中文摘要

The purpose of this survey was to determine the ordinary people’s understanding of stray dog problems. The study was made from February 1, 2003 to February 21, 2004. A total of 1200 questionnaires were distributed and 1120 were useable. The questionnaire included two parts. The first part was to study the understanding of stray dogs and animal protection laws by public. The second part was to study the understanding of shelters by the public. The survey showed the following results. Small sized of dogs, which weight less than 9 kg are preferred by 48.7% people. A high percentage (76.3%) of people agree that dogs should be neutered or spayed before adoption. Over half the people (65.4%) adopt dogs because of their appearance. The opinion of family members was considered by 48.8% of people when adopting a dog. Euthanasia is considered necessary by 62.4% of people. A very high percentage of people (94.6%) believe stray dogs can be trained to become good dogs. Many people (87.8%) believe an injected chip for each stray dog is necessary. Many people (94.7%) believe that people who give away dogs on purpose should be punished. People (81.9%) believe that dogs should be protected by law. If the dogs are injured or are ill then may people prefer to cure them. People still not quite understand the center of shelter (44.7 vs 55.3). People believe the shelter should promote the adoption of dogs. Only 52.9% people are willing to become a volunteer. People want the shelter to provide various training courses for them.
