No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB), the US-based international non-profit foundation, a leader in global emergency response that fights the good fight on the front lines in East Asia to help bring an end to the dog meat trade and ultimately bring about global animal welfare laws, crossed borders today, August 8, 2022, to help rescue organizations in Ukraine with their efforts to save dogs. Founder Jeffrey Beri has assembled a world-class team for this dangerous mission, and is boots on the ground now in Ukraine, conducting Emergency Response Ukraine, United We Stand, beyond borders! The strategic plan of this mission will be to address the complications rescues are facing in their fight to save dogs and help them survive and help more dogs in this war-torn country.
The NDLB Team will unite with multiple rescues and shelters across Ukraine, many of which were invaded by Russian forces. Some of these rescues have over 3,000 dogs! The team will access the current situation of the dogs and the shelters. A sustainable solution will be implemented to assist the shelters, ultimately resulting in helping the dogs. “We will work on plans of evacuation for the dogs in shelters. We will also strategize possible catch-and-release strategies for the stray dogs and possibly stray cats to be accessed by Dr. Matt,” tells Jeffrey Beri, founder of NDLB.
NDLB is recognized internationally as a leader in Emergency Response Evacuation. NDLB has successfully orchestrated scalable sustainable solutions in East Asia. “Our efforts are to share our experience with the Ukrainian people and provide resources needed to help bring sustainable solutions in Ukraine,” Beri explains. Beri also assisted as a volunteer in Kabul, Afghanistan, helping to evacuate nearly 300 animals for Mission Possible. Beri was onboard the Russian Illusion 17 military cargo aircraft for the entire journey from Afghanistan to Turkey to Iceland, landing in Vancouver, Canada, on February 1, 2022.
Joining the team on the ground is Dr. Matt, who has reunited with Beri for Emergency Response Ukraine, United We Stand. Beri first met Matt during the historic Afghanistan #MissionPossible Kabul, Afghanistan, to Canada flight in January. Dr. Matt met the team onboard the Russian Illusion 17 military cargo aircraft, during the layover in Iceland to assist with the nearly 300 dogs and cats.
What is needed most right now are donations to help facilitate the implementation of these sustainable solutions. Please DONATE NOW to Emergency Response Ukraine, United We Stand to help NDLB in its efforts in Ukraine.
