Andrij the Orphaned Ukrainian Rescue Dog” : Chapter 19: Anastassia Yalanskaya Memorial Dog Shelter

On the way home to Toronto Bob told Reggie and I a very sad story about a 26-year-old lady in the Ukraine called Anastassia Yalanskaya who was killed by the Russian invaders when she was delivering dog food to a rescue centre . A sweet innocent girl helping us dogs dislocated by these filthy bastard murderers. The Russians slaughter all Ukrainians both human and animals. It made Reggie and I so angry we growled and had I been able to speak I would have asked Bob to take me home to the Ukraine to avenge the honour of this brave girl but I know I have an important job here in Canada.

Bob said that he had purchased a large abandoned factory in Toronto which he was converting to a pet shelter for abandoned and orphaned Ukrainian pets. Thousands of pets have died and some 70,000 are requiring homes. Bob will name the shelter the Yalanskaya Memorial Dog Shelter to house 2,300 Ukrainian pets until they can be adopted. I will be a big fundraiser for this centre and what an honour! The day after we arrive back in Toronto there will be three talk shows I will appear on. The Grand Ayatollah of Iran, President Biden and the Pope have given generous personal donations. I have been asked to make appearances in the United States to promote the funding of similar centres. The need this terrible blitzkrieg has created is endless.
