I know I personally don’t like to sign up to anything online that wants my email address. But The Petition Site has proven to me that they don’t sell my address over the years I’ve used it. You also can opt out of posting your name publicly.
So please – if you are reluctant to sign an online petition for those reasons, change your mind for this? “Stop killing stray dogs/cats and initiate a humane Stray Animal Management in Bar, Montenegro”
One of the first blogs I ever followed and had follow me in return was all about a simply stunning Oriental Shorthair named Osyaka. In the years that we have been blog buddies, I have come to call her a friend.
However, what she does when not taking stunning photos of her beautiful cat is heart-wrenchingly hard. Hard to read about, hard to see, and hard on her mentally, financially and physically.
My friend has a mission to help the cats of Montenegro, where she lives. It is a beautiful place, a member of the UN and an applicant to the European Union, with a harsh history of war and has only been independent since 2006. Montenegro is putting a lot of effort into to be a tourist destination and has had good success.
However, they aren’t taking care of their animals. Stray dogs and cats roam the streets. The dogs are roaming in packs and killing the stray cats. There are no shelters. Worst of all, the animals that don’t die by other means are being poisoned secretly without any interference by – and possibly the support of – the authorities.
Visit my friend’s blog here: The Cats of Montenegro Not updated recently, there are still enough photos and stories there to break your heart. Her Facebook page and Twitter have a lot of updates.
Please sign, please share. No one is listening unless we shout loud.
Dog pack running wild in Bar, Montenegro.
Moosia, who has a tumour and is getting surgery but will be back on the streets if no one adopts her.
What a horrible plight! Am glad you’re calling attention to it!
It’s actually worse than I even say – and so exhausting for her to see this every day in her city and have no one care.
I can only imagine! Hopefully, what you’re doing will raise awareness and get someone acting over there!
Thank you for doing what I’ve been too disorganized to do. Not that very many people visit my page any more, for whatever reason. But I signed this petition a few days ago, and I tweeted it all to hell and back, and I second your assurances about the petition site. They’ve never brought crap into my life for signing, and I can’t count how many times I’ve found a petition posted through them to be worth signing.
I’ve been meaning to for months as well. The petition was the kick I needed.
Reblogged this on Sixteen Tons and commented:
I don’t know why I didn’t have the astuteness to do this, since I signed the petition, but Spiders did. I’ve followed Alexandra for years now. The work she does for urban ferals in Montenegro is humbling. Follow the links in Spiders’ post to her Usyaka blog.
It’s a heartbreaking world that Alexandra inhabits but what a heart she brings to it.
I would have no qualms about signing this… but do you think it will actually do any good? (I hope so)
Signatures from all over the planet – they have to pay attention to that?
“They” who? The police? No they don’t. lol You know how many “nuts” there are on the internet. Not that we’re nuts, but you could prob find plenty of people on the internet willing to sign a petition to declare chocolate and cigarettes a vitamin! lol
