HYDERABAD: The veterinary wing of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, apart from implementing stray dog sterilisation programme (ABC/ARV) for controlling the stray dog menace effectively, has started a stray dog adoption programme. It is being implemented with the help of the volunteers of NGOs and resident welfare associations in north and west zones of the city.

The GHMC inaugurated a Stray Dog Adoption Centre in Jeedimetla on Sunday and handed over a stray dog puppy to a woman, Uma Reddy, of Sarva Jeeva Samithi. Various issues concerning the programme were discussed with the volunteers present.

In order to control the stray dog population, their menace and to minimise the incidence of rabies, the municipal corporation is implementing Animal Birth Control-cum-Anti Rabies Vaccination Programme (ABC/ARV) as per the GHMC bye-laws of Control of  Stray Animals (dogs) Rules, 2009 as recommended by the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) and advised by the World Health Organization.

In the only scientific method to control stray dog population, stray dogs are caught and subjected to birth control operation and anti-rabies vaccination, and are released back in the same locality after post-operative care  as per the SOP norms of AWBI.
