Help protect Hurricane Irma’s forgotten victims

Together, we’re giving animals lifesaving emergency vet care

When disasters strike, animals suffer injury, neglect, starvation and disease – and many sadly die.

Hurricane Irma has left Caribbean nations devastated and their people displaced. Animals caught in the destruction need emergency care now.

Now Hurricane Maria – another massive category 5 hurricane – is following the same destructive path. We fear animals will be in even more danger after this second storm strikes.

Please donate today to help save the lives of animals affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

In 2017 we have already seen too many animals suffer and succumb to disasters. But no Hurricane has wreaked destruction on the same scale as Hurricane Irma. The Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda estimated more than 95% of the island’s structures were damaged or destroyed.

Animals urgently need veterinary care, food, water and shelter before they succumb to injuries, disease and starvation. Without your help, they could perish – lonely, traumatised and scared.

World Animal Protection has saved over seven million animals in 250 disasters since 1964. We have a history of saving animals in the Caribbean region when emergencies strike.

In 2016, we responded to Hurricane Matthew in Haiti, providing vaccinations to protect animals from disease and suffering. We also provided emergency vet care and food for pets and farm animals after Hurricane Otto in Costa Rica.

We don’t know when a disaster will strike. But our dedicated teams are ready to go at a moment’s notice and will work around the clock in a disaster zone. They just need the funds to make this possible.

Your support could help save the lives of countless animals suffering in the wake of the devastating Hurricane Irma.

Please donate today.
