Training programme

Neutering of owned dogs will be key to reducing the levels of roaming dogs in Sarajevo and across Bosnia. Our research has shown that many people understand that dogs need to be neutered, but do not have access to affordable and safe neutering in their area. We will work with the Veterinary Faculty of the University of Sarajevo to offer training in this area for vets across Bosnia and Herzegovina, so neutering can be made available and affordable throughout the country. Courses are run in January , March, September and November every year and are open to practicing veterinarians anywhere, but we will give priority to people those people already engaged in projects to promote animal welfare. If you would like more information on the course or would like to apply for place please  contact us. Find the form for application bellow.
