Fewer Dogs Means Fewer Bites, Spay and Neuter for Everyone's Safety!
IF YOU SEE A PACK OF ROAMING DOGS:
Avoid eye contact
DO NOT RUN
Keep your hands down at your side
Stand with the side of your body facing the dog (never turn your back)
Once the dog loses interest, slowly back away until they are out of sight
IF YOU ARE BEING ATTACKED:
Put anything (your purse, bag or jacket) you have to put between you and the dog to protect yourself.
If you are knocked down, curl into a ball with your head tucked in and your hands over your ears and neck. Do not move and be silent.
When you get to a safe place, immediately wash any wounds with soap and water. Seek medical attention, especially:If the wound is serious. [Uncontrolled bleeding, loss of function, extreme pain, muscle or bone exposure…etc]
If the wound becomes red, painful, warm or swollen, or if you develop a fever.
If it has been more than 5 years since your last tetanus shot and the bite is deep.
