Arik miraculously survived a missile strike 54 yards from where he was chained to the side of a house in Ukraine. When a PETA Global Compassion Fund–supported team moved through the area to scoop up injured and abandoned animals, kind Ukrainian soldiers told them not to forget sweet Arik!

Helping Animals in Ukraine
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 12,000 animals—and counting!
- Cats, dogs, horses, and other animals are receiving more than 40 tons of food each month.
- A spay/neuter program has been established that reaches 150 animals every month.
- Beautiful safe spaces are maintained for 800 animals in Kharkiv.
- A PETA-supported clinic treats 80 to 100 seriously injured or sick animals every day.
