While the fight goes on in the Ukraine-Russia war, we want to take this time to acknowledge the brave soldiers fighting for Ukraine’s freedom. To add, we would like to highlight the wonderful deeds they’re doing, especially when it comes to saving the stray and abandoned dogs and cats left in war-torn areas in the country.

Here’s a list of the most inspiring and adorable rescues by the Ukrainian Ground Forces.

1. Random Cat, Slightly Shocked

This cat was caught by one of the Ukrainian soldiers. Though she seemed scared, she’s still okay with getting a hug.

2. Young Jessie

This adorable blue-eyed dog was rescued by another Ukrainian soldier who called her Jessie. Jessi’s a young Husky saved from the Kherson conflict.
