(THE LETTER TO SEND)
To whom it may concern,
It has come to my attention that the Division of municipal and housing Inspection Nis, Serbia (Red Cross municipal) has given an order for 450 dogs in care of Sasa Pesic to be removed within 15 days.
The order was served to Svetlana Dejanovic – Avramovic who is the president of the ‘Drustvo Za Zastitu ZIvotinja Nis’ on the 4th of December 2014. Reference Number 355-700/2014-06.
I am an animal welfare activists and we have been made aware of the situation mentioned above.
I have great concern for the welfare of these 450 dogs if you insist on their move.
It is unrealistic that 450 live animals can be moved and housed safely in 2 weeks.
Where do you propose that they should go?
Medijana has no room for them.
These dogs we are talking about now, are vaccinated, the environment they’re in is clean and they are contained and therefore do not pose a threat to general public.
The dogs have been there for years because the City of Nis has failed to deal with the stray population according to Serbian Animal Welfare laws. These dogs have been vaccinated, neutered and fed by a number of foreign organisations.
Foreigns Animal Welfare organisations from Austria, USA, Belgium and UK offer free spaying and neutering for the privately owned pets as well as strays, again something that the city of Nis is not doing a very good job of.
Over the years, 1500 strays have been taken care of, neutered and rehomed or housed in shelters by foreign organisations. That is 1500 dogs you did not have to fund from the city budget, we will continue to do so as well as try and educate the public about the importance of sterilisation. This was all done via the Drustvo Za Zastitu Zivotinja Nis members who are all volunteers with the help of their dog loving friends from abroad.
Austrian organisations as well as organisations from USA, UK and Belgium visit the shelters across Nis and help out as much as they can. These organisation also bring many people to Nis several times every year. They stay in local hotels, eat at your restaurants, visit your tourist attractions, buy in your shops. As a supporter I spend money in your city!
We are very disappointed that you wish to move the dogs you failed to take care of in the first place away from what is an only safe environment they have ever had. It is my understanding that the City of Nis was meant to build an EU standard approved shelter for stray animals by 31.05.2012.
I urge you to reconsider your decision now. I fully understand that the current shelter is not up to the EU standard, and therefore I ask you to help bring it up to the EU standard, offer an alternative location which is as good as or better to move these dogs to or lastly, extend our stay there for another 12 months.
Cities such as London, UK have shelters in the middle of the city (Battersea Dogs and Cats Home). Also in Austria we have pubic shelters close to residential areas, so does Belgrade.
I ask you to help create a Serbia’s first shelter that is up to EU standard and that welcomes visitors.
Unlike in Serbia, most of Western world does not see dogs as a problem or a pest. They are greatly loved family members and Sasa and his dogs are very popular and have a great international following. It would be a shame having to go public with the story about the City of Nis making 450 dogs homeless through no fault of their own, without making an effort to work out a plan for where these dogs could go.
I think that citizens who have been solving an important public job for years now, without using any resources from the Budget of RS can not be punished for that.
Everybody should go on solving the problem in the best way, finding a solution to improve this shelter till it has a legal status according to serbian law regulatives. It can’t be that city authorities cancel it.
On the contrary, this shelter could be attractive and this city can be proud of it. The relocation of these dogs should be done by JKP Mediana which is a public enterprise that owns an illegal shelter itself.
I eagerly await your response/best regards
