The online module on 'App 311' for monitoring the stray dog sterilization process was recently launched. In this module, all the processes of dog sterilization right from the pickup of the dog, its arrival at the centre, date of surgery, and release of the dog back in the area from where it was picked up, are updated online with photographs. All the activity related to stray dog sterilization can be monitored by the officials of the department.
An official of the Veterinary Department said that the complete data related to dog sterilization will be available online through the Dog Sterilization module on MCD App 311. He says, "Many times, we receive complaints regarding stray dogs being picked up by our field teams from certain neighbourhoods but not being returned to the same locality after the neutering surgery. MCD will monitor the sterilisation of stray dogs through this mobile application and it will ensure that after surgery, the animals are released in the same locality they were picked up from. This dog sterilization module will be especially helpful in resolving these issues for sure."
