In these difficult times, millions of ukrainians were forced to flee their homes. We have already talked about those who went abroad, about those saving animals in zoos and eco-parks, and today we are talking about pets. These are our friends, whom we bought and packed in carry-ons, boxes, jars, and cars. For some of them, this was the first trip in their lives. But some people, fleeing the shelling, left their pets on the street. That is such a terrible truth because this is a real war.
