Cats & dogs: Our family

Millions of them share our homes with us today. These intelligent and sensitive animals have blessed us with their unconditional love for thousands of years. Yet these individuals are the most exploited and badly treated of all the animals, and in many ways: subject to experiments, trafficking, imprisoned in a life of breeding, training for shows, and additionally for dogs: hunting and guard dog duties. As well as all of this, there is the mistreatment and cruelty punished by law which continues in France: abandonment, the illegal fur industry, fighting, and abuse in some homes.

We, the undersigned, ask for an immediate modification of the legal status of dogs and cats so they are no longer considered as property, but as non-human persons.

In recognition of our companions, cats and dogs.

As we live with our dogs and cats we are under the false impression that they are out of danger. In fact they are not sufficiently protected and unfortunately are subject to much mistreatment and cruelty which is not adequately punished by the law.

There are those who are subjected to laboratory experiments. With no rights, they suffer mentally as much as they suffer physically.

There are those who are used as reproductive machines, females who produce litter after litter, and the subsequent trafficking of these litters which ensues.

There are those used as an instrument for hunting, security, safeguarding, competitions, and those that we file or eliminate when they are no longer needed.

There is abuse which is 'educational', institutionalised, in clubs, and brutal training sessions. Electric collars are used, even for cats, when we know the trauma that they cause.

There are also acts of pure cruelty, cats drowned or burned alive like Griffin, dogs raped as in Léa's story, as well as the shouting, the blows… and the cases of abandonment. We estimate that around 10 million cats live and die in the street.

Cats and dogs are our companions; they are an important part of our family. Please help give them a legal status that provides them with the protection that they deserve!
