Suggested Title: Please Stop the Killing of Homeless Animals in Ukraine
Dear Mr. Ambassador,
The spotlight will soon be on Ukraine for the 2012 European Football Championship, but please act now to stop the massacre of homeless dogs in Ukraine, who are being shot on sight or poisoned and left to suffer in an attempt to "cleanse" cities before the championship begins.
