World Voices Unite To Ask Television Networks To Get Creative And Present Undefined An International Pet Adoption Event From Sochi


Citizens of the World ask for creative and innovative help from television networks to help save the pet dogs and cats in Sochi abandoned on the streets due to the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Tujunga (I-Newswire) February 18, 2014 - People from around the world have been adding their voices to the 'Save Sochi Dogs' Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SaveSochiPets?sk=wall&filter=2¬if_t=wall) asking television networks to have an International Pet Adoption Event featuring the Sochi street dogs and cats abandoned by their families when they lost their homes due to the building of the Olympic venues.

The concept is to have broadcasters and Olympians from around the world escort the pets for their television debut in an effort to find them loving and safe homes in Russia and beyond. The group believes that the power of the international news media would not only help these animals escape death, but it would also set a positive example for future host cities on the importance of handling animal welfare issues in a humane way starting the day they are named a host city.

"We know that an International Adoption Event from Sochi is a positive way to cover the issue while finding homes for animals that will most likely be euthanized, especially those in the 'city shelter' that was hastily created because of the bad publicity" said Kristi Schneider, Founder of the Save Sochi Dogs Facebook page. "Many other countries do not have pet adoption segments like we have in the US, and this would be a great way to introduce this model to the world. Pet Adoption pieces have great success and raise awareness to multiple issues. We're in touch with many animal lovers and rescuers in Russia and they are excited about the possibility of this type of event, hoping it will inspire their fellow countrymen not only to adopt but also to spay and neuter".

IFAW, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW.org) likes the idea. "We applaud all efforts to find humane solutions to roaming dog issues In Sochi and IFAW is ready and willing to help," said Kate Atema, IFAW Companion Animal Program Director. Founded in 1969, IFAW is highly respected around the world for its companion animal and wildlife programs.

The 'Save Sochi Dogs' Facebook page currently has members from 45 countries, predicting this first-of-its-kind event would have huge global reception and impact. While hundreds of these abandoned pets are in temporary area shelters, there are reports that thousands have been killed and many more are still homeless.

The team at 'Save Sochi Dogs' hopes that a television network will get creative and help the dogs and cats of Sochi. Schneider added "There are so many incredibly talented people in television in the US and around the world that love animals, I can only imagine how putting those brilliant minds to work on an event like this would change the lives of animals around the globe".
