Russian missiles continue to rain down on Ukraine. Many people have fled the bombed areas, but a few remain to care for the abandoned and homeless animals.

These innocent animals are caught in the crossfire and need our help. Several missiles have hit Best Friends (“The Ark”) animal shelter at their new location and destroyed many of the kennels and injured some animals.
