The earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday April 25 left a trail of devastation. Apart from hundreds of thousands of people, countless animals were affected too. Animal Nepal launched an Emergency Appeal to respond to the crisis through donation and volunteer appeal. We even organized various workshops and launched major protocols in the treatment of livestock with the help of world vets volunteers. Reaching out to the forgotten victims of the earthquake, Animal Nepal in the wake of the disaster treated more than 400 animals. Three veterinary teams visited Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Dhading, Sindhupalchowk, Nuwakot and Rasuwa to help farm and pet animals. They witnessed the loss of farmers as their lives are fully dependent on their animals who have always been their main source of income. Animal Nepal recently launched it’s interim report on Animal Nepal Earthquake Relief for Animals which includes the detail of our relief program. The full report can be downloaded here.
Animal Nepal soon will be conducting a Vaccination and Animal Birth control camp at affected villages of Lalitpur. Animal Nepal would like to thank all supporters and donors including Animal Aid Abroad, Brigitte Bardot Foundation, Donkey Sanctuary UK, Embark, Greater Good, Help Animals India, Lush, Mayhew Animal Home, One Voice, Robin Hood, Serve and Share, World Vets and all individuals who helped us to reach out as many animals as possible. Even though some of our staff members lost their homes they are committed to helping human and animal victims which would never have been possible without your support. We would also like to thank countless individuals from US, Canada, Australia and Europe for their contribution towards our relief program.
We would also like to thank our dedicated volunteers who helped and assisted us throughout our relief program and made it happen. Thank you all on behalf of our animals and staff members!
