Street dogs in Palestine have, for many years, been targeted by lethal control; causing pain, suffering and death to these innocent animals. Lateef can be sure that he will not suffer the same fate as he became the very first dog to be castrated and vaccinated as part of PAL’s TNVR scheme. From now on, only humane population control will be used in the Palestinian city of Tulkarm. Here were chart Lateef’s story.
In February 2015, PAL, in conjunction with Al Najah University, launched Palestine’s first locally-run spay and neuter (TNVR) programme for street dogs. Named “Lateef” (which means “Gentle” in Arabic) by our team, our first patient did incredibly well. 240 dogs will be neutered and vaccinated as part of this pilot programme, which was generously funded by Dogs Trust. Find out more about the scheme here.
