never giving up: syrian sanctuary receives support
Throughout our 50 years of work, IFAW has ensured that we respond to calls of rescue and cases where animals are suffering beyond borders, no matter where the call for help is coming from. Recently, a sanctuary in Syria reached out to us, struggling to care for the animals they have due to a shortage in supplies including food, vaccines and medical equipment.
The House of Cats Ernesto started with one man feeding cats in the middle of civil war in Syria, and is now the only cat and animal sanctuary in the country since the original sanctuary was destroyed. It is home to more than 800 cats, 25 dogs, vervet monkeys, horses, donkeys, wild birds and domestic farm animals left behind or affected by the war.
IFAW responded to House of Cats Ernesto’s call for help to support them by purchasing the supplies they need such as antibiotics, parasite treatments, antiseptic, vaccines, dry food and PPE equipment for staff.
IFAW is proud to assist House of Cats Ernesto in their unwavering efforts to care for animals in an unpredictable climate. We thank the staff on the ground caring for these animals.
