Father's Day 2017

Give your mane man a World Animal Gift for Father's Day

Lifesaving care for Pam the puppy

In 2015, Cyclone Pam tore violently across Vanuatu in the South Pacific Ocean. Pam the puppy had eaten a poisonous fish that had washed up on shore. Pam was sick, emaciated and terribly dehydrated and her owner could not access medical help for her. When we reached Pam, she could barely fill her tiny chest with labored breaths or lift her head. It looked like we were too late. But thanks to our supporters, our Disaster Response vet, Naritsorn Pholperm, was there to give Pam the medical care she needed. He rushed to Pam’s side giving her glucose and fed her water through a syringe. With each mouthful, more life came back into Pam’s eyes and her tail began to wag. Remarkably Pam the puppy made a full recovery. Today, is she a healthy, happy dog and her owners are grateful that their beloved pet survived.

When you give the Lifesaving care - Special Father's Day combo gift to your hero, you'll be giving lifesaving antibiotics, vitamin shots and pain relief to animals like Pam who are most vulnerable during disasters.
