Dumpster Dogs

They call them 'Dumpster Dogs'. Living- or should we say- surviving at the city dump. Scavenging for food and trying to understand why they are there. Many in the resort town of Batumi, in the Republic of Georgia, are street dogs that have been rounded up and dumped there by the government to "clean up" the streets ahead of tourist season.

The local shelter is so overcrowded that they will resort to paying people to shoot dogs or just drop off the sick souls at the dump. Left there to die.


But hope exists and love will prevail! The hardworking rescuers at Republic of Georgia Dog Refuge will not stand by and watch these animals suffer. With a $5000 grant from a Cold Noses grant award, they have begun providing medical care to and rescue these animals.
