Brave Vet Goes To War-Torn Ukraine To Rescue Traumatized Animals And Delivers Them To Safety

As the brutal war between Russia and Ukraine happens, the internet has been flooded with photos and videos of people and pets fleeing their country in search of safety. However, not everyone is safe yet. There are still many animals in Ukraine in desperate need of help.

Thankfully, many heroic volunteers and shelter workers have chosen to stay behind to care for these poor animals. Some people even risk their lives driving into war-torn Ukraine to help them. The Polish vet Jakub Kotowicz is one of them.
