Send some love to PeTA volunteers in Haiti

PETA has joined the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti (ARCH) group of animal organizations working to address the desperate needs of animals in Haiti. We've also been in touch with rescuers from foreign emergency services and the American military, including those aboard the USNS Comfort, asking them to offer water, food, and care to displaced Haitian animals.

We are no strangers to helping animals when disaster strikes. For nearly 30 years, PETA has worked to save countless animals in the U.S. and around the world. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, PETA teams rescued more than 300 cats, dogs, birds, and other animals and helped care for thousands more at emergency animal shelters.

The situation in Port-au-Prince is bleak for all living beings right now, but you can lift the spirits of those working so diligently for animals in Haiti by posting a quick message of support to rescue workers right now.

By sending your own brief message to those working to help cats, dogs, and other animals left without adequate food or veterinary care, you'll also receive periodic updates on their efforts to help.
