Animal rescues in Lebanon and India: WSPA funds will allow BETA to move dogs to a new, safer location

Shelter bombed in Lebanon

WSPA has released funds to assist an animal shelter that was partially destroyed by a missile during the conflict in Lebanon. The shelter is run by WSPA member society Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (BETA) and cares for over 200 dogs and cats.

WSPA funding will allow BETA to provide veterinary care and food for the animals and temporarily re-home dogs left without shelter because of the missile strike. WSPA will also continue to support BETA and other member societies working to help animals in Lebanon.

Flooding in India affects animals

WSPA has also provided funding to help animal victims of the recent floods in the east India state of Orissa. Over 20,000 animals were left stranded or in need of veterinary care and food after unexpected heavy rains and landslides led to flash flooding throughout the region.WSPA is supporting its member society the Visakha Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Animals (VSPCA), who has already aided thousands of animals. More funding is needed to reach the animals who are still in need of assistance.
