Saving the Dogs and Cats of Ukraine

As Ukrainian citizens are forced to leave their apartments and houses to hide or flee the country, most people are bringing their cats and dogs along with them.

Some of the pets settle in with their humans in cellars, bomb shelters, underground bunkers or metro stations.

Others make the long trek on foot, car, or train to the west, some leaving the country with their owners. Receiving countries in the West waive documentation and welcome refugees and their pets.

Unfortunately, some people couldn’t take their pets or were killed during the invasion. Homeless or lost dogs and cats are rescued and taken to shelters.

A wet nose or soft purr gives comfort to everyone.
