"When a disaster of this magnitude strikes, people and animals living in the same community all fall victim to the devastating consequences. Many thousands of animals will likely be badly affected by the earthquake, alongside their human companions and owners."
-Rahul Sehgal, Director Asia at Humane Society International
"As a complement to the humanitarian relief, we will focus on providing veterinary assistance and supplies, sheltering and caring for lost and abandoned animals, and vaccinating dogs and livestock to prevent disease outbreak... we'll be assessing day by day to make sure our rescue teams are also safe,"
"Local organisations are reporting shock, blunt force injuries and death among the thousands of street dogs and cats in their communities. Residents are rushing to locate backyard farm animals and pets, but there are no temporary sheltering solutions available for them even when found,"
