Don’t forget the animals

Typhoon Haiyan is the second-deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 3,982 people in that country alone. The cyclone caused catastrophic destruction in the central Philippines, particularly on Samar Island and Leyte. According to UN officials, about 11 million people have been affected and many have been left homeless.

 People were not prepared for the magnitude of a typhoon that has devastated parts of the Philippines.

The Philippines and international armed forces and aid agencies are struggling to get help to devastated areas due to the extent of the destruction, which has left 4 million people displaced.


WSPA works for the animals

 While the world rallies to support the victims of this disaster, WSPA is on the ground helping the forgotten victims – the animals. 

Thousands of animals have likely been affected by the devastating typhoon in the Philippines. WSPA staff is on the ground working with local governments to meet the needs of animals and their owners and to give help where it is needed most.

Animals are an important part of the family in the Philippines and are vital to the survival of urban and rural communities. Without your urgent help, local families might lose the animals that they rely on for their livelihood and survival. By protecting animals suffering as a result of Typhoon Haiyan, you’re also helping an entire society to recover and heal.

How can we help?

 There is an inextricable link between animals and human welfare. The shocking number of human casualties estimated makes us well aware that animals will desperately need our help. 

 By making your urgent donation today, you will not only be helping these animals, you’ll also be helping the communities who care for them and rely on them for their survival.

Funds raised for this appeal will support animals affected by this disaster. If the funds raised exceed WSPA’s needs, your gift will go to our general Disaster Management work.
