Helping the animals in Haiti
If you want to donate to help the animals in Haiti (but don’t forget the people!), there’s good news. The Animal Relief Coalition of Haiti (ARCH) was developed by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA). Many other organizations, including the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the ASPCA have joined the coalition. ARCH is meeting with the government in Haiti and will oversee the animal relief efforts. Unfortunately, the Humane Society of the United States has chosen not to work with ARCH.
Heifer International has been in Haiti for 10 years and projects involving 16,000 families. They have issued an emergency appeal for funds.
When making your donations, please make sure that your money really will go to help the animals.
