Dogs are considered Man's best friend by many of us worldwide.
In many countries though..dogs are cruelly subjected to pain and torture.
We think of China...but no.. it happens in Portugal too..
The torture of the dogs is endless...
This petition hopes to raise the awareness, and get the Portugese Government to take a stand and increase the fines and penalties for the people found to be so cruel.
Portugal have few shelters and most of those are kill shelters.
Dogs are abused whilst in there.
Most dogs are kept on chains in the community ,AND have very little shade, in all weathers: heat ,rain etc..
The poor dogs health or feelings are not considered.
Apparently there is supposed to be a law ,which stipulates that dogs should not be chained and have some form of basic care...but this never gets enforced.
Strays ,or wild dogs as they call them ,are kicked ,abused and even..worse.
Your voice needs to be heard, and your signature is their survival.
The more humane people that sign the better chance we have to get an end to the cruelty.
LET'S BRING A CHANGE.. lets get ZERO TOLERANCE for animal cruelty in Portugal.
Thankyou for signing.
