Cyclone Batters Shelter in India - Help Animals Now
Cyclone Nilam passed through southeastern India and dumped a month's worth of rainfall over a few short days. Without respite, the rains continue in the aftermath of the cyclone, exacerbating floods and hampering recovery and rescue efforts. The punishing winds and heavy rains have claimed lives, flooded homes, and destroyed vast tracts of farmland. During such disasters, it becomes easy to overlook the animals affected.
VSPCA operates an animal hospital and rescue centers in the region, providing sanctuary for over a thousand rescued animals. They also run an extensive outreach campaign, providing basic healthcare and emergency services for many more. In times of crisis, the area relies heavily on the VSPCA, stressing the organization's already limited resources.
Flooded sanctuaries mean livestock cannot lie down to sleep. Torrential rains restrict food supplies. High winds hinder outreach efforts. Dry food, medication, and vaccines to prevent communicable diseases must be procured.
But you can help. Your donation funds VSPCA operations during this crisis, ensuring the region's animals receive the appropriate emergency response.
