Tomorrow evening, the Member the Animal Welfare Intergroup, Davor Škrlec MEP (Greens/EFA CR),  and Eurogroup for Animals will present Maria Slough’s film “A Dog’s Life’, which will be screened during an event taking place from 19.00 – 21.30 in room ASP A1 G3, at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The gathering will open with a cocktail reception and will be followed by the screening of the film. Maria Slough’s documentary is about a journey that brought British actor and animal advocate, Peter Egan and veterinary surgeon Roger Bralow to meet the stray dogs of Sarajevo. It exposes the inhumane conditions that hundreds of dogs endure in run down shelters. ‘A Dog’s Life’ follows also the work of Milena Malesevic from Saving Suffering Strays- Sarajevo  who has been rescuing stray dogs from the streets of Sarajevo for more than 30 years and still continues, together with her team, to help strays in their daily struggle to survive.

After the screening an expert panel moderated by Reineke Hameleers from Eurogroup for Animals will explore humane ways of dealing with stray dog populations in Eastern Europe and will call for EU guidance on humane stray pet population management.
