UKRAINE ANIMAL CRISIS - In Memory of Leigh Luyt

Leigh Luyt’s mom, Jill Luyt, reached out to Veterinarians without Borders, after seeing the images and reading about the terrible circumstances that Ukraine pets, pet owners, and shelter animals currently face.

Jill’s message to us about Leigh struck home with us – given Leigh’s love for animals, his sense of justice, and his inherent concern for people, Jill wants to make a difference, and would like Leigh’s life and spirit to continue to have an impact.

Jill chose our Emergency Response Campaign for Ukraine Animals as a tangible way to continue the special legacy of the impact Leigh made in the world. Jill sums it up best:

“I chose Veterinarians Without Borders as you are a Canadian charity, and your principles and goals gave me a very good feeling. Leigh loved all animals, especially pets .... He would have been very aware of the war taking place in Ukraine and I know he would have loved to help in the work Veterinarians Without Borders does in so many endangered areas of the world. We would very much like to donate to supplying food, giving medical care, and saving many of the pets I see roaming the streets and pets left behind in these completely bombed buildings. I know these abandoned pets are traumatized, injured, starving, and they need urgent help.”

We welcome your donation in Leigh’s memory.
