Relief Charities

Charities responding to disaster

Disaster strikes and animal charities and anyone involved in animals will be in action lending a paw where they can.  During Hurricane Katrina, hundreds of people flew to the affected areas to help with caring for the animals affected by the flooding. 

Disaster hits, and both people and animals suffer. As we've seen, the news often focuses solely on humans with the occasional story on how animals are affected by disasters. So what help is out there for animals in such dreadful predicaments? These organisations strive to help them.

Noah's Wish This amazing US charity works to help animals in disaster areas.
