The petition “Europe must assume responsibility for millions of stray animals!” was handed over in Brussels!
Under the title “Europe must assume responsibility for millions of stray animals!”, Ärzte für Tiere handed over a petition aimed at the creation of a uniform trans-European Animal Welfare Act to Mrs. Erminia Mazzoni (President of the EU Petitions' Committee) in the parliament building in Brussels.
Members of the delegation were representatives of Pfotenhilfe Europa e.V., ( Birgit Lewe), Nathalie Klinge of SOSDogs from the Netherlands, Marion Löcker of Robin Hood e.V. from Austria, Dieter Ernst of ETN e.V. and Hans-Joachim Richter of Ärzte für Tiere.
A response is not expected to be given by the EU before February or March of 2012!
On this occasion a short consultation took place with Eva Lichtenberger of the Austrian Green Party as well as with Jörg Leichtfried of the Austrian SPÖ.
