Disaster relief in Ukraine

Help provide the critical care for animals in Ukraine

People and animals in war-torn Ukraine need our help. Veterinary clinics, rescue organizations, and shelters are making every effort to provide urgent medical care as the number of displaced animals grows along with food and supply shortages and devastating structural damage.

You can support those affected, including veterinary teams and the animals they care for, by making a gift that will provide food, veterinary care, and emergency support to those caught in the crossfire.

Important: Please select “Ukraine Disaster Relief ” from the “Apply my donation” dropdown menu on the following page.

Gifts from Merck Animal Health ($100,000) and a matching gift from the AVMF ($100,000), plus additional gifts from the Doris Day Animal Foundation ($100,000), People, Pets and Vets ($100,000), and more than $246,000 to date from individuals have been received to help animals in need in war-torn Ukraine and surrounding countries.

Funds are being distributed to the Ukrainian Small Animal Veterinary Association (USAVA), Greater Good Charities, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), Street Dog Coalition, and European Association of Zoos and Aquaria to provide much-needed shelter, veterinary equipment, food, medications, and veterinary care.

All gifts to the AVMF are used to provide urgently needed support for animals and those providing care in affected areas. Consider joining the relief efforts by making a gift to the AVMF.
