Help Haiti's Animal Earthquake Victims

I am posting this request from Jim Genzale, Owner of WHILE YOU'RE AWAY, LA to help the animals in Haiti. It is my request to you, too. Here is the link to: IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare), where you can donate to help the 2 organizations, IFAW and WSPA to help Haiti's animals:

"The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is working closely with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) to help Haiti's animals in need as part of a coordinated effort called the Animal Relief Coalition of Haiti (ARCH).

This devastating crisis has affected approximately 5 million head of livestock, a large population of stray dogs, pets, and the indigenous wildlife. Many animals are in need of urgent care and major health concerns include the possible outbreak of rabies, leptospirosis, and other disease.

A mobile veterinary clinic is currently being assembled to help as many injured animals and livestock, which will be essential to Haiti's overall recovery. Vaccination and feeding programs must be set up as quickly as possible. You can help by donating toward the purchase of essential items such as bandages, medicines, food, and other necessary materials.

For more information on the relief efforts, you can click here. Please donate as generously as you possibly can.

Also, please forward or share this note with as many people as you can. The humanitarian efforts thus far have truly been inspiring, and I hope we can make a difference in the lives of these suffering animals as well."

Thank you very much for your help.
