From the Field: Finding a sanctuary for animals in Ukraine

Animals left behind by their owners followingRussia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 have been found a new sanctuary, thanks in part to the support of the UN.

Local young people in the city of Kropyvnytskyi, Ukraine, are teaming up with the UPSHIFT programme, run by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), to care for animals evacuated from dangerous regions.

Over 300 young people have joined the initiative to house the abandoned pets, mainly cats and dogs, and which hopes to encourage people to care about animals.
