Ukraine Animals in Crisis | Veterinarians Without Borders

Help Save Ukraine Animals

Thank you for stepping forward today to help feed and care for animals in shelters in Ukraine, and for those fleeing with their animals. The need is urgent – by the day and now, by the hour.

More than 100,000 dogs, cats and other pets are in urgent need of food, water, medicine, and veterinary help.

We have partnered with animal humanitarian agencies who can get the basics to where they are needed the most, which includes 700 Ukraine animal shelters, and 1,200 drop-off points for food delivery where animals are sheltering with their human companions - to homes, to community points, apartment complexes, and where people have had to seek safe shelter from bombing and shelling with their pets.
