Help Victims Of Floods And Mudslides In Brazil

Your donation to IDA's Animal Disaster Relief Fund will help us continue to respond to this and other disasters 

wounded dog recoveringWith thirty years combined disaster relief experience, In Defense of Animals (IDA) and Kinship Circle have formed a partnership to respond to Brazil’s floods and mudslides. An IDA-Kinship Circle team now in Brazil is providing search and rescue services, veterinary treatment, including spaying and neutering, and more.

Entire towns are devoured by floods and mudslides, the worst natural disaster in the country’s history. Thousands of rescued animals have found refuge in makeshift shelters. There is dire need for food, water, shelter, and veterinary-trained responders. Animals with broken bones, burns, and deep gashes are everywhere. There is growing concern about disease.

IDA-Kinship CircleNicky, a German Shepherd mix, limped into the Teresopolis shelter in Rio de Janeiro with one leg dangling, a missing toe, and an absent foot pad, wearing a collar caked in mud. Her family was swallowed up in a landslide. IDA-Kinship Circle responders Jan and Carlos Cabral of Posse Petropolis, Brazil adopted the ten-year-old, who now shadows Jan everywhere so as not to be left behind.

In an old warehouse in Teresopolis, a mountain town outside Rio de Janeiro, newly rescued animals arrive daily. There is overcrowding and shortages of medication and fluids. Temperatures rise into the nineties. The risk of Dogs tail lost to maggotsdehydration is ever-present. A dog arrives at the shelter, his tail so thick with maggots that it falls off during treatment. There are burn victims and others infested with maggots.

Not-yet-rescued cats still hide in the ruins. Puppies remain stuck in the wreckage. Horses are still waiting to be saved.

We can’t forget these animals. Please click here today to donate!

We have been asked to help set up a spay/neuter clinic and assist adoption, education, and vaccination drives. Funds are needed to support rescue, first aid, medical attention, and emergency housing for lost, sick, and wounded animals.

Please contribute as generously as you can. Without your support, our efforts in such disaster-ravaged areas as Brazil, Australia, New Orleans, Haiti, and Chile would not happen.
