Letter From The Humane Center for Animal Welfare, Jordan.

On September 14, I wrote about the Jordanian municipality pick-up truck in my neighborhood that was shooting stray dogs between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM. 

I sent a letter to the Humane Center for Animal Welfare in Jordan and they wrote back. Here’s part of the letter:

Thank you for bringing this attrocity to our attention.
HCAW started a campaign 5 years ago to develop humane ways of stray animal control that most other parts of the world apply.
HCAW was the moving force to bring staff from the WSPA, the World Society for the Protection of Animals (UK) to demonstrate humane methods of capture and seminars were provided to the Municipality  Amman free of charge.
Follow up meeting and letters with the Mayor of Amman and his staff have taken place, and although we have succeeded in our cooperation with the Municipality concerning Pet Shop standards and licensing, this dangerous and inhuman practice still goes on.
Thank you very much for taking the trouble to inform us. I look forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes
Margaret Ledger
