Say NO to animal cruelty!

Animal Rescue Sofia supports the  campaign for the incrimination of cruelty to animals in Bulgaria.

While we continue to wait for changes in the Penalty Code animal cruelty has come to Bogrov shelter.

Early morning on 28.08.2010 one of our puppies – little Jessy who was ment to go to her new family this very day, was found brutally murdered and skinned at the shelter ground. What reamined of her was put out as some sick sort of a demonstation on the shelter premises – WARNINGgraphic IMAGE.

We have immedeately alerted the police and will follow the investigation closely. Information of this vile, cruel act has been aired on Nova TV, bTV, Pro-BG, BBT, dir.bg, 24 chasa, Standart and CNN.

Changes in the Penalty code of the republic must be made for the authorities to be able to prosecute animal abuse. Bulgaria, Bosnia and Albania are the only European countries that don’t consider animal abuse a crime:
