The Mission

The Association of Animal Protection Organizations of Ukraine (AZOU) was created on 8-th April, 2009 in order to force Ukrainian authorities, local and central as well, into the true realisation of the Law of Ukraine «About protection of animals from cruel treatment», adopted as early as on 21.02.2006. The Association unites animal protection organizations of all regions of Ukraine and the burning question nowadays is the situation with the homeless animals, who are being killed by means of inhumane methods. Not only animals suffer from this, but also Ukrainian people, because most of Ukrainians are kind and merciful persons, and try to help homeless animals at their own expense, give them medical help, and can not reconcile with the death of their friends.
