Thread Starter 
i subscribe to pet alerts newsletters & this came today and i thought some of you guys might like to help if you can. i'm going to post it here in the lounge so you call all see it, and one of the moderators can move it to SOS if they think it should go there instead (but i think the more people who see it, the better) thanks for reading, please keep it at the top so everyone gets a chance to see & read it


Dogs, cats and other animals who survived the tsunami are
now in desperate need of clean water, food and veterinary
care. The World Society for the Protection of Animals is
engaged in a special relief effort. Please consider making
an emergency donation today, and thank you for caring!

Dear Friends,

The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)
urgently needs your help to care for animals in the
tsunami zone. As a new year begins, the world is united in
its shock and sadness at the terrible human tragedy
following the disaster. In the face of such overwhelming
human adversity, it is all too easy to forget the animal
victims of the crisis... but not for the people of WSPA.

With over 50 years in global animal care, WSPA's Animal
Rescue Team is hard at work for the animals who lost so
much. Every penny donated to this appeal will be spent on
improving the lives of animals in the tsunami affected region.
Please donate today: http://www.care2.com/go/z/20528

Here's what your emergency funds will provide:

* Food & water for the homeless pets: Dogs and cats suffer
greatly during disasters that remove their normal food
supply. Wet food is critical as a water source, as water
supplies have become contaminated by salt water - making
animals ill.

* Mobile clinics to deliver medicine & care: Specially
outfitted vans allow veterinarians to travel throughout
the disaster zone treating animals in need. These are also
critical tools for vaccination programs to stop local
governments from resorting to dog poisoning as a rabies
prevention program.

* Establishment of an emergency reaction team: Creating an
organized and equipped coordination group to help all
animal welfare organizations, veterinarians and government
officials to work together in the coming weeks and months.

* Rebuilding & Training: WSPA will continue to work with
local animal groups and veterinarians to deliver ongoing
aid to animals, to rebuild animal welfare facilities, to
provide disaster preparedness training and to deliver
supplies where they are most needed.

Your gift of $30, $50, $100, $1,000 or more will mean the
world to the animals whose normal lives have been so
devastated by the tsunami. Please give what you can.

Won't you please donate today?

Thank you so very much.
