Providing animal food and supplies for animals left behind in Ukraine, and bringing some back to safety
FROM NEW ZEALAND WITH LOVE
My friends in Poland are working all hours to gather and bring animal food to shelters and villages in Ukraine, and return with abandoned animals. Photos are from their last trip. (This is the Posnan branch of Viva animal rescue charity.) The original outpouring of local support has dried up (maybe compassion fatigue, or locals can’t afford to keep giving, or both). So we’re starting a fund here to buy the animal supplies “From New Zealand With Love”. They transport in regular cars, as trucks and vans can attract attention. The more we raise, the more trips they’ll make. As you know, the situation is pretty desperate. So they truly appreciate anything we can do to support them. I know I felt a bit helpless, being so far away and not able to be hands-on in saving these animals. This is a way we can all help from NZ, with love. Thank you.
We provide a refuge for abandoned and abused animals, and either provide a permanent home or rehome. We raise orphaned native birds & rehabilitate injured native birds: We rescue battery hens, nurse them back to health and find lifelong caring homes.

CHRISTMAS FOR THE ANIMALS 24 December 2022
It's not a very merry Christmas in Ukraine at the moment. The power is often out, so they're cold. And the bombing has increased, so they're scared. But your donations have helped our rescue partners provide them with veterinary treatment and food, and transport the lucky ones who've found a forever home in Poland or nearby countries. Thank you for helping them from afar.
