Don’t Kill Homeless Dogs and Cats Before World Cup Event in Russia

Target: Pavel Kolobkov, Russian Sports Minister

Goal: Do not allow local officials in 11 Russian cities to cull homeless pets before the FIFA World Cup event.

Russia will be hosting this year’s FIFA World Cup in 11 different cities across the country. In order to “ensure security and a pleasant stay,” the Russian government has authorized these cities to kill thousands of homeless dogs and cats living on the streets, a move similar to one taken before the Sochi Winter Olympics. We must demand that a more humane solution be reached that does not cause harm to these animals.

The innocent cats and dogs of Russia do not deserve to be killed simply because they have nowhere else to go. Sign this petition and demand that the sports minister keep his word and ensure that no homeless pets are harmed in the hosting cities.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Kolobkov,

Russia has a massive stray pet population, with over two million dogs and cats believed to be living in cities without homes. While this is a serious issue that deserves to be addressed, these animals deserve to be treated humanely and with respect. They do not deserve to be killed off in droves in the cities hosting the FIFA World Cup simply because their presence is inconvenient or looks bad.

We, the undersigned, ask that you ensure that these innocent animals do not meet the same sad fate so many others had before the Sochi Winter Olympics and other major events in your nation. Please do the right thing and ensure these animals are given humane treatment.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Do you not have any rescue groups and veterinarians in your country that can spay and neuter stray animals rather than killing them? Have some compassion!

    • I agree with Mary R Reider.
      Please give the animals a second chance I did I took in a 10 year old cat that some how lost its way back home, and he is the sweetest cat.

      Emma–i understand what you’re saying as I live in California. The dogs they are talking about are in Russia. They don’t have the ASPCA there. They may have other organizations but unfortunately many countries over there don’t treat their animals as we do ours. I’ve heard they don’t really grow with dogs as pets so don’t have the understanding as we do.

    Take care of your dogs and cats by putting them in shelters like other humane countries. PLEASE BE a more compassionate than BARBARIC countries like CHINA, N.KOREA, S.KOREA AND THE REST OF THESE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE COUNTRIES. THANK YOU.

    This is just crazy.

  5. Barbara Mennel says:

    Please be humane and treat these dogs with the respect and kindness they deserve!

    Thank you for including cats in this petition.
    As I can see in many comments, it seems that dogs are the focus of rescue. Cats suffer as much, if not more, than dogs do. Primarily because they do have that “2nd class status”. Just look here in the comments. Very sad.

    ANIMAL LOVERS – please fight for ALL animals.

  7. I guess if Russians allow anyone with a dissenting opinion to Putin to be killed , they are not going to care that much about homeless animals.

    Don’t they say judge a country by how it treats its animals but in Russia they can’t even treat their own citizens with respect.

    I hope someone / some people cares enough to stop this from happening.
