For those of you who have been following the plight of the dogs of Sopron, Hungary we have good news directly from those in charge of the case.

To this day 190 dogs have been placed in 21 animal shelters in Hungary.

Rescued Dogs From Sopron Cannot Yet Be Re-homed

We have given all shelters financial and material aid from the donations, thus these dogs are presently recuperating from their terrible ordeals under consolidated conditions.

The police are still conducting investigations pertaining to the case, we are waiting for them to hand over the case to the Prosecutor’s Office as, until this is going on the dogs cannot be re-homed or even neutered, they must remain at the shelters.

Luckily I can report that the majority are now accepting human contact, and food.

A large number of volunteers are visiting the shelters to help with socialization of the dogs.

If any one wishes to help, at the moment they can do so by writing to the Sopron Prosecutor’s Office or to the Minister of Interior, Ms Monika Lamperth ( Belgyminisztrium 1903 Budapest, Pf.: 314, Soproni Vrosi gyszsg 9400 Sopron, Sznhz u. 27. 9401 Sopron, Pf.: 24.T./Fax: (99) 312-052) to urge them to finalize the procedure as soon as possible in order that the dogs can be neutered and permanently re-homed and that their torturer’s punishment should become a precedent in Hungary.

Donate To The Welfare Of Rescued Dogs In Hungary

Since we do not know how long the court procedures will take at the Hungarian Courts we are still very much in need of your donations.

However we would like to ask that all who wish to give financial support for the care of the dogs should only do so through the bank account given below. This is the only one we can follow through in order to ensure that the donations reach the place you had originally intended them for!
