BORZOI IN UKRAINE
The National Borzoi Rescue Foundation is a rescue group, but in Ukraine there is no difference - for breeders and rescues alike, need is need.
Within our network of incredible people , Borzoi surrenders are fostered and placed using the same criteria that we follow for every NBRF dog. Their forever homes are waiting. But surrender is not the only option. We also continue to work with the Ukraine Kennel Club and Borzoi breeders, providing assistance with relocation or sheltering in place.
We have a list of people that we are in contact with regularly, but rely on many eyes to keep us aware. If you see a Borzoi family in need please send us a message through our website or Facebook. Let's not let anyone fall through the cracks.
Rescue has no borders!! National Borzoi Rescue Foundation - International is stepping in to aid Borzoi trapped in Ukraine or those with their owners fleeing to safety in another European country. Donations for food, water, transportation and temporary housing are urgently needed. We are partnering with verified groups on the ground throughout the area to disperse aid as required and will continue to update as we gather more information. Having money earmarked for this specific purpose is essential to this unfolding situation.
Donations specifically for Refugee Borzoi in Ukraine can be made using the "Donate" button found at the bottom of this article or anywhere on this website - specify Refugee Borzoi in the notes section of your donation page.

More information about the National Borzoi Rescue Foundation:
Established in 1994, NBRF is an all-volunteer rescue dedicated to the rescue & placement of all displaced borzoi. In 2014 the National Borzoi Rescue Foundation saw an opportunity to come to the aid of Borzoi overseas, and the International leg of this organization was founded. The need is great, the expenses are high, and the reward is priceless. So join us in coming to the "rescue" of Borzoi living in and fleeing from this terrible situation.

Sasha the elder statesman from Ukraine living a life of comfort and content in Hungary. At eleven years old, his life is his to live, sleeping on the cool terrace with food available for the asking. He jumps on the sofa like a young dog and even enjoys the occasional run. Thank you Edit Vereczki for giving this handsome boy a safe, soft place to land.
Sasha is just one of the stories made possible by supporters of NBRF's work in Ukraine. He continues to be loved and cared for on a journey of two countries, winning hearts from around the world. Together we are making a difference.

Fifa: NBRF-International Ukraine evacuee now living the high life in Italy. #Ciao
Zabava: You first saw her in the back of Ivan’s car. A senior girl who had been abandoned to the streets, scared and alone. Ivan’s work, fueled by his compassion and funded by your donations extends far beyond removing the immediate threat. Love and trust are learned again. Zabava will live out the rest of her life in Hungary where she is available for adoption.
To everyone donating to make these stories possible and especially to Ivan and Inna for being on the front lines of this mission, thank you!!
