A modern standard shelter for the homeless animals was opened in Kutaisi. The shelter is meant for 300 dogs and for the dozens of cattle. Kutaisi Mayor Shota Murgulia and other local government officials were introduced to the conditions on the ground at the shelter. The issue of so-called street dogs was unresolved during the past years. At the same time the day of the yard-keeper was celebrated. Kutaisi Mayor Shota Murgulia, the vice governor Joseph Khakhaleishvili and the "special services", Director gave some symbolic gifts to the yard-keepers.
