Lagoa’s municipal kennels are to undergo a major makeover to bring them into line with the law, coming into effect next year, outlawing the culling of cats and dogs.

The idea is to turn the kennels into an “Official Centre for the Capture of Stray Animals” (Centro Oficial de Recolha de Animais Errantes).

Part of the revamp will be the construction of a “special room for neutering”, says the council.

This is vital as the only animals to be put down post-2018 will be those deemed to be “suffering”. Sterilisation is therefore seen as the key to keeping numbers under control.

The revamped kennels will also welcome a new municipal vet: Luísa Silva.

For an hour each week (9am to 10am on Tuesdays), Luísa Silva will be available for rabies shots and microchip implants.

More information is expected soon.
