About Us
We are their voice

At Animal protection UA we do exactly what our name says – we protect animals from suffering in Ukraine. In the current economic situation people can`t take care about their home animals. Because of this animals do not have medicine support and have inappropriate existence conditions. We are directly helping low-income pet owners because government does not have funds even for human shelters.
Our work includes helping people who can’t take care about their pets, rescuing wild animals from private zoo`s and sterilizing and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in country. Wherever possible we return rescued animals to their natural environment. But we also provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.
As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.

Our Mission


The Animal Protection UA® (APU®) is the humane society, established in Ukraine.
Our organization was founded on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in Kiev City, the APU maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are the animals voice in Ukraine and depend on support from individuals from all over the world.

APU Strategic Cause Partnerships enable diverse companies to benefit from the enormous appeal of animals. Partnering with the APU raises awareness and revenue for animal welfare programs and gives consumers the opportunity to help animals in need.
Some terrific people, companies and organizations that have graciously donated their time, material and/or labor in their area of expertise as a way of supporting the Animal Protection UA.
