Ukraine shelter that already cares for 340 animal victims of the war URGENTLY needs space to help more – including cats and a little kitten just rescued. They need food, vaccinations and veterinary care. Please, will you help right away?
Animals desperately need your help in one of the worst war zones in Ukraine!
Thousands of war victim dogs and cats are terrified, abandoned and starving to death in the Donetsk region. We must do everything we can to keep them fed and cared for.
Our partner, Ecoprotection of Starokostyantyniv (EPS) in Khmelnytskyi, is struggling to keep up with the never-ending stream of war refugee dogs and cats, all of whom need food and shelter.
Russian military strikes have obliterated virtually everything – apartment blocks, houses and even schools. Dogs and cats scurry on bombed out streets scavenging for food scraps, never knowing when death from the sky is going blow to them to pieces.
Since the start of the war, EPS has taken in hundreds of animals from some of Ukraine’s worst-hit areas, including Kharkiv, Kyiv and Mariupol. The shelter is inundated, sheltering 300 dogs and 40 cats. They simply can’t afford to keep up with the constant influx.
Recently, EPS rescued 14 cats and a tiny kitten from a heavily bombed region.
Even though its shelter is massively overcrowded, our team could not turn away these innocent victims of war. They acted FAST to rent an apartment as a shelter for the cats.
But this is just a temporary solution, and the cats will have to move soon. We must urgently increase the size of the EPS shelter for the newly rescued cats and for the endless flood of animals looking for love, shelter and food – lots of food.
Without our help, many of these animals will die. It’s that simple. It’s that dire.
Network for Animals (NFA) is still extremely active in helping animals across Ukraine in this terrible time of war. One of the many ways we help is by producing NFA-branded pet food in Ukraine in partnership with Vetmarket Pluriton, and having that food distributed free in the most dangerous areas.
