The overpopulation of pets, particularly dogs and cats, is a problem that affects, to a greater or lesser extent, most countries, offering risks to human health and public safety, animal health and the environment. Several proposals and techniques have been developed to control animal populations, and effective actions must be implemented together with education in responsible guarding, castration campaigns, combating abandonment and conducting adoption campaigns. It is necessary to discipline the environmental protection related to animals, through a set of municipal policies for the defense and protection of animals, according to the species, with a clear conceptualization based on technical and scientific guidance and in line with the federal legal and normative framework. and state. The study in question has total practical applicability since it seeks to understand the phenomenon related to the existing legal structure, allowing to provide managers in public policies involved with the theme with tools for decision making and performance. The objective of this exploratory study was to analyze and propose interventions in public management, in the Municipality of Catalão-GO, regarding the population control of dogs and cats. The result of this research was the elaboration of four articles that dealt with an integrative review of publications on dog population control, analysis of the population control of dogs and cats as public policy and its aspects of innovation, elaboration of a Program for the Control of Dogs and Cats for the Municipality of Catalão and proposal for a Health and Environmental Education Program on Population Control of Dogs and Cats. The guarding of dogs and cats is influenced by cultural factors, and the high population density of these species requires the adoption of official strategies that aim to minimize environmental and health impacts and that must be promoted in the form of public policies and actions of permanent health education and environmental. Castration campaigns can potentially reduce population density. It was found that there is a lack of standardization in the terms involved that guide the process of conducting research. Further studies are recommended to identify parameters as indicators of the effectiveness of the application of laws and the respective actions that involve the population control of dogs and cats.
