Olympic Dogs Saved By Billionaire
Hundreds of stray dogs wandering around Sochi were at risk of being disposed of last week until a Russian billionaire swooped in to save the day. Prior to the opening of the XXII Winter Olympics, the dogs had been looked after and fed by the builders working at Olympic Park. The stray dogs began to go hungry after Olympic Park was finished, and became a concern to organizers. When a multi-billionaire heard the news that the animals were going to be disposed of, it reminded him of the stray dog he rescued as a child. He decided to help fund a nearby shelter to pick up the strays. Since then, the shelter has saved over 100 stray dogs in Sochi. Many of the animals have already been adopted by local families.
