Open letter to the Government of Italy

Why allow, the Government of Italy, its citizens, to still act irresponsible and allow dogs to multiply uncontrollably so that the country still has stray dogs?

When will Italy as a Member State of the European Union since 1952, to take responsibility and implement laws (and ensure that existing laws are followed) addressed to the people of Italy? - which is the root cause of the problem of abandoned and homeless companion animals - dogs that the country later renames to stray dogs - when will Italy learn from other countries in Europe that do not have stray dogs?

When will Italy as a Member State of the European Union, recognize that it is contrary to the EU constitutional and European Conventions, to blame the abandoned companion animals and through official and unofficial laws and edicts carry out atrocities against dogs and cats to eliminate the number of abandoned and homeless animals?

Western Europe has no stray dogs since effective laws exist to prevent this. These laws should be urgently introduced throughout the EU and Europe like Dog Ownership Registry that works like this: Read more under PETITION on top.

Western Europe has no stray dogs since effective laws exist to prevent this. These registry and laws should be urgently introduced throughout the EU and Europe.


Dog Ownership Registry works like this:
A dog registry is a registry for ALL dogs in a country (purebred and mixed breeds) and for anyone who has a dog - the dog/dogs is linked to an owner. The registry is usually handled by the Board of Agriculture. All dogs in the country are legally required to have ID markings, either by tattoo or microchip. This shall be done by an approved veterinarian.


All dogs in the registry always has a registered owner, which means that the registry is a dog ownership registry. All dogs in the country will always be identified with one owner. The register contains the dog's ID number and the social security number and housing data of the owner.


If a dog changes owner, the register is updated by the new owner, so that the dog always has an owner who is responsible for the dog. You as a dog owner has a duty to take care of your dog in the best way and to follow the directives and animal protection laws. You are also required to take care of your dog in such a way so that the dog does not disturb the community, for example, to ensure that the dog does not reproduce without supervision.


As an example, this is the Swedish Board of Agriculture central dog register  (translated by Google). Fees are a one time fee for each owner and costs about $ 8 or 6 Euro (not $ 50 as in the translation of this page).


These registry, most Western European countries have, and they have not abandoned and homeless dogs - Since many countries shows for decades to have communities with no abandoned and homeless dogs - can any country do this, if the governments provides citizens the correct tools and laws.


The Government of Italy must immediately introduce Dog Ownership Registry and that ALL dogs are ID tagged by Microchip and registered with a responsible owner. That the owner is obliged by law to have such a watch over the dog - so that the dog does not cause problems for the community, for example, multiply by mistake - and the registered dog owner is obliged to provide basic care for the dog according to laws, regulations, conventions and treaties and that this must be respected.


We, the citizens of Europe, wonder why this is not yet implemented and why Italy as a Member State of the European Union chooses cruelty to animals by cruel dog catching methods and deliberate starvation and assassination of dogs in municipal enclosures - rather than targeted laws to those responsible - namely, the citizens of Italy - so that the cruel management of stray dogs ends.
