Our Association has made pressure through street protests for changing the legislative framework for the management of stray dogs. Despite the aggressive opposition of extremist organizations engaged in fighting against euthanasia stray dogs, animated by financial interests being proven by numerous media inquiries, legislator voted on a bill that ultimately is not only constitutional and European, but also highly necessary for the protection of citizens. The law has been confirmed by the Constitutional Court and the President promulgated.
