Watch as a PETA-supported team searches a destroyed village for abandoned animals in Ukraine, scoops them up, and whisks them away for a second chance at a more peaceful life.

Rescued in Ukraine: How We’ve Been Helping Animals

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, PETA Germany and its partners have been on the ground building a robust network of rescue workers, volunteers, and activists to help as many animals as they possibly can. You can support this work through PETA’s Global Compassion Fund.

PETA’s Global Compassion Fund is moving mountains for animals in Ukraine:

  • Teams have rescued more than 13,000 animals—and counting!
  • Cats, dogs, horses, and other animals are receiving more than 40 tons of food each month.
  • A spay/neuter program is now providing free surgeries to 150 animals every month.
  • Beautiful safe spaces—like this cat refuge—are being maintained for 800 animals in Kharkiv, where a PETA-supported clinic treats 80 to 100 seriously injured or sick animals every day.
