The solution

Guideline for Dog Population Management, W.H.O. Geneva 1990

“Removal or killing of dogs should never be considered as the most effective way of dealing with a problem of surplus of dogs in a community: it has no effect whatsoever on the root cause of the problem.

In the long term the control of reproduction isby far the most effective strategy o\f Dog Population Management.”

There are many organisations re-homing Turkish stray dogs to other countries, mostly to The Netherlands and Germany. And for the dogs lucky enough to be re-homed, this is of course a good solution.

For other dogs, a solution would be to realise and expand proper shelters in Turkey itself.

But the one and only structural and humane solution is the Neuter and Release priciple. (The S.H.K.D. has calculated that, if strictly acted according to their plans, the stray dog problem could be under control in 3 years time).


That’s why:

financing and organizing spay and neuter campaigns is one of the main goals of ActieZwerfhonden;

the foundation wants to use the website bring to the attention the spay and neuter campaigns and tries to battle the prejudice concerning (stray) dogs.
