Parliamentary questions
19 June 2013
E-007237-13
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Robert Sturdy (ECR)

 Subject:  Craiova dog shelter in Romania
 Answer(s) 

It has been brought to my attention that on 2 June 2013, NGO volunteers were denied access to a dog shelter in the Romanian city of Craiova to monitor what was happening inside. The volunteers had concerns about the welfare and treatment of the animals inside, as a vet known for his previous mistreatment of animals was practising at the shelter. Furthermore, the NGO volunteers also had evidence that the dogs were being prematurely euthanised.

1. Could the Commission confirm that no EU funds were used to fund the unnecessary and premature euthanasia of dogs in this shelter?

2. Is the Commission undertaking educational programmes aimed at improving animal welfare in the city of Craiova?
