BCC public relations officer, Modou Lamin Bah explained the rationale behind the move, saying the council and partners decided to come with this idea to help the habitants of Banjul in vaccinating their stray dogs and cats so as to minimise the risks associated with rabies.

“We have seen a rise in stray dogs and cats in the streets of Banjul. We want to ensure that stray cats and dogs we have in our homes are safe and clean,” he added.
