No money. Because of the financial crisis, homeless animals will suffer.
The guests of the shelter for animals "The Ark" may soon be back on the street. "The shelter exists thanks to charitable contributions, plus we were helped out of the city budget, but the crisis began and the funding dropped sharply, I'm afraid to think about the future of the shelter," said Irina Momot, vice president of the Odessa Union of Animal Welfare, "We are now restoring the fence, Every day everything becomes more expensive, we were warned that in 2009 we will be without help, and there is only one thing - to open the gates and release all the inhabitants. "
Gorlovi, it seems, really can not help finance a shelter. "This year, we allocated 120 thousand hryvnia from the city budget," said Natalya Chaychuk, head of the Odessa City Council's Internal Policy Department. "They are fully funded, the money is used for food, treatment, keeping animals in this orphanage." The budget for 2009 The year is not yet, and there are threats of money that can not be given in the crisis on animals, even now the finance department of the city council warns us that it is necessary to cut costs as much as possible, and to public organizations as well. " If a hundred dogs still have to be released to the street, then, as the deputy chief of the environmental safety department of the Odessa City Council, Valentina Datsyuk, says, the animals will be caught, sterilized and again released to the street
