For those of you that are interested in helping the animal victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in the Philippines, I have compiled a list of organizations that are accepting donations in cash and in kind. Many of these organizations are providing help to BOTH human and animal victims of the typhoon. This list will be continuously updated. If you have information about other organizations you may post them in the comments section.
HOW TO HELP and WHERE TO DONATE:
INTERNATIONAL FUND FOR ANIMAL WELFARE
“Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms ever to hit land, was devastating for both companion animals and wildlife. IFAW’s Disaster Response team is working with our local partners to rescue and protect animals affected by the typhoon.With your generous donation, you can help rescue the typhoon’s animal victims.
We stand in support of our humanitarian partners recognizing that rescue efforts of survivors are the top priority.They in turn are supportive of us as they too are aware of the fact that many residents were not going to leave their animals behind, despite the warnings of the storm.”
WORLD SOCIETY FOR THE PROTECTION OF ANIMALS
Thousands of animals have likely been affected by the devastating typhoon in the Philippines. Our Disaster Management team has arrived. Our first priority is to provide basic aid to the animals most urgently in need.
Here’s how your urgent gift to WSPA’s Animal Disaster Fund could help:
* Could buy emergency feed to keep animals in need healthy
* Could pay for special shelter materials to protect animals
* Could help fund a WSPA disaster vet to provide urgent medical care to animals

HONG KONG VETERINARIANS and other vets outside the Philippines

An official call for action! Hong Kong veterinarians and animal lovers, unite to provide Animal Relief to the Philippines. Who we are: Hong Kong veterinary specialist Alane Cahalane and the Philippine Animal Hospital Association (PAHA)
What we’re doing: Working directly with fellow veterinarians in the Philippines to provide support and aid to dogs and cats affected by Super Typhoon Haiyan. Distribution and aid will start in regions that are less affected by the storm and are therefore safely accessible. Why? With any natural disaster, safety and concern for people must come first. Although there may be a reluctance to think of the welfare of animals when so many people are without food and water, the Philippines has a large population of stray dogs and cats, as well as pets, that may have been affected by the storm. These animals, if hungry, diseased, or in pain, are not only suffering in their own right, but may become a threat to the human population with aggressive behaviors or the spread of zoonotic disease. And because animals are what we know. This is an opportunity for the Hong Kong veterinary community to come together for a good cause, to support our neighbors and colleagues.
When we need help: ASAP
What we need: New (unopened) bags of pet food, bottled water, and unbreakable dog bowls.
What veterinarians can do: Set up a donation center in your clinic. We will make weekly pick-ups, or as often as needed if space is an issue. Go to your nearest donation center and donate. We’ll keep a running list of clinics with donation centers. Inform your clients of your efforts and suggest that they make whatever donation they can afford. Consider selling your pet food stock at cost for clients to donate.
What pet lovers can do: Contact us to find out where to make a donation
What if I live outside HK? Contact us for information on how to make a financial contribution, or for information on other organizations providing much-needed aid to the Philippines.
