Large penalties, as well as imprisonment for up to 3 years for the murdering or mutilation of an animal have now become a part of Bulgaria’s penalty code. The Parliament has voted higher penalties for the organizing and taking part in animal fights, as well as sanctions for owners whose animals have caused physical harm to another person.


We are very happy that Bulgaria has joined the civilized world in ruling animal cruelty is a crime. We hope to now have the police working on the cases of animal cruelty occurring in Bulgaria daily.

    Bulgaria is a great nation with great citizens who opt not only the development of their country men but also fo nature in lieu of their strong morality and passion of cultural pride…Please Bulgarians, see how nature gifted you so much, what have you done for nature lately? It is the responsibility of every human, being created with the highest intellect, to care for the animals. Kindness is always repayed with Kindness. No animal will be a danger to any human once it sees Kindness in man’s actions.

    Bulgaria is becoming a leader in helping protect the strays…

    Let’s hope that this law DOES protect the animals and that ANYONE who breaks the law is dealt with severely irrespective of status or rank. Too many so called ‘law enforcers’ are as bad if not worse than the general public.
    Bulgaria has taken a huge step forward and given their animals hope, ALL COUNTRIES should follow suit … JAPAN, CHINA, CHOREA, ITALY, SPAIN, LEBANON, ROMANIA & so many more need to stop their barbaric treatment of helpless creatures and follow Bulgaria into the 21st century. WELL DONE BULGARIA!

    congratulations. In Romania killing an animal is a national pride. We have a law that protects animals, but police smile when a dog is tortured or a horse beaten or starved to death. Now our politicians, with the president of our country who wants to kill all dogs for money.
