About us

Since our founding during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games Sochi Dogs has been working to rescue stray and abandoned dogs through an active adoption program, spay/neuter initiatives and educational campaigns.

Sochi Dogs is not just a rescue organization, we are a vibrant community of advocates, dog-lovers and change makers who envision a kind and compassionate future. Join us!

What we do

Rescue:
We rescue stray and abandoned dogs in Sochi. With no active shelters, a temperate climate, and no public spay/neuter programs dogs are often left on the street and puppies are tossed out in boxes. Sochi Dogs is committed to rescuing homeless animals in need.

Change:
We actively reach out to rescuers and anyone helping homeless dogs to offer free/low-cost spay-neuter procedures for any dogs in their care. We envision a future where there are no more abandoned animals, it all starts just one dog at a time.

Education:
Sochi Dogs believes education has the power to create change. We run a Russia website about responsible pet ownership and importance of spaying animals. Additionally, we've run regular advertisements and pitch local media outlets to help bring awareness to the issue.

Adoption:
Sochi Dogs has a volunteer-run shelter with a live-in caretaker room for up to 60 dogs, a special quarantine area, and puppy play-pen. We work on a match-making process to place formerly abandoned dogs in homes all around the world.
