Ukrainian Refugee Pets and People

SPCA International is proud to support animal-loving Ukrainians in two important ways. First, we are partnering with Hello Ralphie to provide remote veterinary consults for those unable to reach in-person veterinary care. This service is a lifeline for people without veterinary training who are caring for pets or abandoned animals. Second, we continue to support partner organizations Romanian League in Defense of Animals, Gostomel Animal Shelter, Sava’s Safe Haven, and Street Dog Coalition as they are working tirelessly to support Ukrainian pets and families as they cross Ukrainian borders to safety in neighboring countries. Many refugees have carried their dogs and cats throughout their journeys and are relieved to be met by kind and compassionate pet-people who provide supplies and help them secure the veterinary paperwork necessary to continue their journeys.
