Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted on Sunday, June 3rd, releasing hot lava and thick clouds of smoke nearly six miles into the air forcing thousands of people to evacuate. Towns and villages are covered in ash and destroyed leaving animals sick, injured and starving. Help us help them.
We're working tirelessly to save the animals who are so much a part of the lives of people who have already lost so much.
We need your help.
The animals we’re working to save in Guatemala are beloved family pets, injured livestock, and strays with no one else to look out for them. Help provide food, clean water, emergency shelter and deliver life-saving medicine to treat burns. Help us help them before it’s too late.
"Seeing the impact of the volcano here is devastating. The government and humanitarian agencies are doing a fantastic job. Right now, our work is to help those animals in dire need; injured, without food or water and at high risk of disease. Our aim is to help those who are in shelters first and once safe to do so race to those who have been left behind."
