For so many in Australia and globally, coronavirus has presented many challenges that have now become a new ‘reality’. As the months go on, global borders remain shut and some communities are still living in lockdowns, so we’ve made sure that those helping animals are receiving the help they need.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have helped provide veterinary treatment and food for ‘working’ animals and animals used within tourism industries, whose owners are out of work and without income. We have fuelled feeding programs to ensure that millions of animals living on the streets were still being fed when some of the busiest city streets became deserted. And we will continue to monitor where animals here and around the world need us most, as this pandemic continues.
These emergency grants continue to help animals across several continents, in countries that have been hard hit by COVID-19. We have so far assisted 26 organisations helping animals in Lebanon, Palestine, Nepal, Uruguay, Colombia, Cambodia, Thailand, India, Tanzania, the Philippines, Indonesia, Egypt, and Australia.
