Clean Futures Fund organized and operates the Dogs of Chernobyl program, which has treated over 1,500 animals in the last 3 years. Our programs also include human health programs for Chernobyl Liquidators, current Chernobyl workers and sick and disabled children in areas affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The Dogs of Chernobyl program treats the descendants of dogs that were abandoned after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. These animals face hard lives in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, constantly fighting for the basic necessities like food, water and shelter during the harsh Ukrainian winters for survival.
During your visit we will meet and feed the abandoned dogs who live in the 30-kilometer Exclusion Zone around the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. You will learn about our mission and history treating these incredible animals. After meeting some of the dogs and helping with our feeding program for these abandoned animals, we will visit the abandoned city of Pripyat, where over 40,000 people lived before the disaster. Your visit will include many incredible experiences as you walk through an environment where people have been prevented from living for over three decades.
