The Story

BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA IS ABOUT TO ENACT KILL-LAW AMENDMENTS TO THEIR ANIMAL WELFARE ACT THAT WILL HAVE DIRE CONSEQUENCES FOR THE STRAYS OF THE COUNTRY.

We have just days to assist the activists to make a final campaign to ensure the the amendments are voted against. They need funds for travel and other costs involved in meeting with relevant authorities and politicians and in costs involved in ensuring that all activists from all over the country can focus together; telephone costs; printing costs for campaign posters, flyers and much much more.

To find out more about the horrors that strays already experience in Bosnia Herzegovina please go to :

Details about the recent vote on the amendments and what happens next:

The proposal for changes to the Animal Protection and Welfare Law was legislated in the first reading in House of Representatives of Parliamentary Assembly last night. 18 representatives were for changes of the Law, and 12 representatives were against changes of the Law. 11 representatives were not present at the session of House of Representatives.

Further amendments can be proposed by 7th November.

The responsible committee (the Legal - Constitutional Committee of the House of Representative. Constitutional-Legal Committee monitors the compliance with the BiH Constitution) shall initiate debate on the proposed law and submit amendments.

This committee will debate on the proposed law and amendments on the 14th November.

The second reading of the proposed changes is scheduled for 20th November.

Should the responsible committee produce a report that accepts the proposed changes, both Houses (House of Peoples and House of Representatives) will debate the report and then vote on the proposed amendments, following the articles related to amendments.

What follows is voting on the proposed law in its final text.

Should the responsible committee disagree with the proposed changes that were voted for on the 28th October, this negative report can be accepted and the proposed law rejected, or the negative opinion can be rejected and the proposed law returned to the committee for reconsideration.

The activists in BiH have been working very very hard to do everything they can, with media reports, TV interviews/forums etc and a protest march today, 15 December in Sarjavo. 

And few days ago there was a TV forum on PINK TV all about the amendments and why the existing law was not implemented - all guests were activists or veterinarians and state veterinary inspector Inga Dujmovic was there also, Snezana Vidovic an actress from Zenica, the leader of SAPA Animal welfare organisation, Aida Cizmicfrom Prijatelji Mostar association was a guest as well and then cantonal veterinarians and veterinarian who works with a group called LOKOM in Novi Grad Sarajevo (dog catchers that activists have problems with), Jelena Paunovicwas a guest in audience and she asked questions (see attached picture).

Representatives of pro-kill law group UGRIZ (Stop bite - Stop ugrizu - http://ugriz.com/and here on FBhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/stopugrizu/) and the MP Nermina Zaimovic Uzunovic (original proposer of law) did not want to come to the debate because they claimed that the TV station has had biased approach in favor of activists from the very start that the show was ordered and paid for by activists  

Also, Dalida Kozlicwas a guest in a TV show "Answer to people" - live TV show on Federation of BiH TV. Other guests were Nermina Zaimovic Uzunovic, Adnan Omerdic (Stop bite - Stop ugrizu), Nihad Fejzic (dean of Veterinary faculty in Sarajevo), Semir Efendic (a mayor of Novi Grad where illegal hygienic service kills stray dogs) and Slavo Jovicic (SNSD) who iw against kill law. We hope to have a copy of this with translated subtitles soon.

What we can do, once again, is to continue to help with financial support: https://www.youcaring.com/kill-law
