The World Cup and Our Work

Sochi Dogs is on the ground in Sochi rescuing stray and abandoned dogs. The 2018 World Cup has brought Russia’s stray dogs back into the spotlight. Reports of mass killings of dogs are coming out around the country.  At Sochi Dogs we are horrified about the situation, but we don’t sit back we believe in taking action and driving change.  Here is what we do and how to help.

 A lack of  shelters and spay/neuter programs has led to a large population of stray and abandoned animals. All of them are at risk of being hit by cars and targeted by exterminators. Without our work they have no chance of survival.

We strive to prevent dogs from ending up on the street with our spay/neuter program. We educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter and provide free and low-cost procedures.
 

Every year we adopt nearly 100 dogs in to homes around the world. For every dog that finds a home, another one gets taken off the street. All of our dogs are spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped before they go home.
