Following the events of the nuclear meltdown in Chernobyl, a vast number of domestic dogs were left abandoned in the outskirts to survive on their own. Because they are domesticated, these creatures do not have the means to defend themselves against the growing population of wildlife that are taking over the area. Human activity in the area will soon be close to none. That is why a decision must soon be made to determine the fate of these dogs. The research conducted at WPI endeavored to prove it possible to quarantine the dogs until they are eligible for transfer across the globe and be adopted into loving homes. As a result, this paper explores the potential quarantine protocols that can be utilized to cleanse the dogs of radiation contamination and extend their life expectancy.
