Help for stray and disabled Ukrainian animals

Lena and her husband feed, rescue and care for many stray animals roaming the streets of Zhytomyr, Ukraine.

They have a small group called LAPA UA its mission is to help street animals with;
  • sterilisation
  • food
  • rehabilitation
  • adoption

LAPA UA has been paying out of pocket for all medical expenses and food including helping rehabilitating disabled animals.

In the next few weeks, a vet will make a special trip to sterilise as many of the animals as possible. A single sterilisation costs 18 Euros.

In raising money, we want to help LAPA UA pay for the sterilisation, and medical treatment; continue rehabilitation of disabled animals and of course, continue feeding and finding homes for them

Please dig deep and help this generous couple in their mission to reduce the stray animal crisis in war-torn Ukraine.
