As Ukraine Conditions Worsen for The Animals, Paws of War Ramps up Efforts to Save Animals Left Behind

Paws of War is desperately seeking community support to help save starving and injured animals on the streets of Ukraine.

NESCONSET, N.Y., June 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- On the streets of Ukraine, countless animals walk around starving and injured as conditions worsen for the animals left behind. Others are trapped inside buildings that have been damaged or destroyed. While many people are focused on the needs of humans, one group has turned their efforts to help save the animals. Paws of War has been on the ground since the war started, and they are ramping up their efforts to rescue, feed, and provide medical care for the family pets that have been left to fend for themselves.

"It is heartbreaking knowing these dogs and cats are constantly just searching for food, water, and shelter," says Dereck Cartright, a disabled veteran who is the stateside logistics coordinator at Paws of War. "It is a true Armageddon for them. We can't just sit back and let these animals suffer."

With circumstances for animals becoming much worse, even more so than was expected, many animals live on the streets of Ukraine. They are suffering and struggling to survive. With so many animals in need of food, Paws of War has installed feeding stations. The automatic feeding stations will be kept full, allowing the cats and dogs in need to access them for food and water at any time....




Horses, dogs, emus, bees: A farm in Ukraine becomes a wartime sanctuary (for humans, too)
By Nabih Bulos, Angeles Times (2022-06-05)

At the Green Grove farm, animals affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine are finding refuge with the help of Evgenia Molchanova, 31. Molchanova took in DiShiKa, right, after the dog was severely burned in a fire at an ammunition storage tent. She also took in Fiesta, left, a golden retriever from Kharkiv, who was suffering from severe anxiety due to Russian shelling. (Carolyn Cole / Los Angeles Times)

There once was a farmer with 10 sheep, a beekeeper with 41 hives (and a turtle) and a cook with 62 pheasants and peacocks. And they all lived peacefully in the fields and meadows of a place called the Donbas.

But then Russian invaders came from the north and east, and rockets rained down around them, and the farmer, beekeeper and cook prepared to leave their homes, joining millions of other Ukrainians in an exodus that has become the largest migrant crisis in Europe since World War II.

With their owners getting ready to go, where could the sheep, the bees (and the turtle), the pheasants and the peacocks go?

The answer was the Green Grove, a farm and fromagerie in a bucolic corner of the Ukrainian countryside that has become an unexpected sanctuary for an ever-expanding stable of animals displaced by the war — and for some of the humans who couldn’t bear to part with them...

Before the war, Irina Petrova - owner of Mariupol Chihuahua kennel ‘Iz Doma Petroff’ - had a “good life”.

“I had everything, a big beautiful bright house, a wonderful job, Chihuahua dogs, a business,” she recalls.

But when Russian forces attacked her city, Irina’s life collapsed.

Soldiers bombarded and encircled the town, trapping hundreds of thousands of civilians inside...
