Petition against animal cruelty
WILLEMSTAD - Animal abuse is common in Curaçao. Last week there were some pictures in the media of a dog with burned genitals and eyes. A group, which fights for the wellbeing of animals, has started a petition to get the attention of the people to this serious problem.
They also want the prosecution to act tougher action against animal cruelty.
The group consists of members of the I-Animal Foundation, Foundation Dog, Animal Protection Society, Curaçao Foundation for Animal, Alle Hadoc, Kuida Kabai, Pets Rescue Curaçao and Rescue Paws Curaçao and Curaçao. The animal lovers hope to increase the pressure and to collect as many signatures, which should end up with the competent authorities.
If you want to sign the petition you can do this. Volunteers are going to be this coming weekend at various locations. You can also sign online via the website.
