Cyclone Batters Shelter in India - Help Animals Now

Help rebuild the VSPCA's shelters after a devastating cyclone struck.
In October 2014, a devastating cyclone named HudHud slammed into the coastline of Visakhapatnam, India causing devastating damage to everything in its path. 100,000 people lost their homes, including the animals at the VSPCA shelters (Visakha Society for Protection and Care of Animals). The damage done to the shelter facilities has significantly reduced the VSPCA's capacity to care for homeless animals. Roof, kennel, and other structural repairs need to be made as soon as possible.
Thankfully, the local community has rallied around the shelter and is eager to help rebuild it in order to once again provide a home for lost and abandoned animals. Volunteers are standing by and ready to work, but funds must raised to cover the cost of supplies. VSPCA has already done tremendous work in India, caring for thousands of animals. Providing supplies for the workers means that 2,000 animals will continue to receive care and animals in years to come will have a place to call home.
Help make this happen by providing supplies and supporting the community in rebuilding their local shelters!
For more than a decade, the VSPCA (Visakha Society For Protection and Care of Animals) has been working in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh to aid suffering animals, prevent cruelty and neglect, protect wildlife, and educate about animal issues. VSPCA conducts extensive spay/neuter campaigns to curb dog and cat overpopulation, provides rescue and ambulance services, helps rescue animals after natural disasters such as the 2004 tsunami, and provides shelter to over a thousand animals in need, including more than 600 cows and buffalo.
