From the first day of the war, Chernihiv was under heavy russian attack. The city was constantly shelled and hit with ballistic missiles.
Many animals were injured and abandoned, and the pet shelters also suffered. The request for supporting the pets was overwhelming and heartbreaking. Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, we have been helping shelters and animal volunteers in the Chernihiv region.
Now we have decided to visit on our own those people who left requests for help on the Save Pets of Ukraine website. We were glad to meet caring people here.
We managed to visit the home shelter of Olena and Anatoly, who take care of more than 65 dogs, some of which are fed in the city of Chernihiv.
We met Tetyana, the head of “Step to Animals” veterinary sterilization center Just imagine in the first month of a full-scale invasion, they sterilized more than 400 dogs! Now they continue to care for the abandoned, treating them and placing them in new families.
Svitlana and her fund Kotopesiki left an application because she also cares for many pets. Caring people take care of the fluffies that settled in one of the forest strips: 200 dogs and about 20 cats.
Most of the beautiful creatures arranged by Maryna and the shelter ZooChance are those that have suffered injuries, accidents, or cruelty. Maryna treats and takes care of them.
In general, thanks to our partner, we were able to give shelters and animal volunteers in the Chernihiv region:
- 🐾 1137 kg of dog food
- 🐾 696 kg of cat food
- 🐾 11 cages for transporting animals
- 🐾 15 cots and beds
A million hugs, and thanks for taking care of the pets!
