Stray animal welfare

For the past 20 years, Naturewatch Foundation has been actively developing projects in Ukraine, working with municipalities to implement humane and sustainable stray dog population management schemes, following the recommendations of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OiE).
Our aims are:

•    To reduce stray dog populations humanely and sustainably.
•    To provide training seminars and practical workshops to educate both national and local governments on how to humanely and sustainably manage stray dog populations.
•    To raise animal welfare standards in municipal shelters.
•    To promote the adoption of stray dogs.
•    To promote the benefits of pet sterilisation and responsible pet ownership.


We are currently working with the Lutsk Municipality, both improving welfare standards at the Municipal Animal Shelter (Laska) through training and the provision of vital equipment and medicines, and addressing the source of the stray dog problem through education.

We are also assisting NGOs who are working tirelessly to reduce the number of stray dogs on Kharkov’s streets by funding a sterilisation programme for dogs owned by people on a low income and community dogs. 

We are also incredibly proud of our education programme that is set to contribute enormously to solving the stray animal problem for the long term.  

Our commitment to Ukraine’s animals continues through the terrible political crisis.  We hold our promise to stand by the animals even in the most difficult times. Through our work there is always room for hope!
