PETA US Calls On UN to Add Relief Supplies for Animals to Shipments Entering Gaza

Posted on by Dan H

Donkeys, dogs, cats, and other animals in Gaza are injured, ill, starving, and dehydrated. They’re mostly forgotten, yet they urgently need medical supplies, food, and other types of aid.

PETA US is yet again urging the United Nations (UN) to ensure that essential supplies for animals in desperate need are added to aid deliveries going into Gaza. The situation is becoming increasingly dire, and while we’re painfully aware of the political, cultural, and logistical challenges, this crisis doesn’t just affect humans: animals are also helpless victims of this human conflict.

Borders are still closed, but PETA entities and partners stand ready to offer all possible assistance and cooperation – as we’ve been doing for over a year in Ukraine, to help animals suffering there.

How PETA Helps in Times of Crisis: Donate to the Global Compassion Fund

PETA Germany and its partners have been on the ground in Ukraine since the country was first invaded. Their determination and grit have helped reunite thousands of animals with their families after they were separated amid deadly shelling. Rescuers in the field repeatedly return to dangerous areas to help dogs, cats, horses, and other animals left behind, who are suffering from severe emotional distress, dehydration, starvation, and infected wounds.

After this year’s devastating earthquakes in Turkey, PETA UK’s brave team rushed to ground zero to help rescue frightened animal survivors trapped under the rubble. They provided cats and dogs with urgent veterinary care and, when possible, reunited them with their families.
