IFAW helping dogs and livestock after massive Mexican floods
“The coordination with local authorities and other groups has been fundamental for the instrumentation of the emergency program. In particular the support received from the Government of the State of Tabasco, the Pro-Animal Committee, the Veterinary School of Tabasco, the Association for the Protection of Animals of Tabasco (APAT), the Best Friends organization, the Luca Foundation, and the coalition of the Haghenbeck Foundation, World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), Association for the Protection of Animals (ASPA), International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH), Donkey Sanctuary of Mexico, and the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM),” said Beatriz Bugeda, Director for Latin America.
“Mobile clinics have been a key instrument to assist the needs expressed by the community, who request medical attention for their animals that haven’t been evacuated,” comments Horacio Chavira, one of the Coordinators of the Coalition.
