The war in Ukraine has separated many owners from their pets. Persik’s owner happened to be visiting family in Arkansas when the war broke out so Persik was left in the care of the owner’s cousin. The cousin managed to escape Ukraine with Persik and with the help of the Humane Society, got Persik shipped to America to reunite with his owner.

Now Persik is safe in Arkansas, which goes to show that when people cooperate, they can help spread joy and happiness to others around them. Hopefully Persik will adapt to his new country and stay safe with his owner.
