Now A Helpline Number For Helping Strays In Chandigarh [News]

15 Jul 2014 | by Neha Manchanda | Posted in: Wag News

Chandigarh, one of the best planned cities in terms of architecture and modern living,  is also an epitome of progressing towards modernization while conserving the natural beauty of the city in India.

While the city boasts of its natural beauty and modernized outlook, its residents are faced with the issue of handling stray dogs, especially ferocious dogs. In order to restore peace amongst the residents, Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has launched a toll - free helpline number where residents can call in and register complaints against stray dogs or ferocious dogs in their locality.

Residents may call in at the toll free number 155304 and register their complaint. The call will be received by the call centers (weekdays: 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM; weekends: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) who will then allocate the complaints to the respective area superintendents.

The toll free number hopes to reduce the number of complaints rising everyday due to ferocious dogs and increase in the number of stray dogs. Residents can register their complaint on the toll free number which will be registered and an acknowledgement message will be sent to the resident to their registered mobile number along with the complaint number in case a follow up of the same is required.

Toll free numbers for registering complaints against stray dogs and ferocious dogs  are also available in cities such as Ahmedabad (Call center - 079 - 253 91811), Kolkata (Canine Control Room, Call center - 033-222-69909; Toll free - 1800 345 3375), Nashik (a collaboration between an NGO and Nashik Municipal Corporation) and Jaipur (Call center - 0141 - 5110111; Toll Free:1800180 - 6681). The municipal corporation bodies in these cities aim at controlling the stray ferocious dogs plus controlling the population of stray dogs through spay and neuter drives.
