Hello everyone!
Im sorry to write the following.
Due to the situation in Israel the animal shelter in Atarot is in trouble. It is located in an area that the access to is dangerous now with the situation in Israel. Because of that almost all the workers of the shelter have left and the vets clinic, that used to be a main source of income has closed due to the fact that people stopped coming and the vet left out of fear of risking her life getting there.
Even worse, dogs and cats have hardly been rehomed in this period (since September).
Because of all the above the animal shelter is in big financial problems. The city municipality doesnâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t help financially the shelter. It also failed to provide an alternative, more accessible, location for the shelter. More over the cityâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s vet is a strong believer of putting stray dogs to sleep, which he explains, by use of fear, that these dogs come from the Arab villages around and are sick and a threat to the public.
If there wonâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t be any change, more than 180 dogs and 80 cats are in risk of being put to sleep.
It would be a huge help if you could write a letter to the mayor- Olmert, and to the secretary of tourism. Please write that you were thinking visiting Israel and Jerusalem, but due to Jerusalemâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s policy you are thinking twice about it.
Im adding olmerts E-mail & FAX.

I have sent my thoughts along to Israel - it is sad that such strife in a country has to be taken out on the lesser creatures - those who cannot defend themselves.
