IFAW is rushing aid to the animal survivors of the devastating floods in Pakistan, which some officials are calling the worst in the county’s history. We are reaching out to groups and individuals that are helping animals in crisis during this disaster.

We are beginning the process of granting monies for distribution to local agencies, including the RAVI Foundation, to help feed animals, to support assessment operations in Punjab province, and to contact relevant authorities on behalf of IFAW.

Official requests for support have come in from the provincial level and we expect a federal-level request in the next few days. Stay tuned for updates on this incident as we continue our work to provide relief to the animal victims of this disaster.

It's wonderful that people care about animals in the midst of such suffering. I really wanted to know if the snow leopard has survived this tragedy - have there been any sightings survivers?

Few reporters mention the toll these disasters take on animals, and they are usually left behind as unimportant. I'm so grateful for the organizations such as IFAW that go to their aid.

News agencies only report the human death toll when tragedy strikes but never the animal death toll. It's so sad that animals are so neglected when they are ones in need of so much help!!
