Leipzig Helps Ukraine – Animals

Information about the group

People fleeing war often take their pets with them. While entry into the EU with pets has at least been simplified for Ukrainians, there are problems in many cases at a later stage. In many accommodations, keeping animals is not allowed. There is no money to care for the animals and language and bureaucratic barriers make visits to the vet difficult. Team Animals therefore addresses both refugees from Ukraine who have come to Leipzig with their pets or are planning to do so, and people from Leipzig who are willing to take in these pets temporarily or donate food. We also coordinate people who want to help with veterinary visits and offer translations and are the right contact for veterinary practices who want to help in this difficult situation.
