We have no words to describe the brutality and needless suffering inflicted upon both the Ukrainian people and its animals.
The Nowzad charity, with your help, will support and resupply as many Ukrainian rescue shelters and their courageous brave staff who stayed behind to care for the animals who could not be evacuated, as we can.”
They go on to say “We will also use our resources to support other organisations at the Polish border caring for Ukrainians who have evacuated along with their animals with dog crates, food, vaccines and other essential supplies.” Donations can be made to www.nowzad.com
