Dear Animal Lovers,

Before moving to the United States, I grew up in Dnipro, Ukraine. My parents still live there. We could never imagine that ruthless aggression and devastation will so quickly become our new reality.

Now, alongside humans, there are thousands of animals in Dnipro trying to survive the war. Some of them already lived in shelters, and many more arrived when owners could not bring their furry friends to safety with them. And while the world raised millions of dollars for military and humanitarian causes, animal shelters in Ukraine are receiving little financial support, struggling to buy food, supplies, medications, and pay veterinary bills.

With the help of my parents and their friends in Ukraine (who are devoted animal activists), I built relationships with several animal shelters in Dnipro and, more recently, in Kyiv, personally speaking with each shelter’s attendant to ascertain their integrity and dedication. Now, I am asking you to give as much or as little as you can to help the animals of Dnipro and beyond survive the war!

I remain in close contact with each shelter and will send the funds directly to them based on the animals’ immediate needs. Each dollar you donate will help to save a life. And together we will win!

With gratitude,

Marina Bayeva ([email protected])
