IFAW Haiti: ARCH Teams Treat Dozens of Animals, Many More Need Help
This post was filed by the International Fund for Animal Welfare's (IFAW) J.C. Bouvier who is on the ground in Port-au-Prince working with the Animal Rescue Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) teams including the Dominican Republic Based Sodopreca, who are the focus of this post.
Yesterday the ARCH team continued its work on the ground in Port-au- Prince, Haiti, with the Dominican Sodopreca team treating 38 animals yesterday alone...treatments for animals in these circumstances include vaccinations, de-worming and nutritional boosts. Several of the dogs treated yesterday were puppies found living with families in the city...and the families were very receptive to the Sodopreca teams efforts...after meetings with Haitian officials in the morning, the ARCH team will begin to develop a more in-depth plan for the aid of Haiti's animals.
A highlight of the trip so far for the Sodopreca team was the meeting of the one and only Julio Iglesias at the Dominican Embassy. The guys say he was very interested in the work of the ARCH team and overall a very nice guy...
While the city is beginning to return to a quasi normal state of function, there are still many animals who need our help...for more information, please visit www.ifaw.org
