Stop Killing Stray Dogs With Acid


Target: Mayor Pak Fetrat of Shiraz

Goal: Stop the inhumane killing of stray dogs using acid.

In Iran, stray dogs are being executed by injecting acid into their veins, causing the animals an agonizingly slow and painful death. This inhumane method needs to stop immediately.

The Shiraz Municipality has taken on the task of dealing with the city’s stray dog problems by hiring contract killers who go out, round up large groups of innocent dogs, hold them down and inject acid into their veins. They then look on, holding the animal down as the animals die a slow and painful death, screaming and writhing in pain.

Nothing deserves to be killed in such a terrible way. These poor creatures are innocent enough, as their only crime is simply being born. To put any living creature to death in such a way is unfathomable. But the people in charge of their executions seek simple and cheap ways to end the dogs’ lives. An animal’s life is a precious thing, and though they don’t deserve to die at all, they at the very least should be given a humane and painless end.

(Warning, the video is very graphic.)

Sign this petition to tell Mayor Pak Fetrat of Shiraz to stop allowing the city’s stray dogs to be killed in such a vicious and cruel way.


Dear Mayor Pak Fetrat,

It has come to the attention of the international animal loving community that stray dogs in your city are being killed through terrible and inhumane means. Contract killers are injecting acid into the dogs’ veins and watching them die a slow and painful death, screaming and writhing in agony.

This is an outright tragedy. So many innocent animals, whose only fault is being born, are being killed in a way that no living creature deserves. It saddens me and many others to know that you are allowing this to go on in your city.

The killers are trying to save money using this barbaric and almost sadistic method, but there is no cutting corners when it comes to taking the life of an innocent creature. This current course of action simply will not do and is inexcusable. I and countless others around the world implore you to take alternative actions in dealing with the stray dog population within your city.

Stop the inhumane killing of these dogs. Find a different, more humane way of solving this problem. These animals deserve at least that much.

  1. This is horrible cruelty. My dog, Blondie, was frightened by the sounds coming from the executed dog!

    • those who ordered the killing and those who inject the fatal shot are not human beings. No wonder why!

  2. Such cruel and psychopathic behavior toward animals, innocent living beings — clearly, a solution created by a mentally deficient idiot — the suffering and torture these dogs are undergoing — how could anyone good and noble and civil and decent and respectable allow this!?

  3. I think that in Middle Eastern countries animal welfare still has a long way to go.

  4. HORROR !

  5. Acid on dogs? Where do these wretched animal hating scumbags come from? Kill them all and then watch the world become a much better place!

    • You are ordering for human massacre, that is civilized for sure!

      • Shut the hell up . Treating helpless animals that can’t even defend thereselves that way . I don’t care how that country ends up . They all need to stop doing dumb ass shit

    These god damn third world countries should all just kill each other…this is fucking barbaric and that poor dog and that little baby puppy! They should inject each other with ACID! Where is this okay in any civilized society? Oh that’s right they AREN’T CIVILIZED they ARE MONSTERS!!!!!!!!!!

    Abuse is the ultimate betrayal towards any living soul and absolutely heartbreaking all the way around. You simply can not do such a horrific thing without it killing the best in you. Period. But in case there are any out there who couldn’t care less about torturing animals – which says a lot about you, as well – then think on this: If you find people happily willing to hurt an animal in any way, they are actually finding a venue to act out their deepest, most inner evil fantasies of twisted sickness. There’s nothing more revolting than that. Aside from this, it has been proven repeatedly that those who have horrid intents with animals, get bored with them soon enough, ultimately leading them to bigger prey, moving up to people, in order to re-ignite and enhance the excitement that the torturing of animals used to provide. It’s simply never enough. And do not forget, these horrendous monsters also end up raising their children in “the game”, breeding evil, little sickos to continue on “the trade”… no doubt causing abuse in every level of their lives, as well. It’s just a revolting cycle that will never end until someone gets into it and breaks the heart-wrenching pattern. So, even if an animal is not of your utmost concern, then note that it will not stop there. It is just a start. And it is just a matter of time.

  13. Daniela Bress says:

    For heaven’s sake, it’s time to get rid of our human trash, WORLDWIDE!
    Give all those lower creatures the same treatment their victims had to endure – I’m so tired of this megalomaniac, greedy, ignorant and perverted human society!

  14. Jean Ellingen says:

    It is so wrong and heartless to kill defenseless animals in such a cruel way.

  15. Sara Russell says:

    Dear Mayor Pak Fetrat,

    Could the dogs of your city not be employed in some way instead of being slaughtered by such a cruel method as acid injection?

    Dogs are intelligent. They can be trained to sniff out illegal drugs, guard property, be eyes of a blind person and many other very useful things. They can herd sheep. They can help the police in their work. The strays of your city could be quarantined for rabies, then trained to work for the community. With your current policy of cruel extermination, you are not only committing an atrocity against animals, you are wasting intelligent lives – lives which have souls, as people do. Please have mercy on these street dogs and give them another chance.
