Without you, none of this would be possible
First, thank you so much for your help so far, your commitment and your donations have helped us make a real difference.
Sadly, there are always more animals to help and more abusers to stop. The police are really benefiting from our training and we want to be able to keep on providing it, which means we need you now more than ever.
We need your help to make communities safer in Ukraine, but other countries are watching what we’re doing too. Bringing our insight and experience to those countries means we can save even more animals from becoming victims of crime.
In 2019, we presented to politicians and law enforcement professionals about our work in London, Toronto and Cento in Italy. We also appeared on national and local TV across Ukraine, with lots of online interviews too.
In February 2020, we presented our ‘Safer Handling of Dogs’ manual to the Ukrainian patrol police. The manual will be sent to police officers, offering advice on the safe handling of dogs and how to read them.
We need your help to get further changes into Ukrainian law that will improve animal welfare. One of these is Law 2351, which would outlaw the mass euthanasia of street dogs. We’re working with lawyers to support new changes to the law, but we’re asking our supporters to take action too, by emailing the Government of Ukraine.
What are our plans for the future?
- Until travel restrictions are lifted, we will be training police and animal groups through online platforms.
- We continue to support professional animal groups. We recently submitted reports to the Ukrainian Government concerning the age of criminal responsibility in animal abuse crimes.
- In 2021, we are launching our ‘Hope for Animals’ campaign to showcase how much has changed since we started working together for animals. This campaign aims to highlight a positive attitude to all creatures.
