The Indian Veterinary Association, Kerala (IVA, Kerala) conducted a one day State Level work shop at Kottayam, on formulation of uniform projects for Artificial Birth Control (ABC)of street dogs. The Guest faculty included Dr.Deepu Philip Mathew, Member of the IVA Expert Panel on ABC, Dr.Kishore, Team Leader of the ABC Kochi, run by the Kochi Corporation and Dr.Jobi George of Pariyarom ABC Centre. The stray dog population management in India underwent a drastic change as ABC (Dogs) Rules 2001 came into force. The indiscriminate wiping out of the stock by inhuman methods came to an abrupt end. As per the rules the onus is on the local LSG institution to ensure implementation of Artificial Birth Control in Street dogs by doing ABC surgery based on the protocol of Animal Welfare Board of India(AWBI).The LSGs also have to ensure animal welfare by setting up animal shelters for orphan animals. The main stake holders in the implementation of the Dog Rules, are the local LSG, and an NGO recognized by the AWBI. Since there was no active implementation of these rules in Kerala during the last fifteen years, there was a street dog population explosion and it is perceived as direct indicator of the massive street garbage. The real ground level data shows that many of the LSGs cannot afford to set up the operation theatres and such infrastructure stipulated by the AWBI and hence they confined their activity by spending some thousands of rupees as yearly plan fund to conduct vaccination and awareness camps. Laterally, protocols for management of street garbage were yet to take shape and it was in these circumstances that the Kottayam District decided to intervene to cut the vicious circle. For the first time in Kerala, an ABC project funded by the three tier Panchayaths and implemented by the District Panchayath in cooperation with the Animal Husbandry Department, was mooted at the behest of the District Collector of Kottayam, Sri.U.V.Jose.The novel project, rightly named ‘GOOD MORNING KOTTAYAM’ and with an outlay of about 2.04 crores, got the assent of the State Government in July 2015. Infrastructure ,as per AWBI protocols were set up in four Veterinary Institutions.A Non Governmental Organization, Friends of Animals Kottayam ,gave institutional training for twenty five unemployed youth as Dog catchers,para veterinary staff and caretakers .Ten veterinary doctors proficient in this surgery protocol were recruited and with these 35 contract staff the programme was launched on 01.12.2015 at Veterinary Poly Clinics at Kanjirappaly ,Pariyarom ,Vaikom and Veterinary Hospital Vazhoor. This project was lauded by the policy makers as Kottayam Model that could be replicated to other Districts as well. But the various lacunae and serious implementation hiccups have prompted The Indian Veterinary Association, Kerala to sit and analyze the project on a state canvass through this work shop. The organization proposes to submit a revised project to the Government based on these experiences and to request uniform implementation of ABC in all Districts based on AWBI protocols. The programme was felicitated by Dr.C.Sreekumar, General Secretary, Kerala Government Veterinary Officers Association and Dr.P.Saseendran Nair, Registrar, Kerala State Veterinary Council.
