TICA Donates $10,000 to Aid Ukraine Pets and Owners Impacted by the War
TICA’s Board of Directors passed a special ballot on March 8, 2022, to donate $7,500 USD to the Polish TICA Club, Klub Kota, to be used for purchase of food and supplies for pets and their owners affected by the war in Ukraine. TICA’s corporate affiliates contributed additional funds to allow a total of $10,000 USD for the first donation.
TICA’s Klub Kota has been working since the onset of the war and as of March 9, 2022, two van loads of supplies have been dispatched with more donations on the way.

The International Cat Association condemns the aggressive actions of the Russian government against Ukraine. Our hearts go out to everyone negatively impacted by this crisis. We are deeply concerned for the welfare of our Ukrainian friends and family who are the victims of acts of violence. With members in each of the affected areas and throughout the world, our hearts and prayers are with all who have suffered.
Animals are forgotten victims of war. They do not know war or conflict, and as many people have been displaced and forced to flee to safety with their cats, there is a need for shelter and emergency services.
The TICA community is coming together to offer aid and support to those in need. Please join TICA in helping with aid to Ukraine pets and owners by donating to the Polish TICA club, Klub Kota.
