From the New York Times:

Local animal rights workers say many of the strays were pets, or the offspring of pets, abandoned by families whose homes with yards were demolished over the past few years to make way for the Olympic venues and who were compensated with new apartments in taller buildings, where keeping a pet is often viewed as undesirable.

I’ll put up $1,000 to kick things off if anyone can figure out how to get the dogs from the shelter mentioned in the story and bring them to US foster homes for adoption. Dead serious.

Pictures after the jump.
