WATCH: Animal rescuers share experiences responding to Chile floods

Témoignage de l’équipe d’intervention après les inondations au Chili

This month I joined IFAW’s efforts to provide relief for thousands of animals stricken by the historic floods and mudslides in Northern Chile.

Tragically, many animals were caught by the flood and died.

But others are still with their families and they are for the most part able to feed them because dog and cat food is readily available at the moment.
