Please DONATE your tax deductible donation to our 501 non profit dog rescue Fine Whines and Lickers to support animals of Ukraine  ( QR code is at the end of this post)

Few things, please read:

Dear friends/family

1) First of all would like to thank you https://steffanlaw.com/  located in Hillsborough, NC for providing FREE legal advice if our non profit 501 dog rescue -now, I know our rescue can help with this cause officially

2) We have contacted volunteers and have ways of transporting dog/cat food to hot spots of Ukraine ( it will be done when there is space).

3) Still looking for BULK dog/cat food supplier in Poland  and volunteers who can transport dog/cat food to Polish/Ukrainian border ( Shehyni)

4)   the long term goal is also to find partner rescues in Europe and move animals from hot spots to safe places ( if we raise enough funds we will purchase dog/cat crates to help to transport ), also need help contacting your congressman in US and asking to lift restrictions to fly homeless animals to USA. Looking for rescue partners who have the same goal to unite the strengths. If restrictions are lifted, looking for someone to sponsor the transportation costs or hiring an airplane to transport those animals. then rescue partners in US to be able to intake those animals. Remember, this is a long term goal- to find likeminded people with means and who are ready to support more than just an advise.

5) Looking for pro bono accountant for our rescue incase there is a large amount of donations for this cause and we would need an assistance with tax filing etc.

6) Ukrainians in hot spots- please post with pictures of your pets who are in need of food, name of your towns, pictures of homeless pets. Please remember, the food will be available in only places where it is safe to transport it to. But we need to spread the word. Maybe others can also help.

FAQs

You've got questions and we have the answers

Who are Ukrainians in the Carolinas?

We are a network of volunteers throughout the Carolinas dedicated to assisting the people of Ukraine and promoting Ukrainian culture in the Carolinas. Our network has been operational in the Triangle for the last 8 years, ever since Russia invaded Ukraine. We have been collecting and shipping medical supplies to Ukraine, helping refugees, wounded warriors, families of perished Ukrainian heroes and orphans. We have hosted numerous cultural events and advocated for assistance to Ukraine. Since February 24, 2022, when Russia started its new phase of war in Ukraine, we have become an even stronger and larger group and welcome your support. We have media coverage, politicians’ attention, but most importantly - everybody’s willingness to help Ukraine’s brave military and citizens. We already shipped several containers of medical supplies, so generously donated to us by local supporters of Ukraine and of freedom. We also provided localized support to various cities throughout Ukraine where there was a great need for food and medical supplies.

What is your status? Are you an officially recognized charitable organization?

We have incorporated in North Carolina and are in the process of applying for a 501(c)(3) charitable status. We hope to receive it by the end of this year, and upon receipt, all donations will be granted a tax-deductible status retroactively.

Where can I send my monetary donation?

You can write a check to Ukrainians in the Carolinas or PayPal or Zelle your donation to donations.ukrainians.carolinas@gmail.com

Can I donate clothing or other goods?

At the moment, the border is overwhelmed with various humanitarian supplies from European nations, so we are focusing our efforts on securing and shipping medical supplies only.

What else can I do to help in supporting Ukraine against the Russian invasion?

Spread the word! Contact your elected representatives and ask them to provide air defense systems to Ukraine, expedite legislation to allow Ukrainian refugees into US, and secure humanitarian corridors into sieged Ukrainian cities.

I have a press inquiry or want to schedule an interview
