Without a home? Yes. Biological trash? No.

This is not new news I know, but I only found out yesterday about the social media campaign to show your support of the stray dogs {and cats} in Sochi. There has been much press around the mass cull of the stray animals, to help clean up the city and to prevent visitors and athletes from being in danger of coming into contact with those animals.

The phrase biological trash used to describe these animals has been attributed to Alexei Sorokin, owner of a pest extermination company who has allegedly been charged with ridding the city of these animals. If you haven’t read about it yet, you can do so here or here. The city was offered help by the International Humane Society last year to set up a vaccination and sterilisation program. The city was supposed to build a shelter for the animals too.

You can help spread the word on social media by posting a photo of your fuzzy love showing their support. Cross through the words biological trash and add your pet’s name. Use the hashtags #sochidogs #sochi2014.

Are these pets without a home? Yes.

Are they biological trash. No. Absolutely no.

    I’m sure glad I wasn’t thrown in the trash can when I was found running loose on the streets.

    Oh I read that .. how awful .. sigh.. a problem that was not addressed early on leaves the innocent to be eliminated .. we need to learn that lesson

    A charity called Good Will, which is financed by Oleg V. Deripaska, one of Russia’s billionaire oligarchs, is trying to rescue as many of the stray dogs as possible – let’s hope so.
