Since the start of the invasion of Ukraine, so many people have been helping animals cross the borders for safety. Now another massive effort to rescue Ukrainian pets is underway amid reports that Russian soldiers are eating dogs, rabbits, and cats.

Reports claim that starving Russian troops are resorting to eating these animals. Russian soldiers have been starving and struggling to find food for weeks. They have even stolen food from local farms and, in some cases, asked Ukrainian citizens for food.

A video recently went viral of a Russian soldier who put down his weapons and was greeted by a Ukrainian woman giving him a warm drink and pastry and telling him to go home. In the video, they call his mother, and he is overcome with emotion and begins to cry.

No one deserves to be hungry, and they should not resort to eating these poor abandoned animals. Charities and shelters are entering the crossfires to save all of the animals abandoned and left on the streets. FOUR PAWS has launched a new aid project to help feed animals in Ukraine, and the ADA Foundation is supporting and housing animals escaping the war. A veterinarian is even saving and operating on stranded animals in his kitchen.

We applaud these heroes that are risking their lives to save these helpless animalsSign this petition to stand with Ukraine and check out 10 Ways to Help People and Animals in Ukraine!
