A team of disaster response vets from World Animal Protection is preparing to deploy to Nepal, to help animals who’ve been injured or left without shelter, after a devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake hit the country on Saturday.

Though we are waiting on a final number of animals affected, Kathmandu is an urban environment, with a population of approximately 1 million, so there could be tens of thousands of animals needing help, as a result of the earthquake.

Won’t you help animals affected by disasters by donating to our disaster relief fund? 

World Animal Protection is working with the authorities to join the international effort and complement the humanitarian relief, as the extent of the animal need becomes clear.  On the front lines, our disaster relief team will provide immediate veterinary care for injured animals, run a mobile vet clinic to provide support to animals and their owners and assess the wider and longer term needs.

We truly understand the human dimensions of this catastrophe and our hearts go out to the thousands of people who lost loved ones. But animals are often the forgotten victims of disaster.  Nepal is one of Asia’s poorest countries with many families living in poverty and relying on agriculture to make ends meet. Our work protecting those animals impacted by the earthquake will also help to protect the future livelihoods of the people of Nepal. And with your donation to our disaster relief fund, we can make sure animals are always remembered.

We will share updates as we receive them. Please keep Kathmandu in your prayers.
