In what’s hopefully only the beginning, 10 dogs from Sochi, Russia have arrived in Washington, D.C. and are being prepped for adoption.

According to CNN, Humane Society International worked with the PovoDog Animal Shelter in Sochi and two other organizations to arrange the transport, vaccination, and documentation for the dogs.

“These 10 are representative of some of the dogs that have been removed from the streets and are now up for adoption in Sochi,” said Kelly O’Meara, director of HSI companion animals and engagement. “They’re the sweetest, most interactive, very friendly dogs, very adoptable that just happen to be unfortunate enough to be living on the street.”

As we covered throughout the Winter Olympics, visitors to Sochi, including many Olympians, formed deep bonds with many of the strays wandering the streets. Some of these pups were even adopted and brought home.

If all goes well, HSI expects the 10 dogs to be available for adoption in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, they will acclimate to their new surroundings at the Washington Animal League Rescue. According to the report, more dogs from Sochi are expected to arrive in the U.S. in the coming days. Check out the CNN video below.
