Ukrainian vet risks her life to rescue abandoned pets from the streets of Lviv

As Russian bombs continue to fall on Ukraine, millions have fled their homes. Nevertheless, some brave Ukrainians have stayed behind to care for stray and abandoned animals who are in need of food and shelter. Pavlina Harasym, a veterinarian who patrols Lviv’s streets every day, is one of those heroes.

Network for Animals (NFA), an animal welfare organization, has been providing pet food and assistance since the war began and is now raising funds of raising an animal ambulance van for the courageous vet so she can help even more animals.

To rescue the animals, Dr. Pavlina and volunteers are entering danger zones on foot. They bring the animals back to the shelter, where they will be cared for until they can be transported safely to Poland.

There have been 200 animals rescued so far, but if they had an animal ambulance, they could save so many more. The van can hold 50 pets, and would greatly increase the number of animals saved.

You are a good woman. God sees your godly deeds.
Dear God…please help and protect these people helping those animals and the animals too!
