Deep within the exclusion zone of Chernobyl, a place known for one of the world's most catastrophic nuclear disasters, a group of unlikely survivors fights for their lives. These survivors are not humans; they are the dogs of Chernobyl.

The Chernobyl disaster, which occurred on April 26, 1986, resulted in the release of a massive amount of radioactive material into the atmosphere. The area surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant became highly contaminated, forcing the evacuation of thousands of people. However, many pet dogs were left behind, abandoned by their owners who were told they would be able to return within a few days. Little did they know, it would be decades before the zone would become somewhat inhabitable again.

Left to fend for themselves, the dogs of Chernobyl formed packs and learned to survive in this desolate and dangerous environment. They scavenged for food, drank contaminated water, and sought shelter in the crumbling ruins of nearby buildings. The radioactive landscape presented numerous challenges, yet these dogs adapted and persevered.

The Rescuers

After the evacuation in 1986, it wasn't until 2017 that a team of dedicated rescuers, known as the Clean Futures Fund, set out to help the forgotten dogs of Chernobyl. The Clean Futures Fund, in partnership with the SPCA International, embarked on a mission to provide medical care, food, and safe shelter for these dogs.

These compassionate rescuers face numerous obstacles in their mission to save the dogs. The radiation levels within the exclusion zone pose health risks to both humans and animals. However, armed with protective gear and a strong determination, they persistently work to improve the lives of the canine inhabitants of Chernobyl.

The Challenges

The dogs of Chernobyl face various challenges that are unique to their situation. The contaminated environment puts them at risk of developing cancer and other radiation-related illnesses. Additionally, the harsh winters and lack of readily available resources make survival even more difficult.

The Clean Futures Fund provides medical treatment to the dogs, including vaccinations against diseases commonly found in the Chernobyl area. They also conduct spay and neuter campaigns to control the population and reduce the suffering of these animals.

The Unexpected Bonds

What makes the story of the dogs of Chernobyl particularly heartwarming is the bond they form with the rescuers. Despite their past ordeals, the dogs show unwavering trust and affection towards their human friends. These dogs, who have seen the worst of humanity, still manage to find love and hope in the midst of their hardships.

The rescuers provide the dogs with love, affection, and a sense of belonging. Each rescue mission is met with wagging tails and grateful licks, reminding us that even in the most dire circumstances, there is still room for compassion.

The Road Ahead

While the Clean Futures Fund has made significant progress in aiding the dogs of Chernobyl, there is still much work to be done. Their goal is not only to provide immediate relief but also to create a sustainable solution for the long term. Plans are underway to construct a permanent animal shelter within the exclusion zone to continue providing care for the dogs in the years to come.

By raising awareness and garnering support, we can help these resilient survivors find the love and care they deserve. Their story serves as a reminder that amidst tragedy, hope and compassion can prevail.

The dogs of Chernobyl have become symbols of resilience and loyalty, surviving against all odds in one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. Their story teaches us about the strength of the human-animal bond and the power of compassion in the face of disaster.

As we reflect on the tragic events that unfolded in Chernobyl, let us not forget the four-legged victims who continue to suffer the consequences. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that these dogs receive the care, love, and protection they so desperately need.

'Extraordinary... a lyrical power that is rare for a debut author. Animal lovers – whether teen or adult – will love these books' - Lisa Edwards, author/publisher of The Hunger Games, His Dark Materials, Horrible Histories

A creeping cloud, shimmering with sickness.
Masked men, whose sticks explode with fire.
When you’re a canine survivor of the world‘s worst nuclear accident, it’s hard to know which to fear most...

Young strays Ony and Belka want nothing more than a safe patch to start their family. But a devastating explosion at the power plant turns their simple dream to ashes, and their home into an uninhabitable ghost town.

Attempting to outrun old rivals, ruthless exterminators and the trauma of a troubled past, the pair encounter a human clean-up crew who seem eager to help. Can the ailing strays trust the creatures that have cost them so much? And can they find sanctuary before the spreading fallout finds them?

Uniquely capturing the naivety of animals faced with the horror of a man-made disaster, this poignant story of survival – the first title in the Animal Eyes anthology series – is a timely reminder of humanity’s responsibility to the natural world.
