The emergency for animals continues especially since when European countries, Italy included, have blocked the entry of stray and shelters’ animals coming from Ukraine. Animals who are trying to survive in a country severely affected by war and that are constantly in need of food, care and assistance.
The 20 tons of humanitarian aid arrived in Kyiv about ten days ago with the ceaseless logistical support of our Polish member league Fundacja Odin have been all finally distributed across the country thanks to the tireless work of our local member associations Happy Paw and KSPA Lucky Strand.
Wet and dry food for adult dogs and cats, specific food for puppies, litter boxes, litter, pet carriers, bowls, leashes, snacks, probiotics, multivitamins, anti-ticks and flea, gauze, syringes, toys reached many four-legged friends in need of help. All supply was shared amongst different shelters in the country as well as to other associations and volunteers and to ordinary citizens left without food for their pets.
