A PETA-supported team in Ukraine called Animal Rescue Kharkiv (ARK) rescued several baby goats (kids) recently, effecting an adorable “kindergarten.”

The war had taken everything from these goats but their lives—their home was blown to bits, and their elderly owner suddenly passed away. By the time the owner’s daughter called ARK for help, the mother goats were so starved that they had stopped producing milk and were unable to feed their kids.

Now, the whole family is living in a safe place near Kharkiv with a kind caretaker who gives the moms nutrient-rich food to help them gain weight and bottle-feeds the little ones.

Rescued in Ukraine: How PETA is Helping Animals Like the Baby Goats

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:

  • PETA-supported teams have rescued more than 15,000 animals—and counting!
  • Cats, dogs, horses, and other animals have received more than 1.5 million kilograms of food since the beginning of the war.
  • Beautiful safe spaces—like this cat refuge—are being maintained for around 1,300 animals in Kharkiv, where a PETA-supported clinic treats 100 to 130 seriously injured or sick animals every day.
  • The PETA-supported team at Animal Rescue Kharkiv has reunited 60% of all their rescued and recovered animals with their original families.
