1) Objective

IFAW dispatches emergency response teams to any and all areas around the world where animals are in distress. Natural disasters include fires, floods, severe storms such as hurricanes and tornadoes, drought, earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. IFAW also responds to disasters due to human causes, including oil spills, nuclear reactor accidents, financial crises, armed conflicts and rampant animal cruelty and neglect (puppy mills, dog fighting and hoarding). IFAW is helping animals when they need it most during disasters through the IFAW Disaster Response Grant Project.

IFAW’s Disaster Response Grants are possible through generous support from The Walt Disney Company and IFAW supporters around the world. Any man-made or natural disaster impacting animals where physical or financial assistance is needed to support local response and recovery. Examples of man-made disasters (but not limited to) are: political conflict, financial crisis, large scale cruelty case. Examples of natural disasters (but not limited to): extreme weather event, earthquake, wildfire, flood.
