You may well have been watching the terrible scenes from Beirut after the explosions there and for many animal lovers, our first reaction will be – were any animals killed or injured?
The International Fund for Animal Welfare partner with Animals Lebanon. Their offices were 2.5 miles from the blast – and though there office was in tatters, the team was safe and they have been giving the cats there veterinary treatment.
They’ve set up a dispatch system for owners to report lost pets.
They’ve gone out to help dogs and cats who were buried in debris or roaming the streets searching for their families. Many pets have been injured and traumatised by this terrible event but many lost pets have been reunited with their families already Veterinary care is being given.
