Urgent Appeal by Betheirvoice 

An unimaginable Mass Slaughter of Jordan's dog population is currently taking place unchecked and unreported by mainstream Media. The Mass Slaughter of Jordan's dog population began almost overnight in October 2017, when Jordan's Grand Mufti, Dr. Mohammad Al-Khalaileh, issued a fatwa to kill ALL stray dogs following the death of a young child who was bitten by a dog,. She was taken to a hospital and instead of treating the wound properly, she died from an infection.

Petition Letter

We call upon His Majesty, King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein of Jordan to bring and immediate end to the fatwa issued by Grand Mufti, Dr. Mohammad Al-Khalaileh and call upon ALL people of Jordan to cease, immediately, this unimaginable, inhumane slaughter of all dogs of Jordan.

Jordan is a country which like many across the globe suffers from over population and the consequential stray dog issue.  As long back as 1990 the World Health Organisation and the WSPA released a report that stated the most effective method is combination of:

  • Sterilisation (at least 70% of the she-dogs)
  • Education (responsible dog ownership, breeding, dumping)
  • Registration (identification of both animal and owner)

We urge His Majesty to invest time and resources with the assistance of Jordan's animal welfare organisations to implement sustainable humane management of the canine population, via a sustained vaccination and neutering policy. Let Jordan be an example of Islam's humanity.

Update #12 years ago
On November 12, Jordan’s Dar al-Iftaa issued a new fatwa, quoting the Koran’s call for mercy toward animals and clarifying that animals should only be killed in self-defense, and even then, only humanely. Yet the killings have continued, and will go on unless legal and social solutions are found.
