【6/6update】Support Ukrainian Animals

 

oreijo_omote_白ふち

It is been a month since we asked for help in our efforts to help animals from the Ukraine.

ARK carefully considered the best way to help and decided to use your generous donations to help Ukrainian animals whose families have brought them to Japan.

We are pleased to say that we have been able to extend assistance to families who have had to leave their country with their pets to escape the horrors of war.

While we would like to offer details of the way we have used your donations so far, ARK respects the privacy of the evacuees. After discussion with relevant people, we have decided not to publicise details at this time. We ask your understanding and continued support. ARK apologises for any concern this may cause and hopes to provide details once the evacuees have settled into new homes with their beloved pets. 

Financial support received as of May 31, 2022:  ¥278,500

ARK has applied 100% of your donations to helping evacuees and their pets.

We ask your continued support and understanding at this difficult time.

As the war in Ukraine moves into its second month, we are saddened every day by the scenes we see on our TV screens of the devastation there; the plight of women and children fleeing across borders into neighbouring countries, those still trapped underground in city basements and we can imagine the terror of the animals left there to starve. How can we help them? Some of our members and supporters have contacted us and asked how they can help. Although ARK has no direct contact with groups helping animals in Ukraine, we have turned for advice to Dogs Trust Worldwide, which supports ARK together with many other animal welfare organizations around the world. They have given us the contact details of some organizations; one a group helping animals inside Ukraine, the other on the Romanian border, helping people with their pets there, and their own appeal homepage. Please check the homepage details below of these groups on ways you can support them or support Dogs Trust’ efforts through ARK.  Donations are accepted by PayPal or credit card. We ask your support in making a difference to Ukrainian animals.

 

ARK also pledges support to Ukrainian refugees who have fled the war zone with their beloved pets. Please check our website for updates.
