Reminder that in November, EVA and Happy Paw launched a project to help animals in shelters. More details about the project can be found below.

Everyone dreams of spending the holidays in warmth, with delicious food on the table and loved ones nearby. Animals are not much different from us in this desire.

But for homeless cats and dogs in shelters, winter holidays are incomparable to those rare happy days when the bowl is full of food, the stove warms their paws, and there is a person for walks and games.

Therefore, the EVA store chain and the Happy Paw foundation launched the "Holidays with a Tail" project, where you can create your own virtual version of a warm and festive dog and cat home and at the same time warm real animals in shelters.

On the project's website, there is an interactive fundraiser for shelter insulation, where users can:

  • choose a real cat or dog they want to warm
  • choose a style for the animal's house so that the tail can spend winter in warmth and care
  • add elements of coziness to the house: firewood, food, or a bed Each insulation option helps real animals in shelters to survive the winter in warmth, kindness, and comfort.


The goal of the initiative is to raise 1 million hryvnias for the insulation of animal shelters, specifically for new comfortable dog houses, firewood, heaters, and stoves for cooking and heating premises.

Anyone can help achieve the fundraising goal by creating an online warm home for an animal on the project's website or by making a donation at the cash register of any EVA store.

These funds will help purchase necessary items to improve the lives of homeless cats and dogs from over 30 shelters across Ukraine.

The "Holidays with a Tail" project to help homeless animals is being implemented by the EVA store chain for the fourth consecutive year. Find out how many animals in shelters were warmed last year, in 2022.
