I understand that it are private institutions like Soi Dog Foundation ( running on donations) doing dog sterilizations. The Health Dept of Phuket not take the responsibility for that, it remains silent as a mouse. 'Saving' their budget for such a population health care program they not do. What Provincial Hall does with that money? Where it goes?

Why cannot this be done with the stray dogs of PSU campus?
