Hurricane Maria and Irma: Donate to help protect animals
The strongest Atlantic Hurricanes in history have devastated islands in the Caribbean, leaving animals desperate and vulnerable. It's a race against time to make sure they're not forgotten.
As you read this, World Animal Protection’s emergency teams are on the ground treating and caring for injured animals caught in the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Irma and now Maria. We need as much help as we can get to help as many animals as we can.
We must act now. Your donation will help us:
Treat wounded and sick animals by providing emergency vet kits, which include dressings, medications and vaccines.
Sustain the animal survivors of this disaster with life-saving feed.
Protect livestock by providing vital nutrients and shelter.
Please help us treat traumatised animals caught in this horrific disaster. Your donation could help transform the lives of animals across the Caribbean in so many other places animals need our help across the world.
Our Head of Disaster Communications, reporting from Barbuda Scott Cantin has said:
“Dogs stay by ruined houses, waiting for a meal or attention that won't come. Some are friendly, while others bark and snap as we pass. Sheep, goats, horses and feral donkeys are everywhere."
Steven Clegg from our disaster response team gives water to two dogs left behind after the evacuation from Barbuda.
Funds raised for this appeal will support animals affected by this disaster. If the funds raised exceed World Animal Protection’s needs, your gift will go to our on-going disaster management work.
Thank you so much for however you choose to help today.
