DOGS deemed unsuitable for re-homing options, or other logistical reasons such as lack of shelter space will be euthanised upon capture.

A Government statement said this was the consensus reached when the Ministry of Agriculture met veterinary organisations and stakeholders last week, to determine long-term solutions towards the country’s stray dog issue.

The meeting highlighted the objectives of eight-week stray dog control campaign, where the current approach of increased awareness on stray dogs and its related laws would take precedence.
