The Problem

Disasters can be deadly as they can strike at any time with no warning

 


The Christchurch Earthquake (22 Feb 2011) was deadly. It also struck with no warning.


Wellington SPCA Chief Inspector – Ritchie Dawson – who has supported World Animal Protection’s Disaster Assessment Response Teams, describes what it was like on the ground in the aftermath of the Canterbury Earthquake (Feb 2011). Ritchie explains how volunteers put their lives on the line to save peoples’ pets and why making a plan now, for your pet animal, is critical to ensure these important members of your family are not lost forever.
