Legislation & regulations
Letter to Agriculture Minister Desislava Taneva (in Bulgarian), 28 Jan 2015. On 25th January 2015, Agriculture Ministry revealed a doubtful draft bill that should affect the welfare of cats in a bad way. The draft did propose massive catching and collection of roaming cats plus vaccination and microchipping of all owned and unowned felines. Few months later, ministry just quitted all the schemes that would involve cats.
Open letter to Prime Minister of Bulgaria. PM Bojko Borisov made in August 2011 a draft proposal to the Animal Protection Act. The only changes proposed in the scope of pet population management were extending the term for neutering unwanted dogs and then impounding all them at "temporary animal shelters outside settlements" until the end of 2015. Animal Programs jumped against and drafted appropriate texts that could reduce dog and cat over-reproduction, pet population pressure, animal roam and abusive treatment of roaming animals.
