SOCIETIES FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS REQUEST CANCELLATION OF MEMORANDUM 

Association for the Protection of Animals “Pets Are Worth Saving”, EPAR Serbia, Alex and injured party citizens sent an open letter and the public request for the cancellation of the Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation between the City of Subotica and the Association of Citizens “Anima Subotica”. The request states that the Memorandum is considered incomplete and they demand its cancellation, because it allows the survival of irresponsible pet owners. 

“Anima Subotica” did not want to comment on the negative reactions of these associations, because they believe they work for the benefit of animals, they treat every animal taken off the streets, sterilize and manage to find a home for it and do not return it back to the street. They consider asylums or shelters are not a solution, but only sterilization, education, responsible ownership, punishing irresponsible owners, as well as mandatory micro-chipping. 

---------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------- 

If they consider asylums or shelters are not solutions then why did they sign the Memorandum whose Clause 5 states “building shelters and improving conditions in existing shelters”? The same Clause states “killing dogs in a humane way in accordance with the law”. We all know how public shelters kill their dogs in Serbia. We've seen lots of horror photos and we definitely wouldn’t sign that Memorandum. Would you?

Also there is nowhere to be found in Memorandum any word of punishing the irresponsible owners.

That is why we are calling this Memorandum incomplete. Some parts are missing and some Don’t Benefit Animals At All!! We Are Requesting Its Cancellation Now!!

Please continue to I and Share this petition. Thank you!!
