Abstract . The article is devoted to the analysis of the problem of stray animals from the point of view of humanitarian expertise. The problem of helping stray animals is acute in many countries. Russia, as a country with a cold climate, is no exception. The average life span of an animal that has lost its owner does not exceed two years. Enthusiasts try to help animals that have fallen into difficult conditions: they feed them, put them in shelters, treat them, vaccinate them, arrange for overexposure or look for new owners. One of these private shelters is located in Koltsovo. In 2020, the animal rehabilitation base in Koltsovo received a grant from the President. The questions about the sufficiency and effectiveness of measures of state support for animal shelters are considered. On the basis of international experience, significant factors in the regulation of the number of homeless animals are revealed. It is shown that the most effective mechanism for regulating the number of homeless animals is the presence of a legislative framework, the implementation of laws and educational work.
Key words : humanitarian expertize, social problems, legal framework, potential risks from stray animals, volunteering.
