Category 5 storm Hurricane Maria is following the same destructive path across the Caribbean as Hurricane Irma. We're still protecting vulnerable animals affected by Irma, but fear they'll be in even more danger after this second storm strikes.
In the wake of Hurricane Irma, the situation for animals on the tiny Caribbean island of Barbuda is dire. We’re working with local vets and organisations in the meantime, as we urgently try to get there
All flights to Antigua are currently cancelled, but our disaster response team hopes to be able to fly there tomorrow (Sunday September 10). While in transit, we're working with local veterinarians and animal welfare groups, to help take action on the ground in several locations
Our vets are providing emergency treatment to help save thousands of stray dogs’ lives and prevent rabies from spreading, working closely with the National Livestock Animal Welfare and Rabies Control Task Force (NLAWRCT)
