NEPAL: HOW TO HELP ANIMALS AFFECTED BY THE EARTHQUAKE


The massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Nepal on April 25, 2015. The epicenter was in the Gorkha district, 50 miles from the city of Kathmandu.

Three days after, there is still little news about its impact on animals in this region. HSI said that animals at the zoo in Kathmandu are safe. However, many people are desperately trying to locate their pets and farm animals.

HSI, IFAW and WAP international disaster teams are preparing to deploy to Nepal to help animals who've been injured or left without shelter. Local animal welfare organizations are asking for our help with animal rescue efforts. The need for clean water, food, and medical care is urgent, so we must act fast!

UPDATE FROM KATHMANDU ANIMAL TREATMENT CENTRE (KAT)
Message from KAT. Rose, the Communication Officer, April 25, 2015
The good news first: All of KAT's Team and the animals are OK. Deeply shocked but alive! We must care for the wounded animals. We need the bare essentials: gauze bandages, disposable needles, antiseptic...
I ask most sincerely for your support! The KAT facility itself sustained only light damage and the animals are fine. Given the massive damage to the local infrastructure (streets are ruined, power outages are expected to continue, etc.) it will be much more difficult to care for the animals. The long-term consequences of this disaster are not yet clear and in the short term, we must expect a large number of wounded animals in dire need of care. That is why I am urgently asking for your help.

Message from KAT, April 28, 2015 
Dear KAT supporters, it's been really hard for us to communicate with everyone due to no electricity. We would like to inform that we have temporary suspend our rescue work due to the uncertain situation. Also an update on KAT, due to the frequent tremors we had, some part of the wall premises collapsed. We are doing our best to cover up the walls with everything we can to prevent the dogs from escaping. Also, we are currently facing huge problems with food & water. Thus, we are seeking for your kind donation such as dry food for the cats & dogs, water, sacks, blankets & candles. We would truly appreciate for the donation items to be dropped of at our center. Once again, we thank everyone for your kind thoughts & support.
