Sochi Dogs Picnic 

Saturday, October 7, Sochi Dogs from New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts gathered in Lewis Morris Park for a big reunion!  Dogs sniffed their old shelter buddies, k-9 moms greeted their puppies, siblings wagged tails, and adopters met up with Sochi Dogs cofounder Vlada Provotorova who started the shelter during the 2014 Olympics and who helped rescue all of their dogs! 

Camp Bow Wow, Morris, trainer Chris Wright shared training tips with adopters, like how to hold a leash while you're chatting, the best way to walk your dog, and more. It was a fun afternoon and we can't wait to do it again next year!

See you next year!

Hey, we need names! 

These 3 little munchkins were taken from the street at the beginning of August.  They are doing very well at the shelter.  They were dewormed and got their first vaccination already. Now they need names.  Donate $20 and give a name to one of them. 100% of your donation will go toward medical expenses for these puppies.  Click here to donate and email the name you want to give to

Hi, My Name is Buck

Hi, my name is Buck!   Just a week ago I lived on the street and now I am at the shelter! I love everything here: people, food, dogs and my kennel.  Thanks to Frank, he did not pass by me. Frank, comes often to visit Sochi all the way from Alberta! I am actually the third homeless dog, who he has found on the street and taken to the shelter.  Thank you, Vlada, Masha and the Sochi Dogs team for coordinating my pickup, a vet visit, and taking care of me.  I am a very good dog and promise, I will be a great companion.

Be in touch, check my page, more pictures are coming! In a few months, I will be available for adoption and I would be happy to be a part of your family!




This pretty girl just joined the shelter! 

This little girl is not only pretty but also she is also very lucky. She was hanging out at the local market begging for food when Vlada spotted her.  It was best things that could ever happen to her, her life has been forever changed! 

First, she got her first car ride. Vlada took her to the vet, where she was evaluated and got ears cleaned. 

Then she drove around with Vlada for the rest of the day, running errands and meeting new people. She was a good passenger in the car, super friendly, calm and curious.  At the end of the day, she arrived at the shelter to the new quarantine area, where she got lots of food and good rest.  Welcome to the shelter little pretty!

There is a long way and many things need to be done before this dog will be ready for adoption.   She needs to be dewormed at least 2 times, then she has to get two rounds of vaccinations and then she has to be spayed. To get everything done will take about 3 months.  Please do your part, help us with the expenses for this lucky girl and others just like her!
