The former Bachelorette star and E! News correspondent, Ali Fedotowsky, is on a mission to find loving homes for two Sochi stray pups she brought back to America. Katherine Heigl and her mother are on board to help find the pups their forever families.
The two dogs, Sochi and Adler, made it to the U.S. safely, but not without their troubles. Sochi was sick on the flight. “Sochi hasn’t eaten in 15 hours and is throwing up so we are hoping that it’s just from the travel,” Heigl said as she arrived at the airport to meet Fedotowsky and pick up the puppies.
Adler and Sochi will have to undergo a two to four week quarantine period to make sure they do not have any infectious diseases that could be spread to humans. Although Heigl is a passionate dog lover with seven dogs of her own and co-founder of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation, an animal welfare organization, she was nervous about bringing the Sochi strays to the U.S. She said, “We haven’t done this before. We haven’t done a rescue from another country. I’m nervous for the dogs. It’s an awfully long flight. I’m hoping it’s the beginning of the good life to come.”
Amanda Bird was the latest celebrity to fall in love with a Sochi stray and Fedotowsky has continued this trend with her valiant effort to give these two dogs the love they deserve. So far, the pups are doing well. Sochi has been diagnosed with parvovirus and Adler has a cough, but the two will receive the medical care they need before they are placed with loving families.
