Please also join the Facebook Event “JAN 2014 PROTEST TO END THE BRUTAL KILLING OF DOGS IN ROMANIA & BOSNIA” for latest information about this protest in London. However, due to pro-kill agitators the event is ‘invite only’ so send a message to Elaine Renton ( to ask to join.

Regarding the BiH laws: as you know, the House of Representatives has voted in the new amendments to the Animal Welfare Act, but these amendments have to be passed by the House of Peoples. We do not yet know when this will be. Please keep writing to your MEPs, Embassies, media etc. All information is in the related posts listed below. If there is anything further we can do I will keep you updated.  The situation in BiH has been bad for so long, including numerous and continued transgressions of the Animal Welfare Act. We just have to keep at it, keep uncovering illegalities and keep campaigning.

As stated in other posts, the activists need our support with donations to help them campaign. Even if the law goes through, there is much they can do: all shelters need to be closely monitored to try to ensure that any ‘euthanisation’ as required by these proposed amendments is humane and that all other aspects of the Animal Welfare Law are implemented. Any amount will help, no matter how small.

There is a YouCaring fundraiser especially for this: Activists in BiH are doing their best to campaign against these amendments and to educate everyone in their country to the truth of what is happening.

Please sign and share the petitions!
