MACEDONIA: Introduction and Links

Introduction

Things are always getting worse in Vardarishte shelter.  Over 30 new employees are engaged picking up the dogs in three shifts, the shelter is cramped and the dogs disappear… It is strictly forbidden to take photos.

When the volunteers enter the shelter, at least 3 persons follow you everywhere controlling any movement. Dogs are ill, there is no disinfection at all and at least the 70% of the puppies die in painful agony…

Everything is imposed by that wicked Mayor, but what can we do…?

Responsible for the Suffering at the Vardariste Holding Facility – the Mayor of Skopje.

At present only 2 volunteers are allowed to enter the shelter:  A contract imposes that they must be the same persons everyday for 5 hours per day. Of course this is crazy and they studied it with the purpose to make things impossible for volunteers, because volunteers have to go to work, like everybody, and volunteers could only manage by working in shifts; and the authorities have made sure this is not allowed. 

Volunteers are having to accept whatever the authorities offer for the sake of the poor dogs, because it is of vital importance to supervise the situation as much as possible.

The authorities are continually producing new requirements and demands which basically consist of new tricks and attempts to keep volunteers and welfare campaigners OUT of the facility.

International pressure is very much needed to be put onto the local government and also on the EU.

A sample letter has been prepared to the members of EU Eurogroup for Animals, asking that they act immediately in any way to stop this horror.

TWO PETITIONS For This Campaign – Please Sign:

1.            http://www.thepetitionsite.com/petition/316828281

STOP the massacre in Skopje (Macedonia)

We know these facts:    There is one only shelter in Skopje, and dogs are killed in huge number and impressive frequency. The Mayor, responsible of the shelter, declared openly that dogs must be KILLED, everyone of them. Volounteers of “Care for Animals” protested, of course, but it’s been vain. The shelter was meant to sterilize dogs and then let them go, but OFFICIALLY 56% of dogs are killed, there are about 10,000 dogs in the streets that have to be “cleaned” .

Honored Mayor of Skopje ,

Send to your public these  Third Millennium messages, instead of the killing:

STOP OVERPOPULATION OF DOGS AND CATS.
DON’T BREED OR BUY.
SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS.
ADOPT A SHELTER PET OR A STRAY AND SAVE A LIFE.

DON`T THROW  YOUR PETS OUT  ON THE STREET, AND  DON`T  LEAVE YOUR PETS AT THE CITY POUNDS – YOU ARE THEIR WHOLE WORLD .
