is advocated by
WHO as the most efficient means of dog population and rabies control.
The female dog once spayed is saved the agony of the cycle of heat, mating, pregnancy and delivery every few months. Besides, small pups are spared the dangers and trauma of being born in crowded uncaring cities and towns.
Neutered male dogs do not indulge in competitive often aggressive mating fights and become calm. They also stop roaming around and stay in their own locations.
Spay/neutered dogs are also immunized before release and hence are healthy
turn there is improved public health in the community. The dogs also provide good security for the area as well.
IDA India is spending $20 or Rs.1500 / per dog to spaying animal in IDA India centre. We are calling contributors to sponsor a dog for the entire Spaying procedure which includes Spay Operation, 7 Days Meals, Shelter and Vaccination. Once they are declared as healthy by our vets, they are sent back to the location they are picked up from.

Spaying Procedure at IDA India
- Two Vans go out on weekdays with two catchers each, every morning. Street dogs are caught from a pre-determined location. The staff catch and bring in 8 to 10 at a time - this is the number that fit comfortably into the Van.
- As soon as they are brought in, they are put
main Holding Room. All new dogs for ABC are put in here each day. The Manager then comes in with his Register and a Staff member who will tie a numbered token on each dog. This is to
area and so on.
- Next day early in the morning, the dogs are prepared for spay and neuter and taken from the holding room straight into the Operating Theatre which has been completely sanitised. (This is done meticulously every day).
- As each dog is operated, it is given an anti-rabies shot and the end of one ear is cauterised while it is still under anaesthesia. This is to show that it has been operated.
- The unconscious dog is then carried carefully to the Recovery Room, where it is placed along with the other operated dogs and left to come back to consciousness. The dogs are checked at this time and monitored by our Vet and the Dressing Staff to see that all is well.
- When they recover, they are taken according to their numbers and localities and
the ABC Kennels. The dogs from one locality will thus be together in the same room.
- Each day all the patients are visited by the Vet and also by the Dressing Team who check the surgical wound and see that it is healing.
- Every day the Cleaning staff come in to make everything as clean as possible as this is vital for good recovery.
- Every day all the dogs are fed two nutritious meals a day by the Feeding team.
- At the end of one week, the dogs are carefully checked and then taken for release in the afternoons by the same two Vans that are used for catching in the morning.
- The dogs are released with care in the same locality from where they were picked up. This is an important part of the exercise as they are highly territorial and cannot be carelessly released in the wrong location.
We have been doing this work for 22 years so have developed a great deal of expertise in this procedure.
