Fort Collins’ Street Dog Coalition serving Ukraine refugee pets

After looking at the constant stream of Ukrainian refugees trek across their borders on the news, Fort Collins veterinarian Jon Geller witnessed their journeys firsthand before this thirty day period. 

Geller, founder and director of the Fort Collins-born Road Canine Coalition, just lately put in 10 times doing work out of a makeshift veterinary clinic tent on the eastern suggestion of Romania — standing ready as weary Ukrainian refugees were ferried throughout the Danube River carrying suitcases and, in some occasions, their household pets. 

The temporary border clinic, which was set up by the nonprofit with the assist of a pair of Romanian veterinarians and local border authorities, is providing refugees’ pets with no cost veterinary tests, vaccines, microchipping and the documentation and pet passports wanted to continue to keep traveling with them by means of the European Union, Geller reported.

In other instances, Geller said he saw transports come across the border with homeless animals that had been left behind in Ukraine amid Russia’s ongoing invasion of the state.
