Tens of thousands of pets have already been reported missing in Ukraine during the wartime. We need to ensure that all pets can easily be returned to their loving families in this time, when a pet may be all that people have left. We have already provided 250,000+ tags and registrations for people and pets in Ukraine. We estimate that there are 200,000 more pets that need this service, so we need to raise $120,000 in order to ensure all pets are covered. Thanks for donating & helping pets!

200.000+ war-affecting pets in Ukraine will be protected from being lost as they will be registered and identified. The promotional campaign will educate people that pet identification is the basic to stop pet loss. If an identified and registered pet will lose its owners and will be adopted, a new family will have more information about the pet.
