Dog lovers worldwide have raised enough of a stink about the killing of stray dogs before and during the Sochi Olympics that the story refuses to go away. We posted twice last week about Russian rescue organizations who are trying to save as many dogs as possible (see here and here), and yesterday’s USA Today featured a story on how someone can actually adopt one of these rescued strays. It’s a difficult process, however:
It can be done over the phone and e-mail, said Humane Society International director for companion animals and engagement Kelly O’Meara, but it will require significant cooperation from a local and several layers of logistics that would be much less complicated in person.
The USA Today story links to a page on the Humane Society International site that offers step-by-step instructions for adopting a street dog from overseas.
