Providing Emergency Aid to Support Efforts in Ukraine

Latest update

American Humane is no stranger to times of crisis or conflict when it comes to fighting for our animal friends. Since our founding, we have been on the frontlines providing support and helping to ensure animals caught in war-torn regions are kept safe.

Today, we authorized a second emergency grant to the International Fund for Animal Welfare in support of their work to assist animal shelter partners and wildlife sanctuaries impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine. These critical funds will further aid their frontline efforts in Poland, helping to provide care and much-needed resources to desperate animals evacuated from Ukraine.

Like humans, these animals are dealing with the traumas of war, and it is only through your generosity that we can be there for the most vulnerable in their greatest hour of need. We continue to pray for the end of this senseless crisis and stand ready to help the innocent animals caught in this tragic war on humanity.

American Humane has a long history of helping animals in war zones dating back to the bloody battlefields of World War I when we were asked to provide aid to millions of war horses. Today, another battle for freedom is being waged and, sadly, innocent human and animal lives are being put in peril.

In response, we are honored to make a grant to the International Fund for Animal Welfare, which is helping shelters in crisis across Ukraine.

Too often, animals are victims of war, and we stand ready to be of service wherever and whenever they are in need.

Our hearts are with the people and animals of Ukraine, and we pray for a swift end to this senseless crisis.
