Capital Development Authority (CDA) Chairperson Captain (retd) Muhammad Usman Younis inaugurated the Stray Dogs Population Control Centre in Islamabad on Saturday.
“Islamabad is the only city in the country where such centre has been established,” Younis, who is also serving as Chief Commissioner of the federal capital, said while addressing the inauguration ceremony which was attended by a large number of citizens, CDA officers and representatives from the civil society and NGOs.
The CDA chairperson informed the participants of the gathering that with the capacity to house over 500 canines, ample space has been allocated for play area, rest area, surgical unit, vaccination centre and laboratory.
“Complaints of stray dog bites were being received from different areas of Islamabad, especially from rural areas, but they were not getting resolved due to the absence of an effective solution. However, due to the special interest of the current CDA administration, this centre has been established,” he said.
