The protocol on the continuation of cooperation, which began in 2021, was signed on Wednesday, May 10, 2023 by the Minister of Defense of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Zukan Helez, and Karen Reed, Director of Dogs Trust Worldwide.
In addition to the processing of dogs living in the circles of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the new Agreement also provides for financial support of the Dogs Trust Foundation in improving the accommodation of demining dogs of the Armed Forces of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
