Ever since word of the Sochi stray dog cull spread around the world, animal activists have been up in arms.
Thankfully, a Russian billionaire is doing what he can to set up shelters and help more strays be saved from certain death.
Oh and he gave locals a bad ass dog rescue golf cart!
So, if you're visiting Sochi for the games and you have a heart… adopt a freakin' dog!!
There are shelters set up in the mountains outside the city, and now in the city, with dozens and dozens of dogs waiting to be rescued.
Thankfully, the Humane Society International (HSI) has some tips! They recommend checking with the Centers for Disease Control to make sure your new pup gets the right shots.
Then, consult with a local Russian vet. After that, contact the airline you'll be flying home on to work out how you can safely travel with your new best friend back home!
The HSI has a whole bunch of great resources (HERE) for shelters to adopt from, airline policies on pets and even local Russian vets to take your new pup to!
So… are you in Sochi?? Then what are you doing?! Get out there and save as many dogs as you can carry! The love and gratitude you'll receive from your rescue pet will be worth it, we guarantee it.
