KKU controls dog and cat population, sterilizes, and vaccinates them

Public Utility, Energy and Environment Management Division keeps controlling population of strayed dogs and cats by sterilizing and vaccinating them to protect people from the spread of diseases

Public Utility, Energy and Environment Management Division, Khon Kaen University, organizes “the Control on Population of Strayed Dogs and Animals Project” that meets the policies of KKU’s and Public Utility, Energy and Environment Management Division’s administration based on strategy number 1 of Khon Kaen University. This strategy aims to promote green areas in the university, and Public Utility, Energy and Environment Management Division aims to create clean and safe areas with green trees by controlling the population of strayed animals and the animal-borne diseases because KKU is a huge community where a lot of staff and students live. It is also the place that many people in the area pass by. At present, it has been found that strayed animals are chronic problems in the university, especially cats and dogs which can be hosts of rabies virus.

Therefore, Public Utility, Energy and Environment Management Division requires cooperation from pet owners in Khon Kaen University to carefully keep their pets at their places so that officers can lure those strayed animals into the cages. The animals will be sent to Faculty of Veterinary Medicine to be sterilized as well as vaccinated, and fleas on dogs will be got rid of, too. Then the staff will put a collar on dogs so that they will not be caught twice and take those dogs to the place where they have been caught after they recover. This process is for reducing risks from rabies that may infect students, staff, and people in the area nearby. In this year, the target is 80 strayed animals. The project has begun since May 1, 2019 and is going to end on September 30, 2019.
