The Humane Society of the United States is hosting the National Conference on Animals in Disaster in Sacramento starting Tuesday. Among the attendees are animal response specialists, emergency managers, vets and volunteers. Sergio Vasquez, our Veterinary Response Officer for Latin America shares his experience responding to animal needs in Nepal after two major earthquakes.
The high levels of stress make it difficult for people to care for themselves or their animals, we even saw some injured people who had not received any help. Stress not only affects people, it also affects animals who are producing much less than usual. This is mainly a cattle farming area and 90% of the people depend on their animals for their livelihood.
The World Animal Protection team is working hard to bring help and hope to the thousands of animals affected by this terrible emergency.
Though Nepal is far away for most of you, take a moment to think of the people and animals who need your help. The process of rebuilding for some is underway, while others are living under tarps, their former homes and animal shelters completely destroyed.

We walked up steep pathways that took us through the wrecked sites – once homes and animal shelters.
Uday pictured in the background, takes notes on an animal's health condition and what medications are required while another volunteer looks on. I mostly hear the sounds of stones being discarded and metal sheets pried loose from the piles of rocks that were once homes as people begin to rebuild their houses and animal shelters. Our disaster response team and Nepali veterinarians who are volunteering their time, is here to help the animals. Our team arrived yesterday and have immediately begun a rapid relief operation to come to the aid of animals and the people who need them. We are working with the government to determine animal needs and numbers but these remain unknown as the quake, in addition to damaging the capital and surrounding cities, has destroyed communities in the mountainous regions that ring the Kathmandu valley.
This is my first time back to Nepal since I lived there fifteen years ago and seeing what was once home reduced to rubble and so much suffering affects me like no other disaster.

We are here to help and save animals' lives, protect and maintain their health and stave off starvation. Two weeks after Cyclone Pam tore through Vanuatu, we’ve completed our initial assessment of the needs of animals affected by the disaster and we’ve been delivering urgent aid to those that are suffering. But for the surviving animals, it’s the growing food shortage that poses the biggest threat across multiple islands reeling in the wake of the worst disaster of this kind in decades. In Lokopui village on the northern tip of Epi Island, we met with church leader David Sam, 35 who told us not since 1951 had they experienced a disaster even approaching this scale of destruction. Protecting animals in the wake of a disaster is critical to safeguard their welfare and help communities rebuild. Some of the animals we've met so far on our disaster response operation following Cyclone Pam have really touched our hearts. Together with Doctor O'Connor, who graciously donated her time to help, our response team has treated many hungry and ill animals on Efate. Now with two more World Animal Protection vets who've just arrived from our Bangkok office, we are headed for Epi in the Shepherd Islands.
We believe a safe food supply is reliant on the efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to achieve optimal health for people, animals, and the environment.
Thanks to your support, we can be there to ease their suffering and take care of their animals. No sooner had we reached the village than people started asking to help their traumatized animals describing the impacts of earthquake on their livestock. Our team walked all day long to treat as much animals as we could and gave them the necessary medicines.I am a student of veterinary medicines and volunteered with World Animal Protection’s response team. People and animals are living in makeshift shelters and what were once beautiful mountain villages are now grim sites full of rubble. People and animals lie buried where they fell as stone and brick shelters collapsed on top of them. Over the next few days we will be treating animals in the worst affected areas and getting a picture of their needs and how to help them.
I cannot promise Pam will live but I can promise you a very dedicated team of people who care for animals did our best to give her a chance both through immediate care and veterinary treatment as well as educating her owner on how to help her.
With no shelter big enough to accommodate all the animals, they were set free from their tethers and pens to try and survive the night on their own.

The cyclone’s destructive winds have wiped out the crops the people and animals of Lokopui rely on to survive.
Many animals are staying alive only by eating the remaining coconuts in Lokopui and rural communities across dozens of islands. 80 percent of families in Vanuatu rely on their animals and crops for food and their livelihoods. World Animal Protection is helping protect animals in Vanuatu by delivering emergency feed for animals that are in desperate need. Aid for people was only just beginning to arrive and we were the only animal welfare organisation operating in the area.
Our rapid assessment is now complete and we’re formulating what to do to safeguard the future of the most vulnerable in the aftermath of this terrible disaster. He is passionate about animal welfare and improving the lives of people and animals in Nepal. We visited a woman and her buffalo, but the poor animal was so shaken up that when we tried to check him it kicked the lady and we had to rush her to the nearest clinic.
It struck me that for people around the world, sometimes our greatest comfort is our animals.
My heart breaks for the hard working farmers, their innocent children and animals and I watch the news constantly, hopeful for some good news. We’re helping as many animals as we can and only because of you can we help them survive the aftermath of this disaster. Critics are quick to question whether a practice of injecting parts of humans in animals carries more benefits than risks.Even now it is apparent that growing human organs inside of animals is not science fiction, but pure reality. If that can be said to be true, then the human organ that grows inside of the pig cannot be perceived as 100 percent human after it developed inside of another animal.
Additionally, no punishment is set in place should the living thing become a walking disaster.It is believed that genetically tweaking animals to grow human parts is just another way of corrupting nature.
