The <a href="http://www.ifaw.org">International Fund for Animal Welfare</a> is sending food, supplies, and an expert team of disaster responders to help the community, their animals, and wildlife. IFAW has partnered with Jake Levenson of the Dominica Sea Turtle Conservation Organization and Shane Gero of the Dominica Sperm Whale Project, two organizations with extensive ties to the island, to complete this essential mission.</p> </div><p><a href="http://www.ifaw.org/international/news/disaster-response-team-deploys-dominica-help-island-ravaged-hurricane-maria" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Conservation Animal rescue Dogs & Cats Turtles Dogs & Cats amazon parrot cats companion animals Diaster Response dogs Fri, 20 Oct 2017 20:10:07 +0000 adintino 112782 at http://www.ifaw.org Saving rare rabbits and caring for pets in the Nama-Karoo of South Africa http://www.ifaw.org/international/news/saving-rare-rabbits-and-caring-pets-nama-karoo-south-africa <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/international/about-us/dogs-cats/christina-pretorius">Christina Pretorius</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-date field-field-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Oct 17 2017</span> </div> </div> </div> <div class="node-body"><p><img alt="" src="http://d2mlnkprj9wd81.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/wordpress/image/loxton_project_1.jpg" style="width: 610px; height: 343px;" /></p> <p>The statistics speak for themselves.
