protest against the massacre of dogs in Romania, war dogs in the middle of Europe.

Dear Mr. Schulz,

We turn in the names of many animal rights activists and deeply horrified citizens to you.
We hereby urge you to take action against the brutal mass killing of thousands of innocent stray animals in Romania immediately. We do not tolerate that the EU and as your President, continue to stand idly by in an unprecedented bloodbath in Europe! There is inconsistent, that you one hand on behalf of the EU, the “Nobel Peace Prize 2012 “received and then on the other hand a war against dogs and cats in Europe are let. animals a solid and worthy of protection component our society and should not be excluded from life, nor from the law or ethical-moral values ​​in Europe.

The situation in Romania has dramatically intensified a week ago as a young boy allegedly said to have been killed by stray dogs. The media played the event incredibly high, and sparked a targeted mass hysteria of the population, which began immediately all stray dogs in a brutal way to kill, to shoot or to light alive. A few days later, the government used this staged on 10.09.2013 mood to a euthanasia law that the killing of all stray animals in Romania provides to decide. Since an incredible slaughter of the animals takes place in Bucharest alone threatens 65 000 dogs, the cruel death. Animal welfare organizations have had to close their offices, animal rights activists fear for their lives. Due to many inconsistencies in the case, has now confirmed that the little boy was NOT killed by street dogs, but probably should have been the victim of a pedophile crime. , it gives the impression that this is a long-cherished plan staged perfidious from the Romanian government implemented was. The Romanian government of President Traian Basescu tried for years the “euthanasia law PL912″ against the resistance of the animal rights activists assert. Between 2004 and 2009, an incredible 10 million street dogs were killed in Romania! In a figurative sense, this is a “genocide” in dogs as it has never existed before. There were almost as many dogs killed as the entire population of Romania! The brutality with which animals are killed is unprecedented. The dogs were hanged, living doused with acid, they were living with the Flex sawed off the paws, etc.

 

By now enforced euthanasia law of this cowardly murders will continue.
Romania shows that, once again, that it is not a civilized country and not having moral maturity to be a member of the EU. The problem of street dogs resulted solely from the irresponsibility of the people who threw these animals on the road they are not neutered and did not care about them. Instead of taking responsibility for the animals and humane and civilized way to decimate the population of the animals by castration and consistent to adopt, there is the Romanian government only cold-blooded murder as a supposed solution. Numerous studies show that killing does not lead to the decimation of the population. There are many NGOs and Romanian animal rights activists who have made ​​and shown outstanding work in recent years, how to by neuter & release measures, and care can effectively and humanely manage the problem of street dogs. fact that Romania against the Constitutional Court represents, and to date, the implementation of appropriate and ethical measures of population control (WHO) has refused, a perfidious background. In Romania, a lucrative business model has evolved to earn the dog hunter, municipalities and mayors million euros with the murder of stray animals.

Up to € 250 per dog paid by municipalities to animal shelters for accommodation. Funds are part of EU funds and in any case tax dollars and mean certain death for the dogs . Man looking at tendering the cheapest shelter, where the animals are after arrival often equal murdered or die of starvation – causes zero cost – brings 100% profit.
more aggressive and dangerous dogs in the media can be shown, the more one has the legitimacy to . assassinate a lucrative business, also funded by EU.

We therefore urge you to review the payment and appropriate use of EU funds in Romania and to end this possible misuse of EU funds.  it can not be that every tax-paying EU citizens is made ​​involuntarily to the dog killer, because with these funds will subsidize the killing of dogs!

It’s bad that it could come in Romania so far, especially against the background that we animal rights activists, both you, Mr Schulz, including all MEP `s in the last few years constantly on the murder of millions of stray animals and the use of EU agents have noted, interspersed with information, pictures and facts into knowledge. Countless petitions Written Declarations and protests were addressed to the European Parliament, many delegations from animal rights activists traveled to Brussels for talks. All that remained without significant changes and achievements.
We do not take longer accept that you and the EU Parliament will continue to stand idly such a inhumane and criminal goings-on in Romania and can thus be exploited for the local system.

For discussions and assistance in the management of street dogs we like are available.

Sincerely yours

Princess Maja von Hohenzollern (animal rights activist)

Update on Petition that was started early 2012…and she was just sentenced this May of 2013

pwXqWPRGpNYgsag-556x313-noPad

Sarah Rust from Indiana. Found guilty of animal abuse.

Sarah Rust: Jail time from May 08,2013 till June 14,2013.

Then, 275 days on probation under Hamilton County Community Corrections that was then filed under the Residential Project Contract. She is not to consume any alcohol or be in a place where alcohol is the primary product served. She has to participate in anger counseling, and a CARE evaluation and treatment.

The petition is not a victory although it was delivered to the targets and although she was found guilty.  

She did not get the maximum penalty for Class D Felony she committed and because she still gets to be around animals. For a class D Felony the maximum is 3 years in the state of Indiana.

The petition is now closed. As it is done for each petition, we wanted to give the end result of the justice system. This time, it has failed for animals. We will not give up as long as we have the support and dedication of caring animal advocates.

 Thank you very much to all that signed and shared the petition.

We received to our Mailbox a message from a young activist wanting to spread the word on what happened to her cat and what led for her furbaby to crossover rainbow bridge. Although none of the team members of hand4paws are veterinarians, we feel it is our obligation to share information that others provide. We recommend you talk to your cat’s vet and see all details that make a healthy and nutritious diet for your cat. Do your research and browse through the net to find more information. Here is a link where you can start reading about cats and eating dry food : Click here

Thank you – Hand4paws

***ALL CAT/DOG OWNERS PLEASE READ***
These animals, cats more than dogs, need raw mat. Dry food is not acidic, apparently. Diet is the brick and mortar of health. Cats have a better chance at optimal health if they are fed a canned food diet instead of dry kibble. Putting a little thought into what you feed your cat(s) can pay big dividends over their lifetime and very possibly help them avoid serious, painful, and costly illnesses. An increasing number of nutrition-savvy veterinarians, including board-certified veterinary internists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry kibble.

The three key negative issues associated with dry food are:

1) water content is too low

2) carbohydrate load is too high

3) type of protein – too high in plant-based versus animal-based proteins

My cat had crystals build up in his bladder, and the toxins from his kidneys could not be released in this manner. The toxins were put into his blood. It is VERY important to keep your cat’s diet balanced, ESPECIALLY if you have a male

Today, a fellow friend of animals sent the following article written for The Huntington Post :

Three Hawthorne Police Officers Go Off Street Duty After Shooting Dog

It explains: Three police officers have been pulled from street duty for their safety in Southern California after a widely circulated video showed an officer fatally shooting a Rottweiler and drew numerous death threats. Hawthorne police spokesman Lt. Scott Swain told the Daily Breeze, the decision is for the officers’ safety after the uniformed officer shot the dog four times on Sunday. http://bit.ly/14OwxK8

Our Thoughts:

Seriously? The police are afraid of Animal Advocates? Animal advocates care saving lives not killing! They have to end this stupid comments that Animal Advocates are dangerous! Not even in situations of the Animal Liberation Front has a human ever died! They liberate animals and destroy property but never taken a single human life! Why send out a press release in which lies are being told? 

Karma will take care of those that are unfair! And I know these 3 will get back everything that they did…and it will make them feel the pain that Max and his human companion felt. Does the police really think that they will change the focus of the story? The safety of the police? I would say that the citizens are now safe that those three cops are off the streets? Who are they kidding?

The video shows the truth from any angle. Abuse of power and lack of common sense! The man that shot the dog lacks common sense. They should know that when a dog is going to attack the dog will not approach and look and wait for an answer from his human guardian like Max did. No matter from what angle the video is seen, the dog approaches and looks back and forth to the people attacking his friend. He knows nothing about uniforms…he just knows people attacking his friend. There was no need to draw the gun, the dog did not reach to attack anyone. His owner begged, the dog was looking for comfort. The man was not going to run…cause he had nothing to hide. If he would have wanted to escape he would have from the start. He surrender and offer no resistance to arrest, he just asked…”why.”

If police would have been smart…they would have allowed the man take the dog back to the car and calm him down. This could have been done without taking off the cuffs. Then police calls for a family member to take the dog or they call animal services to pick him up until the man arrested can pick the pup up. Unfortunately, dogs are seen as property in certain states…but if the dog lived in the house being investigated…then he was part of the evidence and he had no right to temper the “evidence.” Why didn’t any if the cops there think of anything of anything?! Why…because they have no training and they don’t respect sentient beings! If the cops action is said to be the right action at that moment…then how come other officers did not draw their guns? Why…because they knew there was no need to shoot the pup. Only one coward…one coward…thought it was the right thing to shoot an animal. BAD DECISION MAKING AND JUST A PREPOTENT RESPONSE ! #Justice4Max

Justice for Phoenix the dog

3 Jul Photo(2)

Hand4Paws would like to inform all all the 12,644 supporters that gave a voice to Phoenix that today we celebrate a victory for animals! The maximum penalty has been given to one of the two teens that attacked him. Each person that made up the prosecution team defending Phoenix are heroes and deserve all of our love and respect for the victory attained today. The judge sentenced Adell Zeigler to two years in prison plus banning him from owning an animal for 7 years. He will start serving this sentence in the month of October of 2013. Right now he is still in jail because of other charges. It may not be enough time or punishment that he received compared to the torment that Phoenix lived through. The Judge gave maximum sentence and it is a step in recognizing that animal cruelty and abuse will be punished.

Thank you to the staff of Buffalo Small Animal Hospital for saving Phoenix’s life. This is your victory! This is a victory achieved by Phoenix. Thank you to the guardian angel and now human companion of Phoenix… He survived, he has the heart to forgive humans and still trust in the goodness and kindness of those around him. This is a victory for animals in New York. Today, human law has favored on a non-human animal. They are sentient beings that deserve for us humans to care for them and protect them.  Bravo to all that signed, shared, tweeted and gave a voice to little Phoenix.

While in jail, Adell Zeigler has been boasting via phone that he is now famous because of what he did to little Phoenix. He has no remorse; he shows no respect for life, he is a criminal and even District Attorney Frank Sedita called him a sociopath. The time passes fast and he will be out of prison, please share the article and petition so people know his name and his face. Those that hurt animals will hurt humans.

In the interview done today with Adell’s lawyer, Ann Nichols, expressed reproach for those compassionate people that wanted to adopt Phoenix and to the people that signed the petition and sent letters, we would like to extend a word of respect for taking the job of defending the person that is known for such a horrible crime. We are very sorry that the child protection services and those that are in government to protect the innocence of children failed Adell Zeigler.

Here is the article that came out today with the information of the case. Please be sure to watch the video.

NEW UPDATE ON BARCHIEL!

Update about Barchiel! Thanks to you all we were able to get to his rescue  $720 to help with his treatment. The other part of the money went to compensate a part of his transport. The rescuers and the those that did transports will always be in my prayers. Click here to read the article that Joyce Fields wrote about his transport.

There are some beautiful pictures of Barchiel on the rescue’s Facebook Page. He is such a professional model already! Click here to look at all of his pictures!

This is the letter that we received from Rachael from Sioux Empire Pit Rescue last Friday:

Hey Liliana, Barchiel is doing well. Heartworm injections are completed and now it’s just keeping him quiet for the next 60 days until the retest.He does have a cyst on his right foot in between his pads. He has started limping,  which as big as the cyst is,  does not surprise me. Barchiel is on remedyl for now to help with the pain. Our vet doesn’t want to remove it for at least 30 days after his heartworm injections,  so we will try to make him as comfortable as possible until then.His hip will be what it is – dislocated.. there is no way to set this once they are out. Since the injury has already started to heal we will just let the scar and muscle tissue continue to heal and keep him at a nice weight. The key to that is exercise to build muscle and strength and good weight management. We are still waiting for his babesia test results to come back from North Carolina – hoping to get those next week. Crossing my fingers he doesn’t have babesia. He did visit the vet again this Monday and the vet couldn’t believe how much better he looked in just one week! We both think it’s like a whole new dog!! He has been introduced to my household pets (cats and dogs) and is doing well – of course with close supervision and leadership. He is learning where he fits in with the pack. I have a household of senior citizens so his laid back demeanor fits right in. We are remodeling our bathroom and were painting last night. Needless to say,  he was on the sectional crashed out with the pack,  sleeping away. He is a goof ball too! When you let him out of his crate he will “high step” or prance around the room like he is the happiest boy in the world. He will also do that after he comes in from outside. We had another 8 inches of snow last night,  so he is getting a crash course in winter weather but seems to be enjoying it. We are letting him sleep with us at night for the time being,  until he can fully be trusted with the other animals. He loves his toy playtime – he’s one of the few fosters that I have had in my house that doesn’t rip them to shreds immediately. In the mornings I have to drag him out of bed to go outside. He would rather sleep – my kind of dog! That’s the first week and a half update! Hope all is well with you. Rachael

 

This is the new update today posted on the rescue’s Facebook Page:

Barchiel is having a wonderful time settling into his foster home. He isn’t sure about the last minute snow that has taken over April but he takes it all in good spirits! What a clown this boy is – a hoot and is recovering well from his heart worm treatment. http://pitrescue.weebly.com/barchiel.html

 

Please continue sharing Barchiel’s Story and Please give kindly to help this wonderful organization that responded within minutes of us asking for help for Barchiel. God Bless those that help Stray animals.

We are happy to inform you that Barchiel has found a rescue that will find him a happy forever home. Sioux Empire Pit Rescue is an all volunteer 501C3 rescue group in Sioux Falls South Dakota. Sioux Empire’s mission is to promote responsible Pit Bull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation, and find qualified homes for sound Pit Bull dogs in South Dakota.
Barchiel will be traveling from Edinburg, Texas all the way up to Sioux, South Dakota. This little guy is moving up state! Joy Benson has directed the transport operation for Barchiel. He will travel by car. Eight people are involved in a seven-state transport for him.
We are still asking for your help to cover the costs. So far, the online fundraiser has lost momentum and we are asking for your help to make this happen.  Find it in your hearts to give a little for dear Barchiel. This has been a long journey towards a happy ending for our now happy little friend!
So far, you have helped raise $696 for Barchiel. We still need $1,500 to cover all the miles he has to travel and medical expenses. Please give kindly. He still has a long way to go to a happy ending.
