Three U.S. Olympic hockey team members, Ryan Miller, David Backes and Kevin Shattenkirk, are the latest admirable Olympians who are planning on bringing unwanted Sochi stray dogs home.

In an interview with USA Today, Backes said about the Sochi strays, “They kind of were portrayed a little bit as rabid animals that were dangerous. I don’t know if anyone’s seen that out of those animals. I think you’ve seen a lot of friendly, smart street dogs that have perhaps have had a tough life and had to find ways to get food and shelter and water and all that good stuff.”

The three hockey players join skier Gus Kenworthy and snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis as the latest Olympians to save stray dogs at the site of the Winter Olympics, and this trend is as heartwarming as it gets, especially considering the news stories that popped up just before the Olympics began about the execution of Sochi strays in an attempt to clean the city for the games.

So which Olympian is going to be the next Sochi stray saver?
