Question for written answer E-004782-17

Rule 130

 Subject:  Killing of animals in shelters
 Answer in writing 

Under the current Croatian Animal Welfare Act (Article 57(4)) animals housed in shelters may be killed after they have been in the shelter for 60 days. Every year, therefore, a great many healthy animals in Croatian shelters are killed. Croatia does also have ‘no kill’ shelters, but there are only six, very few, given the number of shelters overall. Far from being confined to Croatia, this problem exists in other Member States as well, whose laws differ only in terms of the time lag allowed before an animal may be killed.

Has the Commission taken steps, or does it intend to do so, in order to reduce the unnecessary killing of healthy animals?
