IFAW, with its decades of disaster response experience, is preparing to provide emergency support to local organizations and work with previously supported groups, like House of Cats Ernesto, which was the only animal sanctuary in Syria at the time.

IFAW states that search and rescue efforts continue in spite of overwhelming logistical challenges and severe winter weather. They are working with local animal rescue teams in the hardest-hit communities and, with their help, they are taking action on the following priorities:

  • Field assessments to identify unmet animal needs
  • Emergency interventions for displaced animals
  • Veterinary triage for injured animals

Our gratitude goes out to the selfless individuals and organizations like IFAW, who show up to help those in need. Join us in supporting IFAW by donating
