Sochi Dogs Ready for Adoption

Cameron Thompson/All News 99.1 WNEW

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Most of the dogs that were rescued from the streets of Sochi and are now at the Washington Animal Rescue League are ready for their forever homes.

Eight of the 10 dogs are up for adoption, and one has already found a home. CEO Bob Ramin says he expects them to be adopted quickly.

“There’s so much interest in these dogs,” Ramin says. “A lot of people are going to be looking at them so hopefully people can come as soon as possible.”

Those that are interested in adopting one of the dogs can find their photos on the WARL website. Ramin also urges the entire family of those interested to come to the shelter to meet them in person.

The other two days should be ready for adoption in a few days.

“We’re just giving them a little extra time to acclimate and I think that they’ll be ready again soon,” Ramin says.
