The Chandigarh Municipal Corporation has joined hands with a Panchkula based Pet ANimal Health Society to sterilise stray dogs in the city and curb the stray dog menace.
The Municipal Corporation has signed a pact with the Society where the Corporation pays INR 775 to the society per dog for the operation and vaccinations. The Corporation workers send five dogs per day to the Pet Animal Health Society where the stray dogs are sterilized and vaccinated. Post the surgery, the dogs stay at the society for 5 - 7 days for recovery and then returned to the Municipal Corporation. ( Read more about
