Thank you very much for caring about animals in Chile’s earthquake and tsunamis. Your will bring us closer to fulfilling a three-part mission:

1) FIELD RESCUE + FIRST AID: We’re in Chile right now, alongside Chilean veterinarians and Socorro Animal Chile (SACH) in the coastal towns of: Villa Futura, Santa Clara Talchuano, Calita Los Morros, Calita il Fiernillo… Our team saw 500 roaming animals in one area alone and has cleaned animals near a quake-caused spill… Each day uncovers new animals in need and we’re concerned about reaching them — to treat wounds, infection, parasites, insect infestation, worms, broken bones, etc. — in the shadow of a government discussed cull of 700,000 animals… We need ongoing financial aid for everything from latex gloves and vaccines to van transport/gas and vet clinic fees for the seriously injured or sick.

2) MASS VACCINATION & TAGGING: We hope to vaccinate disaster-affected animals and strays and identify those protected from disease with brightly colored collars or other means — to let officials recognize which animals are immune and pose no threat to human health and safety.

3) TEMPORARY CLINIC/SHELTER: Ultimately, a centrally located temp clinic/shelter is needed, as there is currently nowhere to get animals off the streets. SACH Chilean vets hope to develop a military tent style one-year clinic/shelter for housing, healing, vaccines, and spay/neuter. Kinship Circle has written a plan for this emergency shelter and priced items required to maintain it. We would need over $700,000 for a site equipped with adequate surgical, diagnostic and treatment supplies, animal containment and care…and a project manager to oversee volunteer staff.

Your support for the Animal Relief Chile project is deeply appreciated. It is how we can get the dazed puppy from the middle of an intersection to a vet clinic. It is how we can feed the hungry, decontaminate the oil-covered…and give as many animals as possible a second chance.

Please help us spread the word…
