“Every local office must conduct a survey to find the true number of street dogs in their area and make a plan to tackle the issue together with the Phuket Provincial Livestock.

“Officials will be sent out to catch these street dogs, and once captured they will be taken to the Phuket Stray Dog Shelter.

“We understand that the situation at the dog shelter is not good and therefore we will seek a budget from the government and private sector to develop the shelter and improve its facilities,” V/Gov Snith added.
