Launch of UPAW to support families and pets in Ukraine

The Dogs Trust alongside other animal welfare organisations, are launching UPAW (Ukrainian Pet Association Worldwide) to provide urgent support to families and their faithful companions in Ukraine. UPAW will be supporting the dogs and their owners on the ground, by funding and coordinating the efforts on the ground in Ukraine to ensure all who need aid can receive it. Providing food and other supplies to the animal shelters, vets and individuals who are in desperate need.

Dogs Trust is also working with Defra to expand its UK facilities to maximise the number of dogs and families arriving in the UK that they can help, whilst still protecting dogs in their care and the wider UK dog population.

We are happy to provide expertise in giving parasite control and testing advice for this increase in the number of pets entering the UK from abroad.
