Father Anthony and the homeless dogs of Bosnia. Support is needed. Not money - just your support.

Have received this request from Tash at Animals Australia.

Please help Father Anthony continue 
to save the dogs in Bosnia - 
don't let the Bishop shut him down

I grew up under the Capuchins -
an offshoot of the Franciscans.
I support Franciscan ideals.

Please sign the petition.

Hi all,  I know we get a lot of petitions from time to time, but this one resonated with me.  This does not ask for money - just support. 

Wondering if you guys would be interested in signing this petition.  It is in German but I'll give you the gist of it.
Father Anthony works in the Francine Church in Bosnia.  He has dedicated his life to rescuing, treating and rehoming dogs off the street and has done this for years.  He is a vego and loves animals so it is no surprise that he works in the Francine chapel for St Francis of Assissi,as some of you will know, is the patron saint of animals. He has a small number of people who also assist him in this project
None the less, the Catholic Bishop has now given Father Anthony until mid Aug to get rid of all his dogs and clean up / close down his operation. He will no longer be allowed to rescue the dogs and well, given how bad things are in Bosnia, these dogs will undoubtedly perish/suffer terribly on the streets. If he doesn't do so, he and th people who assist him, will also be out on the streets without jobs. I am sending this around to assist in getting as many petitions as possible.  
This is the story of one man who IS making an incredible difference and will be shut down for doing so.  Please help spread the word and let Father Anthony know he has support.
Please spread the word
I shall pass through this world but once, any good thing therefore I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now, let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.

 The animals you eat are not those who devour others; you do not eat the carnivorous beasts, you take them as your pattern. You only hunger after sweet and gentle creatures who harm no one, which follow you, serve you, and are devoured by you as the reward of their service.
John Jacques Rousseau
God loved the birds and invented trees.  Man loved the birds and invented cages.

The history of cancer research has been a history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades, and it simply didn’t work in humans.
