Actress Katherine Heigl is one of many celebrities and athletes attempting to save stray dogs from Sochi. Stray dogs in the Russian city received much attention following word that the country’s government had ordered hundreds of them be killed before the Olympics began.
Heigl released through Twitter that she united with two dogs in Los Angeles Saturday. Both dogs are being treated at a veterinary hospital. One dog has been diagnosed with “parvo” and the other is being treated for a cough. Both dogs are being closely monitored.
