The main mandate of the National Dog Population Management Program is to reduce the free-roaming dog population to a manageable level in the public places with 95% sterilization coverage and reverse owned and un-owned dogs’ ratio from existing 30:70 to 70:30.

  • Reduce numbers of free-roaming dogs through enhanced animal birth control
  • Promote responsible dog ownership, dog adoption and community animal birth control through community engagement
  • Contribute towards the elimination of dog mediated human rabies
  • Reduce the risk of dog bites and transmission of zoonotic diseases from dogs to humans
  • Prevent harm to the environment and threat to endangered wildlife species
