World Vets responders have been working with local volunteers to rescue and move dogs to safer locations where they can be fed and treated by veterinarians. So far they have rescued over 1000 dogs. With no end in sight for the flooding the problem is becoming more dire as dog food and veterinary medical supply inventories run low.
World Vets is deploying a second team of veterinarians in late November to continue the operation. This team will be bringing much needed veterinary medical supplies to continue with the treatment of hurt or sick animals. All teams are made up of practicing veterinarians and qualified veterinary first response personel. Donations to support this effort can be made at http://www.worldvets.org.
