With the help of hundreds of backers from all over the world, what used to be a pizza restaurant in Poland has been turned into a rehabilitation centre for distressed felines rescued in Ukraine.
This safe haven is now home to 47 Ukrainian rescue cats who found safety in Poland thanks to the ADA Foundation and its amazing volunteers.
The new facility has a large playroom full of cat trees, warm beds, cat toys and comfy petting chairs for volunteers.
Most of these cats at the centre need special rehabilitation before they can be re-homed so the foundation also hired a full-time animal behavioural therapist who is helping the cats deal with the PTSD they are suffering. Scroll down for video…
Hopefully, at some point, some of them could be eventually reunited with their Ukrainian families.
The Ukraine Pet Rescue work of Nick Tadd from Guildford, Surrey (UK) has continued to go from strength to strength since we first featured his story last March.
So far, most of his videos have been heart-wrenching to say the least so it’s lovely to see that his latest video brings some joy and a bit of hope as well. Watch EXCLUSIVE video of the new facility…
The funds raised by Nick and his wife Vanessa have been used for buying the first of two animal ambulances as well as helping fund this amazing rehabilitation centre for cats.

Their fundraiser now stands at over £132K, quite a difference to the £5K that they originally set out to raise when Nick set off for the Polish-Ukrainian border at the beginning of March.

Nick Tadd has produced several video diaries of his missions into Ukraine to deliver much-needed animal foods and bring back displaced and injured pets. He has had national coverage from both ITV and the BBC, highlighting the tragic plight of pets left behind in the Ukraine.
