Team USA freeskier Gus Kenworthy is not only busy getting ready for his Olympic debut, but apparently he's also taken on the side job of rescuing dogs in Sochi.

ABC7 San Francsicso reports that Kenworthy, a Telluride, Colorado, native, tweeted a photo of him with one of the puppies Tuesday morning. He wrote, "Oh my glob, look who I just found! :) #sochistrays."

A little while later, he tweeted another photo with more, saying, "Puppy love is real to puppies."

Thousands of strays wandering the streets of Sochi, and animal rights activists from around the globe are struggling to get them out of the city.

Kenworthy is working to bring the pups home with him, ABC7 reports. On Wednesday, he tweeted, "Also, for the people wondering, I've lined up kennels 4 the pups & made vaccination appointments. Doing all I can to bring them home w/ me!"
