Vet Jakub Kotowicz, based in Przemysl, Poland on the Ukraine /Poland border with the cats, dogs and even a goat that he and his team rescued from inside war torn Ukraine. See SWNS story SWSCvet. A hero vet is crossing into Ukraine to rescue animals trapped in the conflict - including a dog with a bullet lodged in her spine and a pygmy goat with diseased legs. Jakub Kotowicz, 32, made a trip into the warzone on Tuesday afternoon as part of a convoy from Przemyśl on the Polish border. In the past fortnight he has rescued around 200 cats and 60 dogs from Lviv, in three convoys. Rescued pets recovering from the trauma included a Sphinx cat dressed in a knitted jumper who loves to cuddle, and a Chihuahua puppy rescued with it's mum. Jakub plans to keep a pygmy goat kid, named Sasha, which was rescued from Lviv aged two months. Sasha shares a soft bed with the Chihuahuas and will be kept as a pet by the vets at the ADA Foundation, an animal rescue charity Jakub founded aged 17 years old. It also has a private veterinary clinic, but the non-profit organisation is dependent on donations. So far £60,000 has been raised by Nick Tadd, 55, who is in Poland indefinitely after leaving Guildford, Surrey, to help with animal rescue missions.
