In the Spotlight – Ukraine – Animal Welfare News and Site Links.



Here we are looking a little more into animal welfare in the Ukraine.

We give a very brief summary with associated links for more.

For the past 20 years, Naturewatch Foundation has been actively running projects in Ukraine, working with animal protection NGOs and municipalities to implement humane and sustainable stray dog population management schemes, following the recommendations of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OiE).

Amid the political turbulence in Ukraine, some people are dedicating their lives to the wellbeing of dogs, cats, birds, bears and other animals in the country. Photographer Thomas Machowicz has been documenting the work of the Kiev Animal Rescue Group (Karg), which provides emergency services for injured animals.

Approach and Feedback ?

Being involved with animal welfare / rights is not usually much of a happy place to be for many of us. As you can tell from the articles on this site, there is very little in the way of positive news. Sadly, bad, sad unhappy news is often all we can give.

I have been in contact with Venus as always, and as from today, tomorrow ? – I am going to try and make posts a little more positive. I cant turn bad news into good, positive news; if only !, but I am going to try a slightly different approach with you, our friends and fellow animal activists, to see if we can sometimes make things in each post a little better.

It may be music, the odd bad joke, or a cartoon which I (we) hope will bring a smile to your face. We need something different sometimes, because all this bad stuff is not good for us, believe me; been there and worn the T shirt.

Changes will not be big, but some may be slightly different, interspersed amongst various posts. I am going to try it and see if we all feel any better with that approach.

Your feedback, which is always happily received, is always welcome – please use the reply links with any post to tell us; good or bad. This is your site as well as ours, and we welcome comments and views; plus any links you may wish to include.

For the animals

Regards Mark.
