She said that the animals were in different states of health, and many of the dogs were puppies. Some animals are injured, chronically ill or disabled.
Džonsone said that the animals would be unlikely to remain at the shelter for long as people's interest in helping the animals is high. However, if the Food and Veterinary Service does not change its position, adoption will only be an option as of May 21.
The Food and Veterinary Service (PVD) warned earlier that transporting animals from Ukrainian shelters could be dangerous as the prevalence of rabies is high in Ukraine. PVD called on activists not to try to get animals from the shelters in Ukraine.
