The Process

The ProcessĀ 

Following are the Steps taken during our ABC four-day program: 

The location and population of street dogs are calculated using scientific methods and mobile applications, particularized for dog population surveys. The results of the street dog survey are reviewed and an appropriate solution for catching the dogs is devised.

Day 1 Catching: Professional dog catchers with ambulances catch the dogs with the cooperation of the community. The dogs who are not friendly are professionally caught using nets.

Day 2 Surgery:

  1. Examination: The doctors inspect the dogs to see if they are fit for surgery.
  2. Preparation: If fit for surgery, they are prepared for surgery. The dogs are given anesthetic before being cleaned and sterilized by veterinarian assistants in preparation for surgery. In addition, rabies and DHPPiL vaccinations (prevention for immunization of dogs against canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus, canine parvovirus, and canine parainfluenza virus.) are provided.
  3. Surgery: Veterinarians use the Keyhole Technique to operate on the dogs after they have been prepared. A notch is marked on the left ear of the dogs as a marker spayed or neutered dog. The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes per dog and the dog becomes conscious after about 1.5 hours.

Day 3 Recovery: The dogs are kept in kennels with care and are monitored to see if they require additional treatment or if they may be released the next day.

Day 4 Release: If it is determined that the dogs are fit to be released, they are returned to the community.
