I donated to Clean Futures Fund’s Dogs of Chernobyl today and want to thank everyone who took part in the October pet portrait promotion, making this donation possible. Every dollar towards these sweet radioactive pups helps.
Most of the dogs of Chernobyl are descendants of pets whose owners were evacuated after the 1986 power plant explosion. The government misinformed residents the evacuation would only be a few days, and they were not allowed to take pets.
Now, there are hundreds of stray dogs in the area. The Dogs of Chernobyl’s mission is to provide basic veterinary care to these good dogs, including spaying, neutering, and vaccinating.
