Jordan is a country which like many across the globe suffers from over population and the consequential stray dog issue. As long back as 1990 the World Health Organisation and the WSPA released a report that stated the most effective method is combination of:
We urge His Majesty to invest time and resources with the assistance of Jordan's animal welfare organisations to implement sustainable humane management of the canine population, via a sustained vaccination and neutering policy. Let Jordan be an example of Islam's humanity.
