1 Options for dog population management: Where do you start? Improving animal welfare in shelters: a practical approach Warsaw, 12 April 2014 Alexandra Hammond-Seaman
2 RSPCA mission The RSPCA will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of all animals
3 Introduction to the RSPCA The RSPCA is the worlds oldest animal welfare organisation is a charity and receives no government funding has 4 science departments for companion, farm and laboratory animals, and wildlife enforces UK animal welfare law through its inspectorate campaigns, lobbies and educates for improved conditions for animals.
4 Introduction to the RSPCA Scale 159,686 cruelty complaints investigated in ,441 convictions secured in ,033 animals collected and rescued in ,086 animals re-homed in ,388 animals microchipped and 79,810 animals neutered in branch-run clinics 51 animal centres
5 Introduction to the RSPCA International Where? East Asia southern Africa Europe Links to organisations What? Support Advice Training courses
6 Developing humane DPM intervention Support initial dog population assessment and community surveys. Work with the key stakeholders to develop targeted and comprehensive intervention measures. Provide advice and technical assistance for the competent authorities and shelter managers. Deliver catching and handling and shelter training for municipal staff, service providers, veterinarians and NGOs. Support awareness raising and education activities.
7 Dog population management Trends in stray dogs in Europe No census or population data was systematically recorded nationally by a central government or agencies responsible for stray dog control. Stray animal control practices (Europe), WSPA and RSPCA report, 2007
8 Dog population management Methods of stray dog control in Europe In those countries that caught strays 10 (32%) euthanized animals at the end of the holding period, 2 (6%) euthanized upon capture, and 3(10%) did not legally permit the euthanasia of healthy dogs. Holding periods varied from 3-60 days. Stray animal control practices (Europe), WSPA and RSPCA report, 2007
9 Legislation overview in Europe - 87% have legislation that covers AW and the protection of animals - 70% of countries prohibit abandonment - 50% restrict selling and breeding of dogs - 42% had national legislation that specifically addresses pet ownership (dog control laws) - 70% compulsory identification and licensing but report little effect due to poor implementation in 48% and little effect on stray dog numbers - In countries where dog identification and registration were rigorously enforced it was considered the most effective element of in successful stray control practices. Stray animal control practices (Europe), WSPA and RSPCA report, 2007
10 State of play in the EU Approx. 197 million companion animals owned by households in the EU. This includes around 64 million pet cats and 60 million pet dogs. No specific legislation at the EU level to protect the companion apart from the pet passports scheme requiring animals travelling with their owners to be permanently identified. However there is no registration system across the EU making traceability difficult. MSs have adopted legislation which varies across the EU. No EU legislation regarding the stray dog control practices.
11 State of play in the EU In 2010, the EU Council decisions calling upon the EU Commission to investigate differences between MSs and develop a harmonised approach across the EU for companion animals. In 2011 the EU Parliament adopted a resolution on dog population management and responsible ownership. The second EU AW strategy proposes a framework animal welfare law to include companion animals. The strategy also requests a study on the welfare of dogs and cats involved in commercial practices. It is anticipated to be published in 2014.
12 Dog population management Related costs in EU MSs France 17 million dogs and cats 1 million puppies sold per year dogs abandoned each year Only 530 shelters for villages = 70 villages per shelter Cost Fondation BB 2 million SPA 27 million UK 14 million dogs and cats 100 rehoming centres abandoned animals Cost to shelters RSPCA 53 Million
13 A community problem All can contribute in providing solutions Develop the stakeholder concept Share responsibilities Municipalities should take lead role
14 Free-ranging dog population pose several problems in terms of human health. zoonoses (rabies,echinococcosis,leishmaniosis) environmental pollution (e.g. noise, faeces) nuisance behaviour (noise, chasing vehicles) traffic accidents attack and injury to people
15 .. and animal welfare lack of protection from adverse environmental factors insufficient feed resources lack of veterinary care lack or deficient or inadequate zoonoses control programs invasion of environmental preserve areas damage and threaten to farm animals and wildlife
16 OIE stray dog control guidelines Owned dog: means a dog with a person that claims responsibility. Stray dog: means any dog not under direct control by a person or not prevented from roaming. Types of stray dog: 1. free-roaming owned dog not under direct control or restriction at a particular time; 2. free-roaming dog with no owner; 3. feral dog: domestic dog that has reverted to the wild state and is no longer directly dependent upon humans for successful reproduction.
17 OIE stray dog control guiding principles-2009 Critical importance of promotion of responsible dog ownership Recognises that dog ecology is closely linked to human behaviour Promotes humane stray control practices Need to change human behaviour to be successful in stray dog population management programs
18 Dog population management Art. 2 Dog population control programme objectives Improve dog health and welfare Reduce the numbers of stray dogs to an acceptable level Reduce the risk of zoonosis and parasitic infections Protect the environment Prevent illegal trade and trafficking
19 Dog population management Art.4 Considerations in planning a programme Identify the sources of stray dogs Estimating the existing number, distribution and ecology Set up specific legislation Resources (are not unlimited..!!)
20 Dog population management Art.5 Control measures Education and legislation for responsible ownership Dog I & R Birth control Removal, handling and management of free-roaming dogs (housing standards, community dogs, adoption policy) Environmental controls Dog movement control (national, international) Regulation of commercial dog dealers Reduction in dog bite incidence (education,responsible ownership) Euthanasia

27 ICAM, 2007 Dog population management One size does not fit all
28 Where are the dogs coming from? - the make-up of the roaming dog population - the source(s) of the roaming dogs Owned roaming Abandoned Lost community dog stray born on street
29 What do we need to know (basics): Dogs Public Attitude (What people think, what people want) Human Behaviour (What people do) Number of dogs on the street Dynamics of the stray population (owned vs stray, welfare, sex, age, females lactating/pregnant, puppies) Resource access: what keeps the dogs alive and reproducing Size of owned dog population Public attitudes toward strays? Toward their own dogs? Public awareness of connection between stray and owned ( stray might be owned roaming, but creating puppies) Public awareness and attitudes toward principles of responsible pet ownership (vaccination, sterilisation, controlled reproduction) What are people s concerns? Rabies? Bites? Barking? Do people want dogs on the street? vs. Do people want dogs killed? Will people tolerate community dogs if safe/healthy, not aggressive and sterilised? Why do people own dogs? How do they treat their owned dogs? Training? Do people let their dogs roam? Abandon? What do they do with unwanted puppies when their dog gets pregnant? What are most common issues that people cannot cope with (causing abandonment)? Disease, behaviour, money, etc.
30 Dog population management Initial assessment Management strategies should aim to target the source of the problem and not only treat the symptoms - What is the current size of the population and what are the characteristics of the specific dog population. - Where are the dogs coming from? Where are these sources? - What are the problems perceived and what is currently done to control these problems? - Who is responsible for this control? - Who are the relevant stakeholders? - What is the prevailing public opinion/attitudes to this issues? What people think/what people do?
31 RELEVANT FACTORS FOR ANALYSIS: Why does this problem exist? Human attitudes/behaviour Owned animals Unowned animals Abandoned animals Environmental factors Community resources and stakeholder actions
32 INFLUENTIAL FACTORS Human behaviour Reproduction Access to resources Zoonoses Public and dog welfare
