For our animal welfare friends

**UPDATE 27 Feb 22** We are still working hard to try and get verified information of shelters that need help in Ukraine and a trusted colleague, Darya, in the US who has been supporting Ukrainian rescues for many years has set up a fundraiser to support many rescues that have been verified at this time. Many of the shelters she is supporting are included in the shelter information you have sent to us and money is already being transferred to those shelters.

You can donate to the campaign for the shelters at the page Darya has set up below

**UPDATE 26 Feb 22**

Kabul Small Animal Rescue have put together the list below for people who are leaving Ukraine with animals. The information has been verified as far as possible and states how it was verified. Please get this information out in the public domain.

We are still working with our rescue partners to establish who the animals shelters are that cannot leave and find out how help can be given. Right now banks are closed, paypal doesn't work, a key bridge has been blown up cutting some rescues off from being able to get out to buy supplies but we are working hard on trying to verify rescues and find ways to get help to them.

****This is a work in progress, and just the basics of export regulations as we can find them now--PDF coming****

*****************************************************************

War Paws is getting many messages from caring supporters who are concerned about Ukraine and its people and animals. War Paws is devastated watching the news of Russia’s invasion on Ukraine. We see thousands of people fleeing the country with their pets and we are truly thankful that they have not left their pets behind but we are deeply concerned for the many animal rescues in Ukraine who are not able to move because they are caring for multiple animals in shelters with already stretched resources.

Rescuers are refusing to leave the animals in their care and are risking their own lives to ensure that they can provide the care these animals need but as we have seen so many times before in areas of conflict it does not take long for food, medicine and other supply shortages to take hold so we are speaking to rescuers on the ground in Ukraine to establish what we can do to help them during these dark times.

Orgs across the world are working together gathering information on how they can help the animals and rescuers of Ukraine as well as many European countries opening their borders to people and animals and we hope that this continues. Our rescue partners Kabul Small Animal Rescue and SPCA International are also gathering information to see what can be done to help but these efforts will take some time to co-ordinate how help can best be given and establish legitimate routes for donations before any fundraising begins.

Please keep the people and animals of Ukraine in your thoughts, as we have seen so many times in recent decades the cost to both human and animal life as a result of war is completely devastating.

If you know of a rescue org in Ukraine that needs help please do send us the information and we will be sharing this information with our rescue partners so we can try and get together valid information on how to make donations that will reach them and help them to continue their work.
