Emergency and some links to directly send supplies
Hello dedicated and lovely people who care worldwide!
This is a special appeal for the animals of the large southern Indian state of Kerala for #keralafloods. Kerala has just seen its worst floods in nearly a century, with over 350 people having died within a fortnight, and at least 82,400 people rescued.
350,000 people are now in relief camps and help will be needed for a long while when the spotlight fades and others leave – right when it is most needed, as this is when disease sets in and food runs out. For rehoming pets, all sorts of help is needed now and in future! It has also affected the state of Karnataka (Coorg).
Fortunately our one partner shelter in Kerala itself (People for Animals, Kollam) reports their shelter is on high ground and they are OK.
So many brave individual activists and groups have been helping rescue animals and now we can send donations to our partners below – please help us send them donations if you can.
Three of our dedicated partner charities are sending in their resources as they can to help. The waters are receding and this is when the real work begins!
1. CUPA (Compassion Unlimited Plus Action)
CUPA is raising funds for the Animals in distress in flood ravaged Kerala and Coorg. All proceeds will be spent on green fodder, medications and packaged food.
2. Blue Cross of India
Blue Cross of India has rented vehicles to take many different kinds of medicines, hundreds of bags of cattle and other animal feed, plus a half ton of dog food! They will be helping many thousands of animals.
Blue Cross of India also has an Amazon.in link – shop and donate yourself here from anywhere in the world! (Remember: 68 Indian Rupees to the dollar, and 80 Indian Rupees to the Euro!)
3. RESQ Charitabel Trust from Pune
From Neha Panchamiya, Pune, RESQ Charitable Trust:
"We have sent three vehicles including a large animal ambulance, trained rescue and medical staff, animal feed and emergency medical care supplies enough to treat over 300 animals."
"Our six-member team will coordinate with local animal rescuers to save and provide emergency medical treatment to injured and sick animals. We'll start with Ernakulam and move further."
Animals Matter to Me, Mumbai
And last but not least here is another option to send supplies through to Animals Matter to Me, Mumbai. All supplies will be sent to vets working on the ground in Kerala. Donate to them via the new service “Donate Kart” and you can choose to provide medicine, food, and care for Kerala's animals via their excellent volunteers from anywhere in the world. (Remember: 68 Indian Rupees to the dollar, and 80 Indian Rupees to the Euro!)
With love from Help Animals India, and deepest appreciation from all of the animals and the people who serve them – thank you and many wishes for your success in your worthy activities to bring happiness for all!
