'Dingo Team' NGO has made a proposal to the Armenian Government on solving the problem with stray dogs. 'Two types of works shall be carried out, first, to supervise household breeding so as not to allow everybody to breed animals whenever they want and second, to carry out mass sterilization. We have proposed the government to invite a more experienced foreign company: we have an experience of working with the World Association of Animal Breeders, who twice visited Armenia and carried out a certain amount of sterilization,' said Ovsanna Hovsepyan, Co-Founder of 'Dingo Team' NGO.

'Unigraph X' Company used to have a monopolistic position in sterilization and sleeping of stray dogs for 10 years. In the spring of 2018, a criminal case was initiated against the company, as an embezzlement of 185 million AMD had been detected in this company.

Yerevan Municipality is going to announce a new call for the selection of the company dealing with the sterilization of stray dogs, where requirements complying to the international standards will be posed.
