Every year, Ukrainian city of Odessa gets hit by flash flooding. People are used to it, but street animals suffer the most. Thankfully, there are people who care. A local teenager, Vladimir Maksimov, noticed a couple of puppies drowning in filthy water. When he had realized that the animals were in trouble, he didn’t hesitate to come to the rescue. Unfortunately, by the time Vladimir approached the puppies, one of them was gone forever. The boy’s father works for Ministry of Emergency Situations, he taught his son well. Please, SHARE.
Speaking of floods, if you want to help animals affected by Louisiana flood, it will be very appreciated during this Holiday Season. Thousands of pets, including horses and birds, were rescued from Louisiana flood waters. The luckiest animals have been allowed to stay in shelters with their families. The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Rescue Team with help from PETA have been providing disaster relief, sheltering and transportation for Louisiana pets. Here are some shelters that need help the most:
