A Dozen Chernobyl Dogs Were Brought To The US In 2018
With the help of animal welfare organizations, Ukrainian authorities quarantined about 200 dogs and decontaminated them so that they were available for adoption. They brought about a dozen of the dogs to the US so that they could be adopted into a forever family.
Ukrainian authorities hope to continue the process of clearing dogs for adoption and finding them homes, both in Ukraine and in other countries. With about 250 dogs living in the former power plant and hundreds more nearby, groups like the Clean Futures Fund are setting high goals for getting these dogs into safe and loving homes.
