General principles

  • Promotion of responsible ownership

  • In some situations, to protect human health it is unavoidable to kill free-ranging dogs. This should be done as humanely as possible.

  • Killing dogs should be accompanied by other control measures and public education in order to achieve long -term objectives.


General principles

  • Sub-national jurisdictions are often responsible for dog control programs.

  • NGO’s play a key role in some countries.

  • Involvement of veterinarians and of official Veterinary Services working in collaboration with public health authorities is needed to realise long term goals.


Next steps
