Puppies wait for adoption at Prawet shelter of the BMA.

 

BANGKOK: -- The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is urging the public to visit its two shelters for street dogs and consider adopting them as the city has to pay about Bt15 million every year to feed them.


The plea was made by Thaweesak Lertpraphan, deputy BMA governor, who said the BMA is caring for 5,500 dogs at its shelter in Uthai Thani and 800 more at its Prawet shelter.

 

Thaweesak said so far only 70 to 100 dogs have been adopted from the shelters. He added that they have been tamed and taught basic tricks so they could be adopted by families.

 

He said food for the dogs costs about Bt8 per dog a day for a total of about Bt15 million a year.

 

He said there are an estimated 100,000 street dogs in the capital and the BMA has received about 4,000 complaints from 2005 until now.

 

Once a complaint is made, BMA officials capture the dogs and take them to the Prawet shelter for temporary quarantine before they were moved to the Uthai Thani shelter.

Well stop feeding them..if they haven't been claimed by old owner or new owner after 2 months then give an injection to put them to sleep

no need to add more to the 100,000 roaming around the Capital city causing accidents ,nuisance and spreading disease  rabies !!!!

Just make sure they are all neutered and that would alleviate a lot of the problems.

Are the adopted dogs rendered non reproductive ?  Ours was they day we found him and good thing too as he got out all the time.  We wanted to adopt a Thai stray in Thailand, but never felt like we could live here for the long term.

Sterilization is key to solving the problem.

Euthanasia is the only soulution to get rid of the millions of free roaming dogs and clear up this unholy mess of mangy, rabbies carying beasts.

This problem is a blight on the good landscape of Thailand.

A dog here and there, wont worry anybody if they are looked after, but these big packs etc of ownerless dogs, should meet an expidited sniff of gas, then zoom off to the next life.
