BlogPaws Disaster Response Network: Paws For The Balkans‏

As part of The Blogger Disaster Response Network, I am joining BlogPaws, Pet 360 and World Vets in the global disaster response effort to the Bosnia and Serbia flooding by spreading the word so that our voices are amplified and our efforts magnified to help pets in need.

Catastrophic floods following three days of extremely heavy rain this month have left large portions of Bosnia and Serbia submerged and millions of people and animals in desperate need of help. Thousands of animals have died from the immediate impact of the floods, but many more livestock and companion animals require urgent assistance.

World Vets is deploying to the region to provide support for animals that have been impacted by this disaster. Animals are often not the primary focus during massive disasters and World Vets is committed to bridging this gap and helping them during their greatest time of need. They depend on your help to provide life saving support for these animals.

Donations can be made to help the animals who need medical care, food and shelter at this link:

Dr. Jessica Vogelsang helped bring together BlogPaws' Be The Change For Pets, and World Vets to form the Blogger Disaster Response Network (BDRN) in 2012.

Where was I that I missed this? Our ex-neighbors were Serbian. Very nice people. I hope World Vets can work their magic.
