"When we were planning the 2018, we could hardly believe that these plan items will be implemented. But as the saying runs: "They didn't know it's impossible, that's why they succeeded," summarizes 2018 Oksana Koshak, the director of Lviv Municipal Enterprise "Lev", which takes care of stray animals. "Dog adoption rate was record-setting last year – 80% of stray dogs, trapped by us on the streets, got their new homes! Our city got its first crematory for civilized procedure of utilization and burial of animals, as well as a brand new strategy for the establishment of 75 dog off-leash areas. Moreover, we have launched the project for the creation of the Dog Blood Bank, an exclusive in Western Ukraine, and thanks to our supporters we have already implemented it for over 50%. And that's just the beginning."
