Sadly, buried in the distortions of the lies and errors in fact perpetrated against those of us in Europe and America who are rescuing, vetting and re-homing these animals, lie the bodies of thousands of homeless and abused Greek animals, the true victims of this nationwide idiocy and witch hunt and the broken spirits of too many people.Humane activists from around the world are actively protesting what has become a nationwide terror campaign aimed at destroying animal welfare in Greece.   Threats of physical harm and legal action against advocates are rampant; personal computers have been seized by out-of-control police, animal advocates tossed in Greek jails and their animals confiscated.For years, animal welfare organizations in Greece and countries around the world have been battling brutal animal abuse and neglect, and now they are rightfully battling the very law that is supposed to protect animals in Greece. Humane legislation 3170, passed in 2003 by the Pasok Parliament, is seriously deficient in ensuring sensible protection for animals. Convoluted and confusing, 3170 is causing a backlash against animal lovers who are attempting to rescue and re-home tens of thousands of neglected, abandoned and abused animals in Greece.

The law must be amended or repealed  The statutes mandate that local authorities be responsible for abandoned dogs, including their vaccination, sterilization, identification, re-homing and spay/neuter.

Purportedly, funding for these projects was disbursed for humane action programs. Yet, three years later, only a handful of nearly one thousand municipalities and communities in Greece have initiated humane programs. The result is devastating. Tens of thousands of abandoned dogs wander the streets, starving, multiplying and becoming the victims of poisonings or random acts of horrifying abuse.

Humane advocates are being falsely accused of dealing in illegal transport and dog trafficking to experimental labs for commercial gain. There is no proof – not one shred of evidence – to support these ludicrous allegations.

Each and every  court hearing ha s indeed been won by the defendants who have been forced to endure defamation of character and humiliation.  Sympathetic veterinarians , are being threatened with loss of license for facilitating the re-homing of dogs to loving families in Europe.

Animals on their way to these homes have been confiscated ; never to be seen again. The true victims of this senseless campaign are the animals.

Innocent Animals are taking the bullet for this nationwide folly. The law must be amended or repealed and those civil government employees and citizens responsible for this unjust campaign apprehended, stopped and punished.  

Safe passage to loving and permanent homes in Europe and the United States for the neglected and abused of Greece must be granted.
