    "These dogs are biological trash."
    -Alexei Sorokin


    The homeless dogs of Sochi, Russia, rely on the kindness of strangers to survive. This kindness can be seen in those who share their food with them, or even simply a tummy rub or a pat. It’s this kindness that has allowed the dogs to play in the local gardens, or doze peacefully in the warmth of the afternoon sun.

    Sochi Winter Olympics officials promised kindness to the dogs in the lead-up to the games. They said that they would use part of their 50 billion dollar budget to build a shelter for the homeless animals, in a humane effort to ‘tidy’ the streets that would soon be flooded with tourists.

    The start of the games is only days away, and the street dogs of Sochi are disappearing – but there is no shelter for them to go to. A local pest control company owner has revealed that he has been contracted to round up and slaughter Sochi’s homeless dogs who he describes as "biological waste."

    These vulnerable dogs need human kindness now, more than ever. TAKE ACTION for the strays of Sochi by sending Russia the message that compassion, not cruelty, is the best image an Olympic host country can project: www.AnimalsAustralia.org/sochi-dogs

    This makes me sick. You can tell a lot about the character of people by how they treat defenseless animals.

    They do seem awfully backward. I'm sure if the Russians actually had their way they'd round up and execute all the gays, too.

    I've seen first hand how America treats it's homeless. I ponder how it treats it's homeless dogs. I know they are not very kind to the humans that live on their streets, and subways of NY.

    Our government has never ordered the execution of homeless people, so not really sure how that compares in the least. Did you have something of value to add or are you just here to sling off based insults as usual? Nevermind, I know the answer.

    The hyperlink works if you cut and paste. Between this and the Russian gay issue, maybe a campaign to dethrone the international committee is in order. They have been worse than useless.

    This is so disheartening, it just shows another facet of Russia and its government. We can not truly say that every Russian feels this way, but for a people not to stand up to this is just a shame. This is why we have humane societies that take in shelter animals and pet adoptions, but it shows a lack of social structure in Russia and as a nation that needs to come to terms to this century. If they are able to do this, what about their homeless, and do not tell me they do not have homeless people.icon_cry.gificon_redface.gif
