On February 24, Ukraine woke up to ꜰʟʏɪɴɢ .ʀ.ᴏᴄᴋᴇᴛs and .ᴇ.xᴘʟᴏsɪᴏɴs after governmental authorities of the Russian Federation waged a full-scale war against the country. Residents had to flee and leave their homes and valuables behind. Sadly, this included many pets…
But Love Furry Friends rescue stayed back to help, and dogs like Motya here will receive the assistance they need! The locals helped feed her and even built a doghouse, but she had no idea how to use it and just lay on the roof most of the time. Today, she has people to show her the way in life! 🙂
- Happy Paw
This nonprofit supports shelter animals in Ukraine and promotes the humane treatment of stray animals. They are currently working on collecting information regarding shelters’ conditions and urgent needs. “According to our data, all animals are alive and there is food for the next few days. The biggest problem is that no delivery service is currently able to deliver the necessary food and groceries to the shelters. And also in the absence of fuel for vehicles and the possibility in some regions to withdraw cash or calculate a grocery card,” they wrote in a recent post on Facebook.
- Shelter Ugolyok
This animal rescue and farm sanctuary in Ukraine is building up a wartime food reserve for their hundreds of animals and is currently facing difficulty transporting supplies so close to the bombings. To help Shelter Ugolyok, you can make a donation via PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org), Venmo (pawsofhelp) and Fundrazr or Patreon.
For over 20 years, Sirius has been caring for stray animals in Kyiv and its suburbs. As one of the largest animal shelters in Ukraine, they need all the support they can get. “We are in place. We are not going to run! We must believe in our country and our defenders!” Sirius wrote in a recent post.
- Casa lui Patrocle
This Romanian nonprofit has been advocating for animals since 2016, and is now at the border making sure that no family crossing over from Ukraine has to leave their pet behind. Volunteers with this organization are working to find housing, shelter and veterinary assistance for animals in need of help — regardless of species.
