About 200 homeless puppies will be taken out from the Chernobyl exclusion zone this year. Animals will go to American "foster homes".
After the Chernobyl accident in 1986 pets remained in an exclusion zone. In recent years the survived dogs who managed to avoid shooting have removed numerous posterity. According to some information, several honeycombs of dogs live in an exclusion zone.
As reports the State agency of Ukraine on management of the Chernobyl exclusion zone, several dogs who are placed on a quarantine for 45 days are already caught. It is expected that in June the first group of 12 puppies will arrive in the USA. It is in the long term planned to save about 200 animals within one and a half years.
Works are organized by the American non-profit organization The Clean Futures Fund. Specialists of fund are engaged in catching and sterilization of homeless animals in an exclusion zone and also carry out vaccination against rage.
