The decision was taken after receiving repeated complaints about the growing number of street dogs in the city. However, the initiative hasn't found many takers in the city.
"Some people have called up regarding the issue of upkeep of these stray dogs, we will have a meeting with them soon", she said.
One of the city residents Vivek Mohan said, "It is very expensive to adopt a dog. The discounts being offered by the corporation are not comparable to it."
Meanwhile, Shimla Municipal Corporation had also undertaken a campaign from 4th to 8th of November, where local residents are required to register the pet dogs with the municipal corporation.
