Last week, the religious leader of Jordan issued a fatwa – an instruction to kill every street dog in the country. Thousands of dogs have been shot, their bodies, riddled by gun fire and more are dying each day.
In response to enormous pressure from our supporters, the government of Jordan has ‘officially’ ended the programme saying the religious leaders instruction had been misinterpreted.

The Grand Mufti’s fatwa is still being taken literally people throughout the land who have paid no attention to the government’s attempt to stop it. As I write this. in town after town, men armed with automatic weapons are systematically killing every street dog they see!
Jordan’s most senior religious figure, Grand Mufti, Dr. Mohammad Al-Khalaileh, issued the fatwa – a religious instruction to Muslims – to kill the dogs. To justify the slaughter, he quoted Prophet Mohammed as saying dogs are unclean.
As animal lovers we have no option but to fight this dog genocide by every means possible. We must put even more pressure on the Jordanian government to clamp down on the mass murder of dogs. It is our duty as animal lovers to do whatever we can to stop this, before there are no dogs left in Jordan.

I have received many emails pointing out that Islam stresses kindness to animals. I urge all our supporters to remember that Prophet Mohammad repeatedly forbade cruelty to animals.
The most important thing right now is to spread the word about the unspeakable cruelty and horror that is unfolding. And, please make a donation, we can’t fight this without your financial support. That is the simple truth.
For the animals,
P.S. This is a BAD AS IT GETS! It’s a MASSACRE! Please, spread the word now and be as generous as you possibly can. Together we will stop the killing!
