Emergency Animal Rescue & Relief

Turkey has been hit by a devastating earthquake, killing thousands, and leaving thousands more with nothing—no food, no shelter, no warmth in below freezing temperatures.

This horror is also being experienced by dogs, cats, and other animals; beloved family pets that have become trapped or injured by the earth-shattering quakes. While their human families try frantically to dig them out, other animals have, sadly, forever lost their caring owners.

They have asked us if there is any way to help secure more food . If you can spare anything to help get these selfless heroes get through the next month, it would be deeply appreciated. We have been able to secure enough pet food, but the carers, like they so often do, have put their own needs last. Budgeting everything available to help animals, has left nothing to sustain themselves and do their best work.

Just $25 will fuel these rescuers through a long day.

These are the urgent needs today, but we will update as the needs on the ground rapidly change.

Please donate now to the Crisis Fund to make a direct impact for animals and animal heroes.
