نظراً لعدم تجاوب البلديات في المدن والقرى الفلسطينية لأصوات عديدة تطالب بوقف عمليات قتل الكلاب الممنهجة في فلسطين، سنقوم بمبادرة جديدة حيث سنطرق أبواب الممولين للبلديات علناً مطالبينهم بممارسة الضغط على البلديات لوقف الاعتداءات الصارخة على الحياة البرية في فلسطين. وكبادرة أولى في هذا الاتجاه، سنقوم بتوجيه الرسالة أدناه إلى عدة ممولين لبلدية رام الله لدعم توجهاتنا في ايجاد حلول رحيمة للكلاب بعيداً عن الرمي بالرصاص والتسميم. نرجو من حضرتكم توقيع العريضة لنجمع حشد وفير لهذه المبادرة.

شكراً لكم

We, a group of constituents of Ramallah city, are writing this plea letter to your institution - being one of the major donors of Ramallah Municipality - in order to kindly ask you to support our pledge to stop the brutal killing of the dogs in Ramallah.

Ramallah Municipality is implementing a systematic killing of dogs in the city by gun shooting and/or poisoning. We perceive this as an unethical and cruel act against the innocent lives of dogs. The locals documented and taped several incidences where dogs were being shot and left to bleed to death for hours in the streets, or were even being poisoned and thus endured a prolonged and painful death. In some cases, the puppies were left behind the deceased mother. This irresponsible action has a negative environmental impact on endangered species as the poisoning has also unintentionally killed other animals and birds, including foxes, cats, crows, eagles and hawks.

Violence breeds nothing but more violence. We strongly believe that there are humane approaches to the problem of stray dogs that have been implemented around the world and proved to be successful including the development of animal shelters and implementing neutering programs.

Our attempts to stop the killing of dogs have not been any fruitful. Several community members contacted the Municipality and unfortunately, the council members are persistently turning a blind eye to the killing of dogs.

We trust that your institution respects and values all forms of life, and has zero tolerance towards violence against living beings. We highly appreciate your ongoing financial support for Ramallah Municipality and are confident that your generous pledged donation and joint projects can considerably influence the Municipality’s actions and contribute to bringing about a time when there is no more killing of dogs in Ramallah.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to your insights regarding this matter.

Warm regards,

Constituents of Ramallah City
