Being the first team of animal responders on the ground for Tacloban City, the PAWS-IFAW Disaster Relief and Emergency Response Team immediately did feeding of animals in the affected area as they went on about their Rapid-Assessment work. After several flight delays, the said team just arrived from their Tacloban-Cebu-Manila flight at 1:30 am today and team members are currently meeting with individuals and agencies to come up with a strategic distribution of food and medical help for animals by next week.

Note: Deadline of November 25 has only been set because future disaster-relief runs need to be scheduled on a weekly basis and the fact that most supplies can be purchased nearer the affected areas. We do not want to end up with donations in-kind which our responders will not be able to physically bring with them together with other medical and food supplies.

We will post about the succeeding disaster-relief runs as we get the photos and the updates. Our team thanks those who have sent in their donations – we are compiling a list of donors names which we will put out in a future facebook post.
