In April, Warsaw is to begin the first place with doggie in Poland! Vietnamese born in our country wants to open it. this weird idea came when he learned of the liquidation of animal shelters in the county in Celestynow Otwock. Considered that the Polish law forbids the mistreatment of dogs, but not killing them for culinary and consumer goods.

Links to an interview with the Vietnamese can be found on many internet forums of dogs and cats lovers. This meant that was quickly blocked. Today you can read it in accessible in Google copies.
Animal lovers are sounding the alarm. "We can not allow that this barbaric habit debuted in Poland. All foundations to protect the animals will do anything to close the premises, and not even allowed to open" - said on its website ViVA Pulawy.
In a similar vein, says the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Zakopane. The website of the activists point out that "fortunately, so far, and we have not asked any of the Asians with the request for adoption dog or cat. However, we concluded that we should proactively deny the donation of animals to representatives of Asian cultures. "
