Pune, 8th November 2021: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) will appoint two organizations to deal with stray dogs on the city streets. They will be paid Rs 1,549 for catching dogs and sterilizing them.

There is an atmosphere of terror as gangs of dogs roam the alleys along the main road and also there have been a number of accidents involving dogs. A demand was made at the recent Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) general body to take care of these dogs.

The corporators had pointed out in the general body meeting that the dog surgery rooms at Mundhwa, Baner and Naidu hospitals of the Municipal Corporation were in a bad condition. The administration had later revealed that the operating rooms would be repaired.

Tenders were issued to set up infrastructure in their own or private space to catch the dogs in their vehicle, perform sterilization operations on them, vaccinate them and release them back to their original place. Six organizations had applied for it.

The work will be given to Animal Welfare Association Navi Mumbai and Jivaraksha Animal Welfare Trust. These two organizations will be given work for 36 months. Rs 1,549 per surgery will be paid for surgery on stray dogs. If the dogs are transported in a municipal vehicle, the amount of surgery will be deducted at the rate of Rs 200 each.
