Feeding hungry pets in the Thailand floods
Thanks to you, our disaster response team was on the ground to assist the 3,300 dogs and cats affected by Thailand’s recent floods – one of the worst in 40 years
Many pets were taken into the evacuation centres with their owner but were left scared and hungry as the local shelters didn’t have enough food for them.
The Thai government deployed a team to provide a rescue and relief operation for farm animals but not pets.
Thankfully, you made it possible for our team to provide food for pets in the evacuation shelter in Wangluag municipality, Roi-et province for a week.
The floods were as a result of Tropical Storm PoduL-19; which caused continuous heavy rains in Northeast Thailand. This storm was then followed by a tropical cyclone which brought further flooding to the affected region.
Areas affected included Roi-et, Nan and Sakonnakhorn provinces. In the most severely impacted province of Roi-et, three water reservoirs have burst making this one of the worst floods in that province in decades.
The team also delivered a second relief pack – consisting of 2 ton of dog feed and 100kg of cat feed – to feed more animals in Ubon-Ratchathani province; which is experiencing its worst floods in 17 years.
You can support our disaster management team, so that we can continue to help animals in emergency situations worldwide.
