As we watch the devastation of war unfold in Ukraine, many in the veterinary community are asking how we can help. Through the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF), you can now find helpful information about organizations providing emergency relief and support to those affected, including veterinary teams and the animals they care for.
The reports coming out of Ukraine are heart-wrenching, describing injury, food shortages, and damage to homes and facilities. As hundreds of thousands of residents flee the country, the number of displaced animals also grows, along with the need for food, shelter, and emergency veterinary care. The animals and people of Ukraine need help.
The AVMF, AVMA’s charitable foundation, is working to identify reputable organizations that are mobilizing to send emergency relief. Visit the AVMF’s Disaster relief in Ukraine page to connect with humanitarian organizations, veterinary groups, and animal charities that are supporting those in need.
