Ukraine Crisis Relief
The war in Ukraine has become the fastest-growing humanitarian crisis since World War II. The United Nations is warning that continued conflict in Ukraine could displace 10 million people — a staggering number that would make it one of the largest refugee crises on earth. In addition to numerous civilian casualties and the growing refugee crisis, shelters, rescue groups and veterinary clinics in Ukraine are making every effort to provide safety and urgent care to animals caught up in the conflict as well.
How can you help?
Make a donation to provide nourishing meals, relocation assistance, medical attention, emergency supplies, and support short and long-term projects that foster and promote democracy and opportunities for Ukrainians to prosper.
