Animals Asia would like to express our sincerest of condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Haiti earthquake. Our thoughts are with the people of Haiti in the aftermath of this devastating disaster.
As well as the many hundreds of thousands of human victims there will also be many animal victims.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) in collaboration with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) have developed the "Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti" and launched an emergency relief mission for the animal victims of this terrible tragedy. IFAW and WSPA are deploying teams to the area to begin treating critically injured animals, vaccinating them against deadly diseases like rabies and leptospirosis, and distributing food, water, and basic medical care.
