In January 2016, Humane Society International (HSI) conducted a dog population survey of Dhaka City to estimate abundance of roaming dogs in the city, including both North and South City Corporation areas. Abundance is the total population size in a given area. A “roaming dog” is defined to mean any dog that may move freely at times on the city streets or other public areas, such as a “stray”, “community dog” or unconfined owned dog.
