ABC-AR has emerged as the most logical mean of managing street dog populations and curbing the spread of rabies. Despite its success, few municipalities in India are aware of the potential to manage street dog populations more humanely and effectively. A successful ABC-AR program requires adequate funding and investment in the training of veterinary personnel.
