EU and stray animals

The EU and stray animals.

We are getting a lot of questions about the EU and what they can do for the stray animals. Unfortunately, the EU leaves stray animal policy and regulations to each seperate individual country and does not get involved.

There are quite a few EU regulations concerning animal welfare, like for example regulations on transportation of animals, regulations regarding the protection of wildlife or rare species, but there is no such thing as regulations concerning stray animals. Stray animals are considered a national issue and no country will “interfere” in another country’s national policy.

To actually be able to achief anything through the EU, the first thing that is needed is to convince the EU to make stray animals part of the EU legislation. Because only then, they will be able to make stray animals regulations and to make EU countries follow these regulations. So this will be what we need to focus on first, but given the number of EU memberstates that have inhumane, or even no stray animals policies, it is going to be a slow and difficult process.

Of course you can contact the EU about this on the below addresses
