We are ready to rush Ukraine desperately-needed dog and cat food and medical
supplies, but URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT RIGHT AWAY!
A terrible war is raging in Ukraine, and animals are suffering terribly!
Animal shelters are being inundated with unwanted pets as civilians flee the country or hunker down in bomb shelters. Vets and shelters are appealing to local people not to abandon their pets, but these pleas are mostly falling on deaf ears as locals flee to save themselves.
Many shelters – we are in hourly contact with several – are open-air shelters with no government funding, too many animals and too little food – and this was before the conflict, Chris. Now, they are even more desperate. We cannot ignore animals in their greatest time of need.
Just this morning, we committed to help (we just have to raise the funds!) Ecoprotection of Starokostyantyniv. Overnight, Oksana Zhurba who runs the shelter has already taken in 50 new abandoned dogs. Oksana now has 300 dogs in total who urgently need food, medical attention and care – and 16 more are waiting! If the dogs (and Oksana also helps 50 cats!) are left abandoned on the streets as tanks roll in and airstrikes destroy cities – they will almost certainly die!
Dogs and cats abandoned by their families are pouring into animal shelters – hungry, terrified and injured. Not even their OWNERS care about them. But WE DO! We know YOU DO. We MUST do everything we can to help them!
We are in communication with several shelters that need URGENT ASSISTANCE to feed their dog and cat residents. But the situation is deteriorating rapidly – every day, every hour, more dogs and cats must be taken into the shelters. And this is drastically increasing the shelters’ already desperate need for food and for funds to provide medical care.
We have to rescue and provide as safe a haven as possible for the innocent dogs and cats caught up in the war – left abandoned on the streets as tanks roll in and airstrikes destroy cities.
Dogs and cats URGENTLY need dry food – shelters have just days of supplies left, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult and expensive to obtain. People are panicking, shelves are empty, and animals are suffering.
We have local pet-food companies ready to deliver food within as little as two hours if they get paid in advance.
With your support, we can help the animals almost immediately! Together, we can bring them hope and comfort during this terrible war.
Discarded animals left on the streets ARE DYING as bomb blasts tear up the cities of Ukraine. Again, WE MUST RUSH EMERGENCY AID!
As is always the case in times of conflict, it is the helpless pets who suffer as people flee for their lives. Scared, bewildered and completely vulnerable to the fall-out of war, these animals are left without food, support or roofs over their heads – during the harsh, cold winter (which it is now in Ukraine), and the most bewildering time of their lives.
