When the floods and landslides hit, there was no warning. People and animals fought for their lives - and not all of them survived.
Thousands of people have fled for shelters. To save themselves, many of them had to make the heartbreaking decision to leave behind their dogs, cats and other animals.
Chile was devastated by the intense floods, and animals are now suffering. Food and water is about to run out in some towns. Thousands of animals are at risk of starvation and disease.
The Chilean government asked our disaster response team for help, and we've answered the call.

The situation in Chile is chaotic, but I'll keep you updated about what we're doing to save animals' lives.
I could not find any mention of any activities related to Chile in their web pages.
...dogs, cats and other animals whose lives are at great risk from this historic flooding. We're already receiving urgent requests for clean water, food, and medical care, so we must act fast!
