ASPCA: Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH)

ASPCA Disaster Relief
Dear ASPCA Supporters,

With hearts and minds focused squarely on the devastating earthquake that occurred in Haiti on January 12, the ASPCA extends its full support to those organizations providing humanitarian relief in the ravaged island nation. Soon, the animal victims of this disaster will need help, too—that’s why the ASPCA has joined the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH).

ARCH was created to address the needs of animals in Haiti in this time of crisis. The coalition is headed by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), and in addition to the ASPCA, consists of a number of animal welfare groups including American Humane, Best Friends, the Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International.

The ASPCA has joined ARCH with the belief that partnering across organizations is the most effective way to address the serious and enormous problems facing animals in Haiti. There are an estimated 5 million head of livestock in the country (mostly goats), a large stray dog population, and an untold number of companion animals and native wildlife all adversely affected by the earthquake.

Currently, a team of experts in animal emergency response is staging in the Dominican Republic waiting to get into Haiti to begin work. IFAW and WSPA have also begun to stock a mobile clinic with vaccines, antibiotics, bandages, food and other supplies in anticipation of bringing direct aid to animals.

The ASPCA has committed to providing logistical support to the disaster responders from the U.S. In addition, the ASPCA stands ready to deploy highly skilled and specially trained members of our own Field Investigations and Response Team to the area.

As part of ARCH, the ASPCA is raising funds that will go directly towards the animal welfare Haitian relief efforts being provided by the ASPCA, IFAW, WSPA and other ARCH members. If you would like to contribute to these efforts, please donate here.

Rescues and Runways Fashion Shows To Promote Pet Adoptions and Support the ASPCA by ‘maurices’

Rescues & Runways kicks off on August 26 with a major fashion show and entertainment at the maurices home office in Duluth, MN.  Rescues & Runways is an exciting new nationwide effort by maurices to support local shelters and the animals they help.  During the month of September, more than 700 maurices stores in 44 states will host pet-themed fashion shows in partnership with their local animal shelter and sell a special charm to benefit the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®).
Each Rescues & Runways fashion show will feature models from each community walking the runway with the latest fall looks from maurices, plus a pet who is available for adoption.  Also throughout September, people are encouraged to support their local shelters by bringing the supplies they need to their local maurices store. Customers who bring in a donation for the shelter will receive a coupon for 20 percent off one regular-priced item. The campaign goal is to collect 500,000 pounds of supplies across the nation.

In addition, maurices is introducing a limited edition Friends for Life Charm, a celebration of the special bond people share with their furry friends. The Friends for Life Charm is just $5.00 and will be sold in all maurices stores beginning in mid-September through October 31. For every charm purchased, $2.50 will go to support the ASPCA and its national shelter outreach program. The ASPCA will receive a minimum donation of $50,000 from maurices, with an ultimate goal of raising more than $100,000.

Humane Society Update On Animals Kept Save From Gustav

We’re Working Hard to Help Animals and We Need Your Help

Teams Keep Animals Safe From Gustav - Watch Our Video September 2, 2008

It’s been quite a Labor Day weekend for our emergency response teams. Since last Friday, they have been on the ground in Louisiana to help with the evacuation of thousands of animals out of the path of Hurricane Gustav.
At the request of the Louisiana SPCA and Louisiana State Animal Response Team, our teams took to the road early Friday morning in our three disaster response semi trucks to help local authorities and volunteers from other humane organizations set up emergency shelters and relocate thousands of animals out of harm’s way.

I invite you to watch a short video of our work in Shreveport, where people and their pets are safe from Hurricane Gustav.

In Shreveport, home to the largest emergency shelter in the state, many of the animals were fortunate to have their families nearby. This win-win situation came out of one of the important lessons learned from Katrina: many people won’t leave home without their pets.

Nor will first responders. Many of the animals we evacuated and cared for belonged to those police officers, fire fighters and other emergency workers. We are honored to help the companion animals of those who risk their own lives for the greater good.

A number of the dedicated emergency workers on our team remember all too well the difficulty of helping the animals in the chaotic aftermath of Katrina. This time, in preparation for Gustav, the emergency shelters were ready to go and were run with great care and attention to detail that just wasn’t possible during Katrina.

As we wrap up this unprecedented evacuation operation, we now turn our focus to meeting the immediate needs of these animals as well as those of future disasters.

The peak of the 2008 hurricane season is upon us. Please bookmark our disaster center for the latest news and video. We’re warily tracking weather reports and keeping an eye on the tropics as other systems are brewing.

HSUS emergency teams are prepared for deployment at a moment’s notice. We hope you’ll consider making a special gift to our Disaster Relief Fund to help us respond to the safety of animals in any emergency.

Thank you for all you do for animals.

Sincerely,
Wayne's Signature
