Convert an abandoned town in the middle of the Russian taiga into the world's largest open dog shelter. A lifelong relocation of stray dogs from around the world is made possible by donations from animal lovers.
People in many cities are afraid of stray dog packs roaming the streets.
Shelters for dogs around the world are full. If the dogs are not adopted by a certain time in the shelter, they are killed.
This place could potentially accept millions of dogs where they could live out their lives in freedom.
In Russia, the world's largest taiga stretches about 5,800 kilometers (3,600 miles), from the Pacific Ocean to the Ural Mountains.
Pick an abandoned town or army base somewhere in the middle of the Russian taiga. Preferably next to an abandoned airport.
Largest open dog shelter in the world
Convert the town/base into the largest open dog shelter in the world. Establish a program that:
Accepts healthy stray dogs from all over the world
Spays/neuters, vaccinate, and tags them upon arrival
Establishes small packs of 5-10 dogs that are kept in adjacent cages long enough for them to get used to and accept each other as a pack.
Releases the packs into the wild
There is only forest that stretches for thousands of kilometers/miles in each direction. The dogs can go out and fend for themselves or stay close to the dog town where food is provided on a daily basis. They can't do much harm to the environment. Nature will take its course.
Running the shelter as a sustainable business
The town (or country) receives payment for each dog that is flown in. The payment roughly covers several years worth of food and potential meds/treatment for each dog. The payment also includes a portion that is meant to sustain the dog town as a business and compensate the country/county for doing it.
Donations to send the dogs off
Dog shelters all over the world ask local people for donations that pay for each dog's trip to the dog town. Proof of delivery is provided via:
live video streaming of loading, unloading the animals
flight radar plane trip
showing individual dogs upon arival
come up with more ways to prove that the animals are not killed
Vaccination against diseases
The dogs receive subsequent vaccines via food that is thrown from helicopters.
All the dogs are spayed and neutered. They can't have offspring. If this turns out to be a bad idea, nature will recover in 20 years after the project has ended and the last dog dies of old age.
