FOUR PAWS brings hope to the last wild animals of a city ravaged by war! FOUR PAWS International

Dear friend,

FOUR PAWS rapid response team has been able to provide food and urgent veterinary care to a bear and a lion, the last animals of Montazah Al-Morour Zoo in Eastern Mosul, Iraq. For the last three months the zoo was on the front line of an armed conflict between the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Iraq army. The zoo was nearly destroyed and most of its animals including a lioness, monkeys and rabbits were killed or died of starvation.

Although alive, both animals look miserable and are suffering from many diseases caused by malnutrition and lack of veterinary care. Both the bear, Lulu, and the lion, Simba, have very bad teeth, in addition the bear suffers from pneumonia and the lion has ill joints. Their cages were polluted with debris. FOUR PAWS accompanied by local volunteers provided the animals with food and first aid. The cages were cleaned and the bear and the lion were provided with urgently needed help. Watch the video and see how incredibly dangerous the situation there is.

FOUR PAWS launches its first Stray Animal Care project in Thailand

It is estimated that there are about 730,000 street dogs across Thailand. Many are sick, injured or covered with mange and fleas, these dogs are an ever-worsening problem, first and foremost for the community which may not able to handle the problem on its own. FOUR PAWS wants to help Thai communities through our stray animal care programme starting on Koh Chang island, Thailand.

We will focus on running community outreach and school events to raise awareness and create better understanding about street dog welfare.
You can find more about this project here.

Two rhinos babies were killed for their horns

A horrible incident occurred at Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage (South Africa) which was supported financially by FOUR PAWS in 2013 and 2014: While taking the volunteer caregivers hostage, a heavily-armed poaching syndicate mutilated the two 18 months old rhinos Impi and Gugu and removed their horns.
Gugu died outright. Impi had to be euthanized the following day because of the severity of her injuries.

We are deeply shocked and call on the South African government to forbid the export of Rhino horn and withdraw draft regulations released this week. Read more about that brutal attack on our website.
