After all the bombings and artillery we went through yesterday, I have some excellent news for you.
On our way out of the villages, we went to see the soldiers that gave us a dog to take to the vet as she was hit by a car last week.
This dog is so loved by this Ukrainian brigade that they were very upset that she was injured, BUT they agreed that she would have a better life if she was taken to the UK and adopted there.
Her name is Kula (Russian for bullet), and she is the most adorable kind-natured little girl – and we are now going to bring her home.
They will miss her, but her life will be better away from the trenches. But I promised that she would find a wonderful home and that we would ensure they get regular photos and videos of her.
She is now at the vet in #kharkiv, where she is recovering from some minor surgery (she was spayed as her pelvis was hurt in the accident). She is vaccinated and chipped, and we’ll get her a passport.
Next week Tom Bates will pick her up and get her to #kyiv with some beautiful people that will treat her like a queen and get her a passport. After that, we will get her over the border to Poland, where I will get her a stay with the ADA Foundation in Przemyśl.
After that, we will need to get her to the UK, quarantine for the requisite period, and then take her to a forever home.
This is going to cost a bit! PLEASE, PLEASE help us do this; she is so precious and so kind – and she’s a true war dog and worthy of the help.
Remember this dog would have come from the trenches to a peaceful home by YOUR kind donations.
You have seen what we have been doing and what we have been through to help the animals; here is a chance to help this one.
Eatstern Europe need our help, the amount of animals in need of care is growing exponentially and things need to change – and we have a plan.
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
We want to change the way animals are sheltered and tansported across Europe, and this is not an insurmountable task, it just needs dedication – and that dedication is something we all can do at some level.
We have designed a radical new way of animal santuaries, with the inclusion of an exisiting method of ‘bio-security’ but now applied to ‘companion animals’.
If we can build the first one in Ukraine then we can build them across Europe – we can be the change – all of us.
You can help, please donate what you can and/or spread the word – if we can get this message out to everyone then we can do this – we can be the change.
