Help protect the forgotten victims
Together, we’re giving animals lifesaving emergency vet care
When disasters strike, animals suffer injury, neglect, starvation and disease – and, sadly, many die.
Imagine the terror both you and your animal would feel if a natural disaster struck your home. Now imagine the agony of having no choice but to leave your beloved animal behind.
Unfortunately, this is a sad reality for many affected by catastrophic disasters. A reality that, together, we can help prevent. In 53 years, we have helped more than 70 million animals in over 250 disaster responses.
In 2017 alone, we helped more than 600,000 animals affected by disasters such as floods, droughts, bushfires and tropical cyclones, across 16 countries.
Thanks to supporters like you, World Animal Protection helped in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria – the strongest Atlantic hurricanes in history – which wreaked destruction in the Caribbean.
Animals urgently needed veterinary care, food, water and shelter before they succumbed to injuries, disease and starvation. Without help, they would have perished – lonely, traumatised and scared. One year after the devastation, we have installed water reservoirs and a hurricane-resistant animal shelter in Barbuda.
You can help local communities prepare for the worst and be with vulnerable animals on the ground to prevent them from suffering when disaster strikes.
We don’t ever 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.
