Galaxy Vets Foundation to aid pets in Ukraine

Galaxy Vets Foundation, the philanthropic arm of an employee-owned veterinary health company, Galaxy Vets, will prioritize animal support efforts in Ukraine. The non-profit has begun gathering supplies and fundraising. Donations of supplies, funding, or by providing telehealth services at no cost are requested.

The effort also has a personal component for the organization’s chief executive officer who is a native of Ukraine. “Ukraine is my motherland. We want to aid the best way we know how – helping animals,” said Dr. Ivan Zak, CEO of Galaxy Vets. “Russia's barbaric invasion murders thousands of people wipes out entire cities and forces millions to flee their homes in search of safety. As savage shelling leaves whole families without a roof, thousands of pets become homeless and in desperate need of food, shelter, and veterinary care. Blocked from humanitarian aid, animals in zoos are freezing, starving, and dying. Shelters, veterinary clinics, and volunteers are striving to save every life, but they are running out of resources and need support. We encourage individuals and organizations to donate to this good cause. This war is not just about the future of Ukraine. It is about the future of humanity.”

Galaxy Vets Foundation calls for veterinarians and technicians to volunteer their time toward no-cost telehealth. The group will offer free services to those impacted and their pets.

"We thoroughly assessed all the information we could get. We talked with volunteers, zoos, pet owners, and veterinarians in Ukraine to understand the need and the gaps we could fill," Andrew Ciccolini, Galaxy Vets Foundation Director, said. "Currently, there is an acute shortage of funding and resources, primarily medications, pet food, and supplies. Lack of access to veterinary care and professional advice on pet health is another issue we will address by providing free multi-lingual telehealth services and informational resources on our website. We want to ensure continuity of veterinary care in these difficult times."
