Bahrain Stray Dogs Initiative Launched

Magazine
In an effort to humanely address the problem of stray dogs in the country, the Bahrain Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (BSPCA) launched a Catch, Neuter, Return (CNR) program in conjunction with the London-based Dogs Trust International. The five-year campaign is expected to cost $795,000.

Starting this week, the BSPCA will conduct surveys aimed at obtaining an accurate count of stray dogs in the country. The survey will be delivered door to door and will also be available online.

The CNR project is designed to humanely stop stray dogs from breeding, so as to minimize the number of dogs being shot by police or hit by cars on the streets. The dogs will receive a health checkup, vaccinations, and be anesthetized before they are castrated. Then they will be released back to the wild to carry on their normal lives, but without being able to reproduce.

  1. I live in the Sar area. Banan Sar. Road 2717, Block 0527.

    A area of new villas called 35 villas.

    We have had a many stray dogs since I moved in February. Then a month later a litter of 5 puppies. I then went to UK and on my return last week the puppies have obviously grown and moved to outside my door. They are about 7 in the pack I encounter all white. They must be several months old now and will start breeding. They are a bit scary now when you walk at night or walk your dogs. I am sure there is another pack but cannot see them.
    What can i do to help? m. 39304718
