As the war continues to unfold, organisations on the ground and globally are actively supporting animal charities to ensure homeless cats and dogs find food and shelter.
Countries including Latvia, Poland and Romania have all temporarily lifted the requirements for transporting pets so animals can be rescued from war-torn areas and brought to safety more easily.
Most charities are in need of funds to purchase food. Every small donation really does make a big difference.
Another charity helping to save animals from the Ukrainian war is UAnimals – an animal rights organisation based in Ukraine. From rescuing stray dogs to delivering vital pet food supplies, they rely heavily on donations to ensure they can continue to do their work. If you’d like to make a donation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
