"The Greatness of a Nation and it's Moral Progress can be judged by the way its animal are treated" - Mahatma Gandhi
We the undersigned ask you to close down MSAW's dog catch and kill unit and dog pound in Port Louis with immediate effect, on the grounds of MSAW's multiple violation of the animal welfare act 2013, which is clearly documented on video footage and pictures https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVdSlcPQ2Us.
We request that either a new team of experienced animal welfare / animal rights personnel replace the existing MSAW management and staff or another animal welfare society be appointed with the stray dog control task. We ask that a humane stray dog population control with sterilisation campaigns be launched as this has proven to be effective in so many other countries. STOP the CRUELTY by MSAW NOW!
MSAW- MAURITIUS SOCIETY ANIMAL WELFARE! As it says it should be about our animal welfare BUT we all know and now is confirmed that this is not the case!! MSAW is acting on behalf of Inhumane treatment, welfare is not what they do and their name a totally misleading!
We need to speak out for those little souls as they cannot speak for themselves all they know what to do is love!
