San Fernando Mayor Kazim Hosein met with several stakeholders on Wednesday to discuss conditions at the San Fernando Dog Pound. 

The meeting takes place after uproar over the inhumane treatment of dogs at the facility emerged this week. A video was shared on social media showing improper euthanasia practices.

According to a press release the video was approximately four years old and “since its recording the current administration has improved said conditions to ensure that injections are administered by qualified veterinary personnel as humanely as possible.”

Also present at the meeting were San Fernando City Corporation CEO Mr. Indarjit Singh and members of the SFCC Public Health and Engineering Departments, veterinarian and Senator Dr. Kriyaan Singh, Animals Alive President, Ms. Kathryn Cleghorn and other representatives of the NGO and three representatives in Ms. Jowelle De Souza’s stead.

Mayor Hosein has expressed the SFCC’s intention to consult with all veterinarians and animal rights NGOs in the city to ensure that the facility meets the necessary standards.
