Parliamentary questions
17 June 2013
E-005276/2013
Answer given by Mr Borg on behalf of the Commission

Reference is made to the answers to written questions E‐006543/2011, E-007161/2011, and E-002062/2012(1) which address the issues of stray dogs and of dog population management.

The Commission has no specific role regarding the way animal shelters are managed by the national competent authorities and there is no such possibility to fund shelters for stray animals at the level of the European Union.

The protection of stray animals falls within the sole competence of the Member States.
