Here’s How You Can Become A First-Responder And Save Animal Lives When Disaster Strikes

For more than 20 years, GreaterGood has raised millions each year to impact lives around the world, and we are so grateful for your support. Every daily click at GreaterGood.com helps us continue with vital projects around the world.

One of them is helping animals survive a natural disaster crisis.


When natural disasters strike they do so without regard for species. News stories often cover the people displaced or injured by disaster, but seldom show the whole picture – disasters affect animals too!

Animals need rescuing when faced with storms, floods, fires, or earthquakes, just like people. They may need physical rescue from flood waters or debris. They may need immediate medical attention for burns, dehydration, or lack of food. They may lose their homes, their families and need to relocate. Humane organizations and first responders in disaster zones are their chances of survival.
