Tragedy hit the Chernobyl Power Plant in 1986. Nuclear waste and radiation spewed out of the Unit 4 reactor showering the city of Pripyat, in Ukraine. More than 120,000 humans were evacuated, leaving their pets behind. Most of these animals were subjected to the devastating effects of radiation.

Hundreds of stray dogs still living in Chernobyl

Of course, these animals that lived in the shadows of the Chernobyl Power Plant are no longer alive, but many of their offspring still live on, or in the vicinity, of this location. Certainly, life in the exclusion zone isn’t easy, either for humans or canines.

Many volunteers work with these Chernobyl dogs and puppies, feeding them, offering them medical treatment, and vaccinating, neutering and spaying them. Many dogs have been culled over the years, but more than 1000 dogs still live in this toxic location.

Life isn’t easy for these Chernobyl puppies

More than 30 years since the disaster, the main threat to these dogs isn’t radiation, but the freezing cold winters in the Ukraine. Most of these dogs don’t have indoor shelter and even if they have thick or long coats, are unable to survive. Malnutrition, disease and predators like wolves, also contribute to their early deaths. A non-profit organisation, The Clean Futures Fund, are sponsoring a project to transport many of these Chernobyl puppies out of the country and into forever homes abroad.


Happy Easter to all of our dogs of Chernobyl, peeps!!! ??? These cute pups hope you had a blessed weekend....

Chernobyl dogs given chance to live in loving homes

During 2018, more than 200 of these unfortunate Chernobyl puppies were cleared for adoption, with many of them going to forever homes in Ukraine and the US. Generally, it is only young dogs, less than one year old that are released for adoption. Although they have been living as wild animals, with domestication, care and compassion they should thrive and do well in their new forever homes abroad.
