Thursday, December 11, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: The Belize City Council routinely does eradication of pest and stray dogs in the Old Capital and another such sweep began on Wednesday and continues today, Thursday.
But it was not announced and the Belize Humane Society contacted the press this afternoon to issue a warning to owners to keep their pets confined.
The full statement by S. Renee Wentz says: “The Belize Humane Society would like to alert all Belize City residents of the following: The Belize City Council has enacted a two night stray dog eradication in Belize City. It began last night, Wednesday and will continue tonight, Thursday. Please confine your pets safely. The Belize Humane Society encourages residents to share this information, but also share the message that all pet owners should keep their pets safely confined at ALL times. People should also spay/neuter their pets in order to decrease escape behavior of dogs and cats leaving the yard to breed. You can contact the Belize Humane Society and Animal Shelter on their Facebook page for more information.”
The Society says it received queries today about several poisoned dogs and so decided to make this announcement.
