...and then everyone gets kicked out of the room and the door gets slammed shut and locked.
I'm sure that was said in jest...but just in case it wasn't, thread locked.

I will try to clarify a few things the best way I can. I see the stray dogs as a problem and it will not disappear in the near future, laws are not enforced, no one really cares that's the reality. I see a lot of hate against these stray dogs, what about the people who create the problem? The stray dogs who live around my place are not mine and I'm not responsible for them. My gf feed them the normal number of dogs is between 4-8 dogs. We vaccinate them and neuter them if possible,(the goal is no rabies and no growing population) sometimes it's free, sometimes I pay. Obliged Friend asks for their vaccinations records, I don't own you anything lol, but the way it works is here, we go to the barangay vet with the animals and the get rabies shot for free, no name for the dogs no record but you can donate if you feel for it. We get the dogs and sometimes cats neutered at the vet upstairs public market in Dumaguete. I bring and pick up my gf and other locals who go there with their animals, that's my part of it, of course, I'm curious and want to see what's going on up there, a lot of people, some come with the bus so far away as Bayawan with dogs and cats, most in cages. I like seeing people who care and come there to get their animals vaccinated and neutered.
It's first now when this topic came up in this forum I start thinking deeper about it. It has not been a big deal to feed, vaccinate and neuter these dogs and a few cats. I find it very natural to support my gf in this. I don't hear any solution to the problem other than shooting or poison the dogs witch are illegal. It's not the dogs who are the problem but the humans who create the problem and it will not be solved by shooting or poisoning, only if people change behavior

A person who is exposed and has never been vaccinated against rabies should get 4 doses of rabies vaccine - one dose right away, and additional doses on the 3rd, 7th, and 14th days. They should also get another shot called Rabies Immune Globulin at the same time as the first dose.
Plus a tetanus shot.
Never take anyones word that stray dogs have been totally vaccinated

Not all dogs are rabid. Rabies is a disease and not all dogs that you see on the road have it. Poisoning them or starving them are both criminal. Dogs actually help us in many ways. They could be good guards against thieves, killers, or what-have-you that try to break into your houses. They are good company, too. They can be fiercely loyal to their owners and will do everything to protect their humans. They are like human beings who have feelings. They know how to love, they get hurt, hungry, and if given the option, they would like to live a longer and happier life.
I am against any sort of cruelty to any animal. No to poisoning. No to starving. Feed them, have them spayed or neutered, and keep them safe in your own fenced yard.
