Crisis in Ukraine: Evacuate Pets Out of a War-Zone

URGENT: Help Evacuate Pets From the Frontline

May 2024: Military members are currently evacuating animals from the Kherson, Sumy, and Kharkov regions of Ukraine, as the situation there is getting worse, and the frontline is moving. 

Dozens of pets have been evacuated from across the regions and every day, heroic rescuers are risking their lives to bring more animals to safety. Evacuated animals are being brought to the Patron Pet Center in Kiev, where they receive medical attention, care, and are eventually adopted out.

But there are countless more animals who need our help.

We were just informed that 50 new pets are arriving at the center today and another 30 are expected tomorrow. 

All animals are domestic. Most of them were abandoned by the owners when they evacuated, but some were surrendered by the owners because they decided to stay. Evacuations will continue to take place throughout the week.

GreaterGood is providing medical care and support for these pets so they can find safety at the Patron Pet Center. Give now and help fund these efforts.

February 2023 

It has officially been over 1 year since Russia began their brutal invasion of Ukraine, and Ukrainians are still struggling to survive. The UN estimates that over 13 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their homes and have now become internally displaced people (IDPs).. Many of hese men, women, children, and their pets have spent months living in fear, worrying that each day could be their last. With winter now looming over them and Russian attacks targeting electrical power plants, survivors need your help now more than ever.
