Ali Fedotowsky teams with Katherine Heigl to help Sochi stray animals

Back when the Olympics first started, we heard that there were a huge number of stray dogs in the area. We also heard that the Russian answer to that stray animal problem was reportedly to kill the dogs. Fedotowsky was a correspondent during the games for E! News and brought a couple puppies back from Russia reports People.

She is now trying to find homes for the stray animals with help from her pal Katherine Heigl. "This is Adler, which is a town next to Sochi," Fedotowksy tells PEOPLE of one of the dogs she flew in with on Saturday afternoon. "She's very playful." A male dog, Sochi, had been ill on the flight and wasn't so energetic.

The pets reportedly have to be kept in quarantine for 2-4 weeks to make sure they have no infectious diseases. Heigl 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."

After the animals leave quarantine, they will try to be adopted out. Heigl has seven dogs of her own and co-founded the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. The male dog reportedly had Parvo and was being treated by a vet and the female pup has a cough. Both spent a few days with the vet to get better. Fedotowsky's part of the deal was to get the animals back home.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
