It's hard to imagine that almost two months have passed since the closing of the Winter Olympics. Our shelter that begun only weeks before the Opening Ceremony has expanded tremendously all thanks to you!
We have been busy putting up dogs runs and constructing a special puppies-only area. At the moment we are equipped to accommodate just over 40 dogs.
In the coming months we will be finalizing papers to lease additional property to be able to house more dogs and finally becoming an official charitable organization.
In the midst of all of this we have also been busy caring for the dogs already living in our shelter and those still on the streets in Sochi.
Since we began our work our volunteers have touched the lives of more than 400 dogs. But ourjob is far from over. Officials have once again begun poisoning dogs and we are desperately trying to get as many dogs off the street as possible.
Many people have been asking about adoption in the US and Canada. At the moment we are working with a paid transportation company that charges approximately $1000 per dog. If you are interested in adopting please reply and let me know.
All of the dogs available for adoption are currently on our brand new website:sochidogs.org
As you can see these past few months we have gone from not having a single animal shelter in Sochi to drawing the attention of international media to the plight of stray dogs and we are in the works of establishing an official non-profit organization. I cannot stress enough how much your support matters and how much YOU have made this happen.
Please continue to share our work with you friends, family and media contacts so we can continue standing up for innocent dogs in harms way, especially as the poisoning in Sochi continues. If you are in the position to donate, we are accepting donations through Indiegogo, as it is one of the few international options available.
