As the war rages in Ukraine, animals have been caught in the crossfire, with the situation growing more dire every day. While many Ukrainian zoos are supported by international zoo associations, small animal shelters – especially in Russian-occupied territories – have been struggling to maintain their care. In this disturbing video, over 300 dogs were found dead in a Borodyanka shelter after volunteers were unable to enter to provide food or water during the Russian occupation of the region. To help this crisis, Nova Ukraine is currently supporting several animal welfare organizations and volunteers that are caring for these injured and stranded animals across Ukraine.
To address the growing number of requests for animal sterilizations, Nova Ukraine has partnered with Animal SOS, a pilot program in Odesa to provide these procedures at no cost for homeless animals at seven veterinary clinics. The veterinary specialists generously offer to provide these procedures at cost for Nova Ukraine so that we can, in turn, offer these services free of charge to volunteers on the ground.
