A polish animal shelter, ADA Foundation, is helping animals evacuate Ukraine. Since Putin’s unjust invasion of the democratic country on February 24th, violence and destruction have been happening throughout the country, leading many people to flee with their pets. Shelters and zoos have been struggling to evacuate to bordering countries with their large groups of animals. Charities like the ADA are helping these shelters get these innocent animals out of these war zones.
The ADA Foundation has been operating for 30 years in Przemysl, a city close to the border of Ukraine. Radek and Jakub run the charity, and they home abandoned dogs, cats, goats, and even bears. Since the invasion, their priorities have shifted to help provide food and medical assistance to animals and pets fleeing Ukraine.
The Network For Animals has been helping the ADA Foundation with donations and raised enough money to purchase the Polish charity another animal ambulance and are working to send cat and dog food into the Ukraine war zone to animals that haven’t been able to evacuate. The Network thanked the donors on their website, saying, “This gift you gave will DOUBLE the number of animal lives we can save! THANK YOU!”

The ADA has helped over 300 animals since the conflict arose. Once the animals arrive, they are put in quarantine and are vaccinated if needed, and registered. Many require medical attention with wounds and suffering from dehydration.
Animals are often forgotten as victims in times like these and these charities and shelters are risking their lives to make sure the animals are safe and fed. Support them any way you can!
