More detailed proposals have already been submitted.

Introduce a scheme to help the animal feeders. There a lot of them that take care of stray animals. It will be a useful support, thanks
We already have a set up in malta called happy paws , the government needs to take it over or find EU funding for this as well , tweak the way the neutering was administered, by asking the NGOs or set up shop at San frangisk how it should have been done and not how it was opened up in the first place . PN is long overdo an overhaul in Animal rights and to help NGOs such as AAA and so many others that are struggling to help all the strays on the island
Overall it is OK but in my opinion each NGO should be entitled to perform individually. Meanwhile, goverment regulation and support is essential. Standards are easily written but unless help is provided they are difficult to be met. The government should not be expected to run a sanctuary. The volunteers are usualy committed to their work. As far as I know all sancutaries are "no kill". The law has been there with increasingly harsh penalties since 2001. The crucial word is "ENFORCEMENT"
.. and if the post of PS for animal rights is going to be retained, he/she should be a true animal lover.
Animal charities need to unite for a common cause. Strength in unity. Its about the animals!
We are their voice and i pretend that it should be heard .We spend thousands of euros from our own pockets to feed and take care of our strays. If the only clinic which spay and neuter our strays is closing it s doors , all the work we ve done during the years will go down the drain. Thousand of cats have been spayed and neutered and the problem although it eased alot we still have a long way to go ,so please help us help them.
It's about time we put a stop to this callous, insensitive, stoic and cold attitude and give these animals their rights. Enough is enough!!!!
The lack of a proactive animal organisation is truly being felt in Malta. Animal lovers have all witnessed the abuse and disinterest within the current Animal Welfare association - people with no real qualification or commitment to the safe capture and rehabilitation of stray animals. It has been left to the general public to take care of the animals in our streets, but one can only do so much within their private reach. Animal cruelty/neglect is hardly punished and calls in for harsher laws.
We should be the voice for those that cannot speak and i believe all animals have a right for food and sheltering!
animal also can have justice and rights
Animals should also have their right to live a happy safe life.
Animal charities in Malta have always been put on the back burner. It is time to remedy the current sad situation.
