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.

If You See a Dog That Needs Help:
Try to approach the dogs and feed it.
If the dog is friendly take it to one of the veterinarians below.
Get the dog tested for parvovirus, enteritis, and distemper virus
If the dog gets a clean bill of health, you can contact us and we may be able to take it into the shelter. We CANNOT take any dogs that have not been checked out by a veterinarian.
If you would like to adopt this dog, international laws requires you to wait 30 days after the dogs rabies vaccine before taking it out of the country. If you are looking to adopt the dog and need a holding spot for the 30 day period we may be able to help. Contact us here.
