Join with World Animal Protection and help over 270,000 animals in need in Nepal

What’s happening?

This year in April and then again in May, major earthquakes rocked Nepal causing much death and destruction. The earthquakes in Nepal didn’t just affect the people living there – many of the animals were left in need of urgent medical care. In some of the worst hit areas of Nepal, 95% of local families own animals and rely on them for their personal income. After the earthquakes, the animals have been left injured, open to disease and without shelter. The livelihoods of these people and their animals are at stake.

Animals in Nepal are vulnerable to the extreme weather conditions of Nepal, and with most shelters destroyed or damaged by the earthquakes, this has been a pressing need for the animals. The stress has also caused many of the animals to refuse the damaged and rebuilt shelters, and has had a severe impact on milk production in cows, buffalos and goats.

World Animal Protection’s efforts

World Animal Protection’s disaster response team is on the ground in Nepal, working with local vets and communities to assess the needs and deliver much-needed emergency treatment to animals in Nepal. World Animal Protection takes our donations and uses them to protect as many animals as they can. They carry out comprehensive assessments alongside the emergency treatment of the animals, to ensure that the funds are used effectively.

“Thanks to your donations we can provide the materials for the construction of 1,400 brand new shelters in the worst hit areas. Over 8,000 animals will benefit immediately and an estimated 250,000 will come to benefit from the shelters over the next 7 years.” – World Animal Protection
