ACTION

FOUR PAWS disapproves of European Commissionís plans to consider stray domestic animals as wild animals.

If this proposal was approved it would mean that stray and free-roaming animals would be granted a lower level of protection in the EU. In some situations, this could offer legal grounds for allowing hunters to shoot at them, as it has already been proposed in the past in various countries.

FOUR PAWS has thus decided to give voice to EU citizens (and their animals) by organising an international protest that starts with a postcard campaign addressed to the EU Institutions and that EU citizens can share.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Intentions for identification and registration of all dogs

Positive intenstion of the proposal: A call for a Europe-wide identification and registration of dogs. This would be a fundamental tool to prevent not only health risks for humans and animals, but also abandonment and illegal trade in puppies; therefore to protect dogs, and finally reduce canine overpopulation.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
