Animals Lebanon team and more than 300 volunteers coming from all over Lebanon have worked round the clock every single day to help every animal affected by Beirut explosion.
Few hours after the devastating 2020 Beirut explosion that took hundreds of lives and destroyed thousands of homes, Animals Lebanon organized search teams on the ground to help looking for displaced pets and injured strays and other animals in the explosion that destroyed entire buildings and homes throughout the whole city. They are providing as well food and medical care for the pets of the families who were affected by this horrific disaster.
Animals Lebanon and Humane Society International are working together to make sure all of the rescued animals get into a loving home.
HSI sent a team to help on the ground with the Beirut explosion response. they helped make possible new homes for some rescued animals, and others flew to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington to be re-homed.
Here is a compilation of some stories and many happy reunions that brought hope, joy and happiness to so many people.
Animals Lebanon needs your help now more than ever.
With the deteriorating economic conditions, coronavirus consequences, and the devastating Beirut explosion, getting animals adopted in Lebanon is even more difficult and many people are having to give up their pets.
There are still many more animals that need to be rescued. Many animals they are caring for as their guardians are injured or homeless. Cats and dogs that they rescued and are caring for and need to find great adopters. Support for the pets in the affected area to make life a bit easier for their families during this time.
Please donate to their Go Fund me campaign to help them reach every animal in need. https://gf.me/u/yps3k2 or support them through PayPal – https://www.animalslebanon.org/get-involved/more-ways-to-give
