RESOURCES FOR MAPPING
Use these tools to create and maintain records of your community dogs and their caregivers
Dog MAPPING & PHOTOS FOR YOUR RECORDS
Walk around your colony – or ask some youth to do so. Open Google Maps (or take a printed hard-copy of your area) and save with pins on the map as “starred place” each location where one of your community dogs usually hangs out. Print the starred map, count the dogs and give the stars a number that corresponds with your dog records. While walking around your colony identifying your community dogs, click clear photos of them, to add to your records later.
CREATE & MAINTAIN COMMUNITY DOG RECORDS
Your records of community dogs and their caregivers are the basis for other activities. They come in handy to keep track of which dogs still need to be sterilised or to find out about due dates of vaccinations etc. It will also help to proof that your colony is puppy-free and/or rabies free. Download a template in which you can simply add your own details. Or contact us to create a Stray Buddy account for your colony (for free) and manage your dog records collectively on our website.
