Animals in disasters
Several animal welfare charities have disaster relief response teams designed to help animals affected by natural disasters.
This can often be the most effective way to reach as many animals as possible, and to prevent disease spreading.
For example, since the earthquake in Haiti, the World Society for the Protection of Animals has provided veterinary treatment to over 50,000 animals, restocked veterinary supplies, and helped to show Haitians how to look after their pets and livestock in disaster situations.
There are also a number of charities in America who can help you adopt individual animals (usually dogs) from Haiti.
