In the Appeal to the Government GSPSA mentioned:
We hope that new government will not leave this appeal without attention and will not repeat mistakes made during last years, which gave us population destabilization, uncontrolled illnesses, unnatural migrations, extinction of species, increased number of stray animals and increased aggression, misuse of state funds, estrangement and frustration of the animal loving intellectual part of our society, mass and systematic culling of animals with unacceptable methods.
Participating NGOs in this action urge Georgian government and parliament:1. Ratification of International Declaration of Animal Rights. 2. Ratification of European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals 3. Updating and tightening the legislation about animal protection
We demand the legislative body, ministries and municipalities to take right and competent decision according animal population control, what will create a basis for local, international and donor organizations to support this job. All of these will help our country to develop and progress.
The full text will be sent to animal protection organizations in Georgia and as well as in Georgia and abroad with international organizations, embassies, consulates. Also to the Government of Autonomous Republic of Adjara and other administrative regions.
