I start fundraising campaign for my Birthday on 10 June to collect funds for our (my and my moms) dog shelter in the war zone of East Ukraine.
It is located in the village of Ocheretino in East Ukraine war zone 5 km from the front line Avdeevka, in the state of active war with the constant bombings. Unfortunately a lot of people people leave the place and leave their pets behind.
We have 43 dogs and 7 cats. We raise money for food, sterilization, medicine for sick dogs and for reallocation to Kiev and the rest of Europe.
We need families to adopt them away from the war. Three of our dogs have epilepsia. we lost 5 dogs, from deceases and 3 were poisoned by strangers. The access to the veterinary service is limited to vet clinic 40km away war road in the town ot Pokrovsk (former KrsanoArmeisk), it is so difficult to get there, we lost the dogs before making there.
My mother is in charge of the shelter. She is 67 years old, she is on insulin for diabetes and has difficulty to move. She lived in the city of Donetsk, now under pro-russia control. When the war started, she gather her and others dogs and moved across the frontline to the Ukraine’s territory. In the Ocheretino the medical care my mom needs to support her life is not available. The clinic was shut down during the war, the medicines are not available there.
Currently she and the dogs live in the house with no conveniences, no central heating and toilet in the garden.
A week ago she had the electricity cut off. As a sick person she cannot take care of the dogs anymore.
My purpose is to move my mom to Kiev, the capital . wnere she can receive the proper medical treatment for her conditions, and reallocate animals to Kiev for further adoption in Ukraine and Europe.
If anybody wants to adopt a pet and give it a safe home, it would help us tremendously
