IASI ACTION ALERT
POLITELY URGE THE MAYOR NOT TO DESTROY THE GOOD WORK HE HAS DONE IN HIS MUNICIPALITY BY DISCONTINUING THE CATCH,NEUTER & RELEASE PROGRAMMES
Today it has been learnt that because of a few complaints by misinformed and biggoted people within his community that the Mayor of Iasi Mr Ghe Nichita, is not only going to discontinue working with NGO's such as Romania Animal Aid and Romanian Action but has already started to allow neuterd and spayed dogs to be dragged into the local shelter. Also that he is because of a few backward thinking local people is considering euthanising the strays in Iasi including those on the streets currently and also in the city shelter.
Now is the time that we all need to be contacting the mayor . The main points I have highlighted in bold, please do write your own correspondence around these points, but also add your own. Remember, with this guy, be very polite and applaud his efforts and sucess in the past with the catch neuter and release programmes he committed himself and his city to.
This guy is not yet our enemy, please dont make him one Polite,firm and commend him for his efforts so far, but remind him of the horrific mistakes made in the past before he committed himself and his city to the catch,neuter and release programmes.
Strongly urging him to stay committed to his spay/neuter and return efforts, this is the only proven long-term solution to effectively manage the over-population problem. Every expert in the subject of stray dog management adheres to this, and it was surely because of his intelligence and forward thinking in understanding this that he committed his municipality to such programmes.
Remind him that a rushed decision based upon a handful of backward thinking individuals could potentially be a landmine of problems in the future. Not only in regards to his and his provinces public image locally and nationally, but also on an international level.
Remind him what affect the Mayor of Botosani had on Romanias public and international image when he made a similar decision last month, ask him why he would even think of making again the mistakes of the past and cave in to a few uneducated and biased inidviduals who know no different. If he was to start euthanising the shelter and street dogs, this would not only be inhumane but would reflect extremely badly on his city in the eyes of the majority of his citizens and also the International community in general.

If you live in Romania, especially in Iasi, the mayor really needs to hear from you, he needs to hear the majority of citizens in his city are against euthanasia and support the catch ,neuter and release programmes instead.
