Karimnagar Municipal Corporation to set up animal care center as stray dog complaints rise – The New Indian Express
KARIMNAGAR: The Municipal Corporation of Karimnagar (MCK) has started implementing plans to set up an animal care center that would house the stray dogs that have become a problem in the town. District Collector RV Karnan said land between the Housing Board settlement and Bommakal on the outskirts of Karimnagar town has been allocated for this purpose.
Such a center has become a necessity in the wake of stray dogs proliferating in the city. The MCK receives representations from each division for the capture of stray dogs. Taking the situation seriously, the MCK decided to speed up the establishment of the Animal Care Center. Mayor of Karimnagar, Y Sunil Rao, also said that this is a long-standing request, and in fact, it has been discussed many times in council meetings.
MCK’s Engineering and Veterinary Wing has begun clearing the one acre land allocated to the Shrub Center. The plan is to catch stray animals, move them to the center where they would be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies. Stating that the Animal Care Center will be ready in six months, Sunil Rao called on people to cooperate with the civic body.
