THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION! WE COLLECTED ABOUT $500.
Throughout the war in Ukraine, countless animals have been left homeless or abandoned as terrified people have fled or taken shelter. The Russian onslaught shows no signs of abating – in fact, the situation is getting steadily worse for the animals of Ukraine as the days of war turn into weeks and months of fighting.
Animals who have managed to survive this long on the streets are injured, starving and deeply, severely traumatized. Most heart-breaking of all, countless dogs and cats have given birth on the streets in the middle of a war. Puppies and kittens, the most helpless animals of all, are desperately fighting for life as their mothers dodge bullets and bombs, scrounging for scraps to eat, with barely enough strength to keep themselves alive, let alone feed their babies.
It’s a tragedy, but we have promised to do as much as we can to help, for as long as the war continues, and that’s why we are writing to you today. RIGHT NOW, 35 dogs and a newborn kitten need URGENT TRANSPORT to safety at our partner shelter in Ukraine.
Will you help us fund their transport?
A good Samaritan in Bucha, outside Kyiv, has saved 35 abandoned dogs and a newborn cat from the streets. All the animals were starving, terrified, and utterly alone desperate for help. Many of them, especially the newborn, require urgent medical attention.
Our Ukrainian partner, Ecoprotection of Starokostyantyniv (EPS) in the Khmelnytskyi region, immediately agreed to take them in – adding to the 330 homeless animals already in its care. But EPS has asked for our help in covering the transportation and fuel costs: the shelter is roughly 360 kilometers (220 miles) from Bucha and given the soaring cost of fuel in Ukraine as a result of the war, this is a huge financial undertaking for a shelter already stretched to breaking point.
UKRAINE ANIMAL RESCUE UPDATE! We have helped feed, treat, evacuate and save THOUSANDS of animals!
Together We Truly Do Make A Difference!
