In the third and last installment of our video conversations with those brave individuals saving animals in the frontlines of the war in Eastern Ukraine, we touch base with Valentina Mamay, Director of the Berdyansk SPCA.

Surviving in the midst of the ongoing armed conflict, Valentina’s shelter was almost taken over by the military to be used as a command post.

Luckily, that threat is now gone but she depends on help from all of us to care for more than 250 dogs and cats.

Valentina’s greatest challenge is transporting water, food and rescued animals in her small, run-down car.

We are very excited to announce, that thanks in part to your support, we were able to grant funds for the Berdyansk SPCA to acquire a more suitable and safe vehicle.
