Make a difference to a dogs life...

The situation for dogs in Romania got worse,in the autumn of 2013, after stray dogs were accused of killing a boy in Bucharest. The Romanian president and the press stirred up the hatred towards the animals, and succeeded in pushing through a law allowing the killing of all dogs after 14 days of their capture, unless the local mayor has the funds to allow the dogs a longer stay at the communal shelter.
The dogs are killed with inhumane and cruel methods. The new law has also encouraged the mass catchings and killings of dogs at shelters, because the shelters get money for all killed dogs. The president was supported in his campaign by uneducated people, who blindly believe his promises of cleaning the streets through the killings. A well known fact is that the stray dog problem can not be solved by killing the dogs, but only with a sterilizations programme and by educating people. The killing continue to be allowed, despite all facts. The only hope is that small shelters like Sava’s Safe Haven can show Romanians that there is a better way.
