Due to a lack of a controlled breeding and an adequate sterilisation program, ten-thousands of stray dogs wander around Ukraine. Marina Bolokhovets provides care and shelter for over 500 dogs in her shelter called “Friend” in Dipropetrovsk, Evgenia Semenova does the same in Pavlograd, some 80km’s east from Dnipro.
These organisations are entirely dependent of the help of volunteers, gifts and financial contributors. A large part of the funding is raised through social media, people from abroad can make donations via Paypal.
This series is dedicated to Marina and Marc, Evgenia, Alesya and Andrei, Ina, Vitaly and Dasha, Ekatarina and Vladimir, Elena, Vitaly, and many others I have met.
