Refused request for registration
Title: Our concern for insufficient help to pet and stray animals in the European Union
Date of refusal: 06/11/2013
Language of the request: English

Subject-matter:
The residents, workers and tourists in the EU - shall be able to live and travel in Europe, without fear and without mental and physical discomfort concerning welfare of pet animals.

Main objectives:
We, the citizens of the European Union, URGE the Commission to PROPOSE legislation under the Treaties, to establish a common regulatory framework that harmonizes Member States welfare and protection of pet and stray animals, in order to provide the necessary legal basis for pet animal welfare and protection in Member States - to ensure that nationals in the EU are given: safety, normal conditions and freedom of movement.

Reason for refusal:
The proposed citizens' initiative falls manifestly outside the framework of the Commission's powers to submit a proposal for a legal act of the Union for the purpose of implementing the Treaties.
