Animals Rescue


Volnoe Delo Oleg Deripaska Foundation, one of Russia’s largest private charity funds, opened the first private dog shelter PovoDog in Baranovka village, near Sochi.

PovoDog became the first shelter for dogs in need in Sochi. Now there are over 200 stray dogs who have been brought to shelter by volunteers. Homeless and abandoned dogs have been given food and medical treatment.

The shelter features all the necessary conditions for treating and curing animals: spacious dog-houses, food and vaccines. All the newcomers are thoroughly examined and cured.

The shelter’s main goal is to rehome all the animals to their new owners all over the world. PovoDog receives dozens of adoption requests every day from Russia and abroad.

Volnoe Delo Oleg Deripaska Foundation is working to create a support service that will assist in preparing necessary permits and paperwork for animals’ adoption.
