Social initiatives

LET'S MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE TOGETHER!

We are inspired by a love for our four-legged friends and meeting their needs, and we dream of the harmonious coexistence between people and their family pets. That’s why we have chosen this as a key direction for our company. Since 2013, we have been implementing projects that teach the humane treatment of animals. We also support shelters in different regions, promote professional veterinary medicine, and are developing infrastructure for the local community (that is built around our products).

Our initiatives

SAVE PETS OF UKRAINE

A nationwide initiative is underway to help pets affected by the Russian-Ukraine war. Pet food, medicines, and ammunition are currently being sent to both the war zones and the liberated areas. We are providing tons of our own products for the Save Pets of Ukraine initiative, and also receiving humanitarian and financial aid from abroad. Join us!

U-HEARTS

Founded in early 2022, U-Hearts was launched to increase Kormotech’s multi-year effort to improve pet life conditions in Eastern Europe. Now U-Hearts is uniquely positioned to help pets in Ukraine, with efficient and transparent cost management. To support our efforts, we invite you to donate to U-Hearts Foundation.

PAWS IN THE OFFICE

Kormotech offices are dog-friendly, and we encourage and help Ukrainian companies to become dog-friendly too. This initiative is aimed at developing dog-friendly infrastructures in Ukraine. We want our four-legged friends to acquire the status of “companion” in Ukrainian society. 9100: A VET CARE HOTLINEThis is a cost-free veterinary support service for pet owners. The service is available by phone by dialing 9100, and online via messenger apps. Once contacted, veterinarians give some initial advice and — if necessary — help the cat and dog owner to choose a clinic (and the right specialist). It is the first initiative of its kind in Eastern Europe. «CLUB 4 PAWS»
