Srinagar, Nov 10 : Prominent Socio,Political Activist And Sr Trade Union Leader Mohammad Altaf Dar in a statement issued to press here express concern & draw attention to a pressing social issue that affects our beloved srinagar city & it’s extended areas,due to the presence of street dogs.
The increasing population of street dogs poses several challenges to our communities. Firstly, it raises concerns about public health and safety. These dogs may carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans, posing a risk to our well-being. Additionally, incidents of dog bites and attacks have been reported, causing harm and fear among citizens.
Furthermore, the welfare of these street dogs is an ethical concern. Many of them suffer from malnutrition and injuries and lack access to proper veterinary care. It is our responsibility as a society to ensure their well-being and treat them with compassion.
To address this issue, a multi-faceted approach is necessary. First and foremost, we need to promote responsible pet ownership. Encouraging individuals to spay or neuter their pets can help control the population of stray dogs. Additionally, implementing vaccination programmes can prevent the spread of diseases.
Moreover, collaboration between local authorities, animal welfare organisations,communities & Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) is crucial. Establishing shelters and adoption programmes can provide a safe haven for street dogs, while educational campaigns can raise awareness about their needs and encourage empathy towards them.
In conclusion, it is imperative that we take immediate action to address the issue of street dogs in Srinagar City & it’s extended areas. By implementing responsible pet ownership practices, promoting welfare initiatives, and fostering a culture of compassion, we can create a safer and more harmonious environment for both humans and animals.
Prominent Socio,Political Activist And Sr Trade Union Leader Mohammad Altaf Dar(Rajbagh) hope that we can ignite a meaningful dialogue and inspire positive change.
