Goodacity – Dare to be Good

Love, care, mutual assistance, and friendship light our way even in the darkest of times. We live hand in hand, little palm in big, with a cat or a dog paw’s gentle touch as if in gratitude for protection throughout these last anxious months. It’s always easier together!



Vision and mood

Nowadays, we all help each other: people help our fluffy friends, benefactors help animal volunteers, whose possibilities are far from unlimited, and the animals that we save with our joint efforts help us all heal the wounds of war. Even during the rigors of war, people must not lose their souls’ light. Caring for someone, we support this spirit of love and empathy. With that spirit, we will win!

an animal volunteer

Step 1. Home for Lisa

Giving love and care to an animal that until recently was abandoned and homeless means changing the whole world for it and for yourself.

“If you pay attention to stray animals on the street, you will always help them,” Ms. Olena from Chernihiv says.

“Some you will feed regularly; some will need medical assistance, and you will have no chance to pass by; you will find a new loving family for some fluffy ones or will become this family yourself.”

“This is what happened to us with Lisa, the cat, who was dumped off by our house last year, and she has lived with us ever since. Moreover, despite her freedom-loving nature (our Lisa, for sure, can be called the cat that walks by herself!), she made friends with our other numerous pets! For example, our dog Rocky, who usually gave cats the cold shoulder, got along with Lisa so much that they became bosom buddies! Previously, he chased other cats out of the yard, but he not only accepted her — they ate from the same dish, Lisa slept in his kennel during winter, and she also liked to curl up in a ball and sleep on top of Rocky”.


Step 2. True friendship

“Rocky also has a difficult fate,” Ms. Olena says.

“We rescued him from the war in the east of Ukraine and brought him to Chernihiv. Sadly, this spring, the war caught up to him and all of us here. Calling it horrible would be an understatement. Scared by all the shelling, Lisa disappeared for a while. We worried so much about her, looked everywhere for her, and when she was found, it turned out that she had a seriously injured paw. The vets said it needed to be amputated as soon as possible to avoid sepsis.

Unfortunately, we had serious financial troubles and feared we couldn’t afford the necessary operation. We were so grateful to the good people of Goodacity who helped to pay for the operation. We were worried about how the kitty would adapt after losing her paw, but Lisa was a real fighter! The stitches have already been removed, the wounds have healed, and she is actively running on three legs and living a full life! She is especially pleased to have her faithful friend Rocky by her side, as always!”



Time to sum it up

“I want our story to inspire other people not only to help homeless animals but also not to be afraid to take home a cat or dog with a disability,” the woman says.

“Because no physical defects will prevent them from being loyal friends and having fulfilling lives with caring owners! Lisa lacks one leg, but fortunately, she always has those who are ready to give her a helping hand!”.
