Dogs Trust Representative Office in B&H, through its partner veterinary clinics, supports and coordinates the Neutering Programme, which includes mass neutering of stray dogs and free neutering of owned dogs. The Neutering Programme has been approved by the local authorities in all regions.
Neutering, as one of the most important dog population management methods, stops the reproduction of strays, thus stabilizing their population. In addition, neutering of owned dogs prevents unwanted puppies from being born and abandoned on the streets.
What does the Free Neutering Package include?
- Rabies vaccine which protects both dogs and the community from this dangerous disease;
- Anti-parasite treatment which protects dogs from intestinal parasites, some of which may be zoonotic (transferred from dogs to humans), and
- Microchip, for stray dogs an ear-tag and tattoo as well – Establishing a Dog Register is very important for solving the stray dog problem permanently, as sanctioning of irresponsible ownership treats the very cause of the problem.
