Our goal is to reduce the population of stray animals in a most human way. That is why we implement the CNR program that entails catching stray and lost animals, spaying/neutering, vaccination, treatment for endoparasite and ectoparasite and marking the animal that has been through the CNR program. After their recovery animals are returned in the areas that they have been captured in the first place.
This way, the dogs that have been through this program are protecting their territory from new dogs, and the population will be stabilized and in time, reduced due to old age of dogs.
The dogs do not go to the locations like preschools, schools, schoolyard and hospitals. They have microchips and have collars for the purpose of visual identification. Their behavior is monitored on a regular basis, as well as their health.
This program has given great results in many European countries and that is why we expect that will reduce population of stray dogs also in our town and give us similar results.
In order to successfully solve the problem of stray dogs in our town, beside the CNR program, together we need to spread the awareness that we cannot abandon our pets on the streets of our town, or anywhere else, because in this way we are directly contributing on increasing the population of stray dogs.
