Successful Animal Birth Control, especially amongst stray dogs, is a programme that has gained importance and due visibility across all cities in the country. Not only are the City and Municipal Corporations of different cities concerned with the menace that an uncontrolled growth of stray dogs can cause, they are taking every step to ensure that the programme is implemented and effectively executed across all wards and localities, especially the ones where the number of complaints have been registered by residents about the stray pups and dogs.
Going by the same trend, Corporation of Thiruvananthapuram and Humane Society of India (HSI) have joined hands to resolve the Animal Birth Control issues faced by the city especially in localities where the problem is acute.
In the month of January 2014, the Corporation of Thiruvananthapuram had released an Expression of Interest inviting agencies and Non - Governmental bodies approved by Animal Welfare Board of India to come forward with effective plans of implementation of Animal Birth Control Programme. Humane Society of India , one the largest animal protection societies and with an innovation Street Dog Welfare Initiative , came forward and will start its first phase of census and survey of identifying localities and taking an understanding of the number of stray dogs across corporation wards and identifying or marking them.
The local Veterinary Hospitals of Thiruvallam and Pettah will collaborate with the veterinary surgeons of HSI to carry out the next phase of the initiative, namely to take in the stray dogs in the most humanely possible way and sterilise them. This initiative will also rope in local veterinary surgeons so that the overall project can be carried out in a smooth and successful manner.
If your City Corporation or Municipal Corporation has taken steps or adopted Animal Birth Control Programme, do share your views on the same!
