Will Aid Come for Animals in Gaza?

Because dogs, cats, donkeys, and other animals in the Gaza Strip are dying of starvation, dehydration, and untreated injuries, PETA sent an urgent letter to Secretary-General of the United Nations (U.N.) António Guterres this morning asking him to ensure that essential supplies are added to aid deliveries going into Gaza so they can reach animals in desperate need.

Animals in Gaza Are Victims of the War

Animals don’t belong to religions or have nationalities and don’t own bombs or tanks—yet they suffer in all wars. The displaced, abandoned, or injured animals in Gaza urgently need help right now. We’re asking the U.N. to ensure that relief supplies for animals, including veterinary medical provisions, are added to those sent to the Gaza Strip as it plans how to deliver aid to the region. PETA entities and partners are ready to offer all possible assistance and cooperation, as we have been doing in Ukraine, to help animals suffering there.

How PETA Helps in Times of War: 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 thousands of animals reunite 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 others left behind who are suffering from severe emotional distress, dehydration, starvation, and infected wounds.
