Great people helping the animals ❤️ Hope for shelter for them all soon…God Bless! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
There was a group of around one hundred community dogs living in the area of the blast. Volunteers are now feeding and caring for these friendly street dogs. Even in the darkest moments, there is the light of compassion!
Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has been looking after the animals found in the blast zone created by the explosion in Beirut on August 4.
It has been a week since Beirut was crippled by an explosion that left at least 171 d.e.a.d, according to the New York Times, thousands injured and even more without homes. Also affected by this d.e.v.a.s.t.a.t.i.n.g event were the city’s countless pets and animals.
Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (BETA) is on the ground in the Lebanese city working hard to help the community dogs and lost pets that found themselves in the e.x.p.losion’s blast zone.
According to the rescue, BETA’s founder, Helena Husseini, has personally visited the b.l.a.s.t zone several times to look for m.i.s.s.i.n.g pets and animals in need of immediate medical assistance, to assess the damage of the “e.x.p.losion” on both pets and street dogs and cats, and to feed the hungry animals she finds in the area.
BETA says the number of pets m.i.s.s.i.n.g or d.e.a.d because of the explosion is unclear, since new reports of m.i.s.s.i.n.g, reunited and found animals continue to come in.
Miraculously, most of the 100 community dogs fed by locals living in the blast area prior to the e.x.p.losion appear to have survived the d.e.s.t.r.u.c.t.i.v.e event. Since the locals the dogs depend on for food evacuated the area following the blast, BETA is making an effort to supply the dogs left behind with food and medical care.
Helping BETA with its life-saving work is SPCA International. The animal welfare organization has committed a $20,000 grant to BETA to help them with the immense challenges posed by this t.r.a.g.e.d.y, along with the additional issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic and Lebanon’s economic crisis.
