450 Dogs to Be Evicted on Christmas Day - Massive International Protest

  • By: Laura Simpson
  • Target: Premijer Republike Srbije, Aleksandar Vučić (Prime Minister of Serbia), Predsednik Republike Srbije Tomislav Nikolić (President of Serbia), Prof.dr Zoran Perišić (Mayor of Niš)

Sasha Pesic runs an absolutely breathtaking cage-free dog sanctuary in Serbia. The dogs eat, play, run and sleep together peacefully. People come from far away countries just to visit this unique place. But today Sasha is facing a major crisis and the peace here is about to be shattered as the municipality of Nis has ordered the dogs to leave the sanctuary by December 25th.

Suddenly officials have decided it is more profitable to use the land for other purposes.  We stand united in our request to:

1. STOP THE EVICTION: Immediately reverse the decision for the sanctuary dogs to be brutally rounded up by dog catchers on Christmas. Relocation for so many animals would require many months and massive costs.

2. ASSESS THE VALUE: This shelter has independently provided food, shelter, veterinary services and care for hundreds and hundreds of strays who formerly roamed the city. All of this was done through private donations and in keeping with best practices for animal welfare. The city has benefited immensely from this free service.

3. MAKE IT BETTER: Rather than attack the very people who are trying to resolve the suffering of stray dogs in Nis, Serbia, we ask that the government take this opportunity to help improve operations at the shelter and to strive to make it one of the first in the country to meet standards set forth by the European Union.

450 Dogs Now Safe Because of You

Because of a quarter million of you signed our petition, the mayor in Nis, Serbia has removed the threat against the 450 dogs at Sasha Pesic's cage-free dog sanctuary. Though the dogs will have to move in 6 months, we now have time to prepare for the large expense of this mission.

Thank you and a very happy new year.
