300 TONNES OF PET FOOD DELIVERED TO UKRAINE 

FOUR PAWS and partners provide urgent help for thousands of dogs and cats  

6.4.2022

London, 6 April 2022 – In just four weeks, global animal welfare organisation FOUR PAWS, through a new dedicated website has managed to deliver 300 tonnes of pet food across Ukraine.  

FOUR PAWS together with International Registration System - Animal ID and Dogs Trust Worldwide, launched Ukrainian Pet Association Worldwide (UPAW) as a platform for those in need to register their most needed requirements.   

So far over 1,000 requests have been processed, mostly for food, medicine and other supplies.  

FOUR PAWS´ local Stray Animal Care (SAC) team has been active in Ukraine since 2013 and has treated close to 30,000 stray animals in over 60 municipalities.   

The team in Ukraine is normally operating a mobile clinic, carrying out catch-neuter-vaccinate-return projects in different municipalities in the country.   

Due to attacks and roadblocks, it is too dangerous to be on the road in these difficult times. It has been advised to stay home and avoid critical areas that could be targeted. Under the current situation, it is not possible to carry out such projects in cooperation with the local authorities. The health and safety of all FOUR PAWS colleagues in Ukraine are of highest importance to us. FOUR PAWS has therefore temporarily minimized SAC activities until further notice. The SAC team will continue the important work to treat, neuter, and vaccinate stray animals in Ukraine as soon as it is again safe to do so.  

“By creating this powerful partnership we have already made a widespread impact on animals across Ukraine.  

 
 “To be able to facilitate support on this scale means no animal shelter will be left unsupported. By joining forces with like-minded organisations Dogs Trust Worldwide and our trusted Ukranian partner, Animal ID, we can provide much needed aid and relieve the pressure on local shelters.”
