Dog pound to have December grand opening

PHUKET: Sunart Wongchawalit, Chief of the Phuket Provincial Livestock Office, has told the Gazette that, rather than closing down the controversial Mid Road Dog Shelter in Thalang, it is to have a grand opening in December.

At a meeting on August 31, Governor Udomsak Uswarangkura stated that a decision would be reached by the end of September whether or not to shut the controversial Mid Road Dog Shelter.

K. Sunart said, “We need to get rid of this problem and make strays less annoying to tourists, so this pound will continue operations and we will set the date for a grand opening in December.”

“The pound has facilities for 400 dogs but we still have to face the problem of how to feed them,” he added.
