PREFACE
The bond between man and dog had its beginning 12-14 millennia ago somewhere in Eurasia where a reciprocal relationship between them first emerged. Provided with scraps of food when approaching the early encampments and settlements of man, the wolf soon became a frequent and welcome visitor, warning man of imminent danger and later assisting him in the hunt for wild animals. Thus began the domestication of the dog and the establishment of a bond between man and animals that has no equal.
Today, man violates that bond by allowing dogs to breed excessively and then abandoning them in great numbers, thus creating hazards for the dogs themselves as well as a considerable health risk to human society. All too often, authorities confronted with the problems caused by these dogs have turned to mass destruction in the hope of finding a quick solution, only to discover that the destruction had to continue, year after year, with no end in sight. Moreover, by reducing temporarily the population of straying dogs, the authorities had improved the chances of survival of the remainder and provided fresh opportunities for newly-abandoned dogs. It is now becoming recognised that removal of surplus dogs cannot solve the problem unless combined with other measures such as registration and neutering of dogs and education of the public.
The World Health Organisation and the World Society for the Protection of Animals have sought to provide those responsible for dog population management with practical, effective and humane solutions, by assembling an international working group of distinguished scientists, animal control professionals and animal protection leaders to assess the problems caused by this surplus of dogs and provide recommended actions for dealing with them. We are pleased to present their findings and recommendations in this publication, a sequel to the WHO publication VPH/83.43 "Guidelines for Dog Rabies Control", and are confident they will serve to improve the proper management of dog populations, and thus to contribute to an improvement of the age-old bond between man and dog.
