LET THE ANIMALS LIVE NEEDS HELP FOR ABANDONED GAZA ANIMALS
2009 — In these bad time in the world and in Israel we must not forget our
pets. Let The Animals Live, due to the situation in GAZA, is dealing with a
growing phenomena of abandoned dogs left behind by their families. We
collect them the put them in private shelters as well as our own. Also many
dogs are being abandoned in the streets by owners who can not take care of
them any more due to the rough financial situation.

To help Let The Animals Live raise awareness and donations… Geler-Nasis
advertising agency produced voluntarily a short video telling the need of
our organization:  http://www.letlive.org.il/english/article.php?id=193

Please help in any way you can by donating now. Eti Altman, spokesperson and
cofounder Let The Animals Live Israel, 972-50-5358421, 972-3-6241776

2005 — LT: Many settlers left their homes without taking pets… Israeli
animal activists scoured empty settlements in the Gaza Strip to find
abandoned…dogs, cats, chickens, goats, geese, parakeets, ducks, turtles,
an iguana… http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4181284.stm

2. Israel To Fund Medical Care For War-Injured Animals

SOURCE: 1/6/09, Ynetnews
FULL STORY: State to help fund treatment of pets hurt by rockets
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3651173,00.html

Last week a Qassam rocket hit a house in Sderot and killed the family’s dog,
which was at the building’s yard during the attack. The dog was rushed to
the veterinarian for treatment, but died due to severe shrapnel injuries and
massive loss of blood.

Following this incident and in light of the fact that like their human
owners, pets in Israel’s south are also under the constant rocket threat,
the Agriculture Ministry has decided it would help pay for the medical care
of dogs and cats injured by rocket fire from Gaza.

“One of the main problems arising from the treatment of wounded animals is
that the tax authorities do not consider pets as property, and therefore
owners are not compensated for medical treatment of the animal,” said Dganit
Ben-Dov, DVM, the Veterinary Services official in charge of enforcing the
Animal Protection Law.

“This is the aspect we wish to rectify, since treatment to a wounded animal
could cost thousands of shekels,” she added. According to Ben-Dov, the
ministry will also consider funding treatment of street cats and dogs…

based at Moshav Gan Yoshiyya, near the towns of Netanya and Hadera in Israel.

Many have asked whether Lucy, her workers and the donkeys are safe during
the present troubles in Gaza. We would like to reassure you all that the
sanctuary is a considerable distance from Gaza and so everyone is at present
unaffected. Of course, our hearts go out to all the people and animals
affected and we pray that a peaceful solution will soon be reached.

In the meantime, Lucy and the team continue to reach out to donkeys, mules
and horses in Israel and the West Bank and your help is still very much
needed. To make a donation, visit our home page. Thank you for your support.
