Animals suffering during the war in Ukraine - Statement

Supporting Animal Organisations in Ukraine

Animals are often the forgotten victims of wars and World Animal Protection is heartbroken at the plight of all the animals suffering in the war in Ukraine.  

We are promoting organisations on the ground to our large supporter base, who are committed to animal welfare and will want to help in any way that they can. Organisations such as UAnimals and UAAA (Ukrainian Association of Animal Advocates), are collecting donations to support local veterinarians, assist animal shelters with financial aid and have been able to successfully evacuate a number of captive and domestic animals into neighbouring countries.  We are urging people to support these efforts and follow their progress.

We support every effort being taken right now to keep animals alive, safe and cared for.  For the animals suffering in zoos and aquariums, the crisis in Ukraine illustrates the peril we cause wild animals when placing them in captivity and leaving them vulnerable to human-caused activity and tragedy. It is vital we have a future where wild animals are living a wild life, thriving in their natural habitat, not subject to life in captivity.
