The Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Vo­los in Greece’s eastern main­land is to­day launch­ing a cam­paign aimed at con­trol­ing the city’s pop­u­la­tion of stray dogs, by get­ting more pets mi­crochipped. The author­ity has sent let­ters to the chiefs of all of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s con­stituen­cies to be­gin record­ing the city’s pet pop­u­la­tion and com­pel their own­ers to abide by a law re­quir­ing that all pet dogs are fit­ted with a mi­crochip con­tain­ing their data. In the event that an owner can­not af­ford the pro­ce­dure, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity will ar­range for the pet to be col­lected and mi­crochipped by a vet. The Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of Vo­los has been work­ing closely with an­i­mal pro­tec­tion groups for sev­eral years and has al­ready made sig­nif­i­cant progress in con­tain­ing the city’s stray pop­u­la­tion by con­duct­ing reg­u­lar spay­ing and neu­ter­ing cam­paigns.
