What does Carodog stand for?
Message of the project
If every dog can be identified and has a visible, responsible and well informed owner, there will no longer be any unwanted dogs, the existence of stray animals will cease, and with it their suffering resulting from illegal dog breeding and trade, and problems of dog aggression.
The CAROdog Website is a concrete attempt to provide, generate and disseminate reliable knowledge about dogs in Europe, focusing on canine overpopulation and - in consequences - on all resulting animal welfare problems.
The provision of an innovative contribution to a systematic approach to canine population management is the main purpose of this site, starting from responsible ownership as basis of individual and community commitment to dog welfare.
This website offers scientific, legal and practical tools for political strategies and concrete projects and programs to build up an European wide culture of responsible dog ownership.
EU Commissioner John Dalli stated that the Second Animal welfare Action Plan (2011-2015) will have a scope including all species and he mentioned expressively the companion animals. Therefore we are glad to support also this new Animal Welfare Policy of the EU Commission by this knowledge management tool on dogs.
