Social project Don’t Buy, Take Away from the Shelter

Kyiv Smart City initiative take an active social position according to help homeless animals to find a new family. This year, we launched the social campaign Don’t Buy, Take Away from the Shelter. This campaign started in order to popularize the subject of animal adoption among the public. We seek for loving families for cats and dogs. More than 2 million people can see our social posters in the metropolitan and around the city. Thanks to promotion, Kyiv citizens already sheltered almost 500 homeless dogs and cats.


This project was created thanks to the cooperation between Kyiv Smart City Kyiv initiative and Clinic of Veterinary Medicine. Thanks to the joint efforts we have found new homes for 196 dogs and 264 cats.


Homeless animals are part of the city’s ecosystem. Information and analytical system the Register of Pets was created to count homeless animals in Kyiv. This service provides the ability to collect, analyze and visualize all the data in one database.


The well-known Ukrainian celebrities have already joined the social project. Among our partners are fashion-photographer Sonia Plakidyuk, model and singer Daria Astafyeva, artist-showman Richard Horn, singer Victoria from the group NeAngeli, as well as ICTV channel TV channel Anna Afhendikova and singer INGRET.
