Wow, a cool billionaire. That's rare. Haven't seen that since T. Boone Picken's wife tried to save all those horses. I hope they save a lot of dogs and shame on the Russian government. And shame on the IOC for not speaking out against it. Thanks for posting the story.

Mukava lukea tälläinen uutinen kaikkien niiden Venäjältä tulleiden huonojen uutisten jälkeen.

I'm glad there is some hope here! It would be great if some of the journalists could adopt some of the dogs.
