A few days ago Yummypets wrote an article about the Olympic Games in Sochi and the stray dogs sentenced to death.
Following this controversy, a Russian billionaire has decided to give $ 65,000 to build another shelter on the outskirts of Sochi to re-home stray dogs and thus prevent them from being euthanized.
If there are many stray dogs in Sochi and Russia it is because there is no real program of sterilization. The Russians have never been encouraged to sterilize their animals, and it is not in their mentality.
On the other hand, because of the great work and renovations to host the Olympic Games, many homes were destroyed, causing families to abandon their dogs, often considered undesirable in apartments.
