About Us

 Animal protection UA we do exactly what our name says – we protect animals from suffering in Ukraine. In the current economic situation people can`t take care about their home animals. Because of this animals do not have medicine support and have inappropriate existence conditions. We are directly helping low-income pet owners because government does not have funds even for human shelters.

Our work includes helping people who can’t take care about their pets, rescuing wild animals from private zoo`s and sterilizing and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in country. Wherever possible we return rescued animals to their natural environment but we also provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.

As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
