How to help animals in Ukraine war?

The war in Ukraine has brought the whole world together to help. Both private persons and large organizations are donating to various charities and fundraisers globally. However, most humanitarian relief is targeted at humans. 

This site has been created for the purpose of connecting the caring community with those in need. Our goal is to make it easy to donate as well as to avoid any intermediate steps, and as such delays and minimise administrative and transaction costs. With this goal, we have collated information about individual shelters directly from them. We have done our best to verify the information on this website.
