Guam - Doggone tired of the out of control stray canine population, some mayors are taking matters into their own hands. At today's monthly meet, Dededo mayor Melissa Savares provided insight on her experiences with contracting A.S.A.P. Animal Control, which charges $30 per dog captured. Once caught, dogs are taken to gain where they are spayed and neutered.
Savares says the company is successful with catching dogs, but are often confronted by pet owners. Savares reminds residents that Guam law states pets need to be restrained to your private property.
Personal dogs taken to gain must be retrieved by the pet owner and may be subject to adoption or retrieval fees and must also get the animal licensed.
