Operational guidance for dog-control staff

It is increasingly important for government at all levels to deal with stray dogs in a humane manner. The World Health Organisation (WHO), the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and the Council of Europe have all recognised the need for government bodies to control dog populations while avoiding the unnecessary suffering of dogs. This report provides guidance for dog-control staff working on government-funded programmes. It is based on our experience of working with animal-control professionals, particularly in Europe and Asia. This guidance is in line with international standards, including the guidelines on stray dog population control adopted by the OIE in May 2009.
