As the situation in Ukraine becomes increasingly dire, people and animals need our support. Food and other resources are becoming scarce for those who remain in the country, while animal shelters are quickly becoming oversaturated with confused animals who do not understand what’s going on.
With so much uncertainty in the air, one of the quickest and most meaningful ways to offer support is to donate. Here are some ways we can support those in need.
