Chernobyl dogs headed to St. Louis, MO

Beyond Nuclear board member, Lucas Hixson, co-founder of the Clean Futures Fund, is working to both study and re-home stray dogs living in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. The strays are descendants of dogs abandoned by their owners when the Chernobyl nuclear disaster struck on April 26, 1986. In addition to rescuing some dogs directly, as shown in this St. Louis KMOV television segment, the Fund is raising money to bring veterinarians to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant to administer rabies shots and spay and neuter the animals. For more, see Dogs of Chernobyl.
