authorities - the town halls - have (again) decided to kill as many animals as they possibly can, and we all know how "euthanasia" is done in Romania, and we all know also that most public shelters are in fact DEATH CAMPS for the animals - dogs that have the misfortune to get caught and brought to such a so-called municipal, rarely walk out alive again! HOW TO HELP: ►► Please sign the petition started by Mira Iordanescu without fail - the signatures list will be forwarded to FPAM who will be at the Parliament, so they will print and present it to the Committee before the meeting. Please sign at: ►►  

 Respectfully yours, [your name]
