ABOUT US

JANITA AND TAURAS PLUNGĖ CHARITY AND SUPPORT FUND is a long-dreamed goal, an idea which has been implemented over many years. The events of February 24th, 2022, re-prioritized our goals at lightning speed, and we made it clear that we need to do it the fastest way possible. We have realized that Ukraine will need support in the long term, so we need to mobilize and set up a fund as soon as possible to raise funds to support citizens, pet owners and their pets who suffer from the war.

Pets are members of our families, friends and partners who are unconditionally loyal and close to us, they teach us to communicate, to love and to never give up. A person who takes care of an animal is always of higher morals, he has more warmth, he knows how to love, he knows how to communicate. Therefore, we understand that the millions of pets in a war-torn country are in need of help, no matter where they are with their owners at the moment – in dilapidated homes, shelters, bunkers, or subway stations. They are close to their owners and for many Ukrainians a pet may be the only other life nearby, the only consolation, the only friend.

With this in mind, we have set up a fund amined at helping pets. Yes, at the moment these are Ukrainian pets. We are looking for ways to deliver support to the most remote corners of Ukraine so that every hungry pet can get the support it needs.

We also invite you to contribute to the support so that we can provide even more support items, food and other necessary means for pets in Ukraine.

THE FOUNDERS

The founders of the foundation are Janita and Tauras Plungė

Janita – a woman, a mother, a wife, a breeder, a cynologist, a successful entrepreneur, active for more than 30 years:

"The support fund was an old dream of our family, which was accelerated by the events of the last week. Seeing the situation of the people of Ukraine, I was well aware that there are millions of their pets who need support! So every morning from the first day of the war, I looked for ways to help the pets. In the first week, we have already provided almost 100 tonnes of dry feed as support for Ukrainian pets, but we realize that this is not enough, we need to go further and think about other solutions on how to really help pets. We need your help so that we can contribute more, so that we can continue to provide support, and today you can become heroes or stand aside. I invite you to contribute, albeit in small parts, so that we can continue to organize support for Ukrainian pets!"

Tauras – a man, a father, a husband, a successful businessman for more than 25 years, together with his wife Janita, successfully developing a business in the field of pet care:

"Probably, like many, when we ask ourselves – what can we do best and most effectively that could be helpful and we realize that we can be most useful in the segment where we have been working for over 30 years.

We have succeeded in providing a series of successful actions, providing people and animals with the most necessary help – in addition to a wide range of essentials, we have already transported over 100,000 kg of feed, which will reach those who are in critical need today through mobilized volunteer teams.

Now we are ready to help again.

We get a lot of questions from cynologists and pet lovers from all over the world – how and in what ways they can contribute.

As a result, we have set up our own family support and charity fund, whose main and only priority at this difficult time is to help animals."

WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE:

SUPPORT FOR UKRAINIAN PETS:

Today we loaded three full trucks – 60 tons of dry food for Ukrainian pets. This support will be met in Ukraine by volunteers who will distribute it internally. The feed will be delivered to two Ukrainian cities, Lviv and Uzhhorod, from where volunteers will distribute support to the country's hotspots.

The news reached us that our support, which we handed over to Waimea Logistics in Poland, had reached the city of Lviv safely. In this shipment, Ukrainian pet owners found Nature’s Protection feed, blankets, rugs, tents, bowls and bags. It is good to see that the aid has safely reached the Ukrainian pets who need it most. We thank Waimea Logistics for its prompt work and excellent logistics.

It is good to contribute to the support organized by "Lietuva-gyvūnams" for the Ukrainian pets affected by the war, and we hope that our support will ensure that even in such difficult conditions the needs of Ukrainian pets will be met.

Our distributors in Poland, Hungary and Ukraine join in and deliver loads of feed and essentials to pets, Ukrainian cynologists, for volunteers to distribute this support to shelters, breeders and people with pets.

The KIKA store chain has started providing assistance to Ukrainian families with pets who have suffered from the war and have come to Lithuania. Upon arrival at any KIKA physical store and upon presentation of a document of Ukrainian citizenship, each Ukrainian citizen (or their representative) affected by the war has free access to a basket of essential pet items containing Nature’s Protection food for dogs or cats and (if they own a cat) cat litter. To date, we have already distributed 47 baskets.

KIKA Group has donated more than 1000 kg of super premium Nature’s Protection dry dog ​​and cat food; nearly 300 transportation bags and boxes to help with a safe pet transportation and nearly 1,300 units of Misoko disposable pads to ensure a hygienic environment.
