Pets can`t save
On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. The occupiers are destroying infrastructure, schools, hospitals and homes. Hundreds of civilians were killed in Russian artillery shelling and rocket bombings. Thousands are wounded and have become refugees.
The hostages of the war are pets that were left without access to food and veterinary services. Many animals are abandoned on the streets, and shelters are on the verge of survival.
Leftover food runs out quickly and shops cannot operate in dangerous places. Since there is no logistics for delivery of products to the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, there are minimal or no products available.
Kormotech has engaged to coordinate efforts to save animals and has launched the initiative «Save Pets of Ukraine», in partnership with U.S. entities Greater Good Charities, Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, American Pet Products Association, Pets Around the World, and Matrix Partners.
Implemented by U-Hearts, the emergency initiative provides pet food and critical supplies to Ukrainian animal welfare organizations and pet parents devastated by the Russian invasion since February 24. We identify the problems of pet owners, zoo volunteers and shelters and help them meet their needs.
