Last week, Nashville, Tennessee was hit with terrifying, deadly tornadoes. It was devastating for all who live there and love the city.

People were killed and many are hurt. Animals were also affected. Country stars were deeply concerned for the people of their cultural hub, and Miranda Lambert is concerned about not just people, but the animals. She’s been working on helping animals displaced by the tornadoes.

Lambert visited Metro Animal Care and Control in Nashville over the weekend to visit the animals and see what she can do to help. She shared the following video encouraging people to donate.

She encouraged people to donate money or supplies and volunteer at their local shelters. According to iHeartRadio, “She promised to match all monetary donations made to her MuttNation Foundation up to $37,500 with the goal of raising a total of $75,000,” and “In less than 24 hours, $11,000 was raised for shelters. As of Monday (March 9), $29,000 has been raised towards the $37,500 goal.”

Lambert also reminded those who cannot find their pets, that it’s likely they will be found at their local shelter, especially when the sounds and winds calm down and animals come out of hiding.

We are truly happy to report that Karma, who was rescued in January, has befriended Kalpana and Holly.

Since they met a few days ago the trio has been joined at the hip.

The three of them have gone swimming in a pool and have taken strolls together. But mostly, they enjoy embracing one another with their trunks.

Because Karma is blind, her world was both lonely and dark before she was rescued.

Now her loneliness is gone and she has a family of her own.

Thank you for making her rescue possible!

Someone kicked a Golden Retriever so hard until he almost died.

Right after rescuing Masik from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCstF... (1.8 million views). We received another call on the Hope For Paws emergency line. A Golden Retriever was laying down for many hours, unresponsive, and Loreta Frankonyte and I knew it was an emergency. Of course, there was no way for us to know how badly he was injured (nothing was visible), but we could tell that something was wrong internally.

After the rescue, we named him Antonio, and rushed to see Dr. Pedraza. He told us that looking at the ultrasound images, it looks like he was kicked really hard. He didn't believe that the dog was hit by a car because there were no signs of that - no road rash, no broken bones, no visible trauma that is always present in cases where dogs are hit by cars... it was a hit that injured his liver and spleen.

Because of the injury, Antonio was bleeding internally, and the doctor told us that if we didn't get to him that day, he would have bled internally and would have died within hours. After the surgery, he continued to our friends at The Little Red Dog: http://www.TheLittleRedDog.org and the rest of this story is in this video

When you donate to Hope For Paws, you are enabling us to spend more time rescuing and less time fundraising for these surgeries.

If you can, please join us today and become a Hope For Paws member - even a $5 monthly donation would be an amazing help: https://www.HopeForPaws.org

Grounded BUZZARD nursed back to health!

Common buzzards (also called hawks in the USA) are quite common patients here at the centre. This one arrived with us after being found on the ground with a nasty injury below its left eye. Luckily, Maru was on the case and soon had the bird feeling good as new! Apologies for the filming in this video... Simon had the camera!

Orphaned Baby Foxes meet their human carers!

This time of year is known as 'orphan season' here at Wildlife Aid. From now until the Autumn, orphaned and injured animals start flooding into the centre and every pen at the centre will be full! This year, our first new arrival was a very cute fox cub, who arrived at the centre after being abandoned by his mother. Here is his story...

New Van Will Help Us Save Countless Animals!

Simply surviving on the busy streets is an everyday struggle for homeless cats and dogs, but at In Defense of Animals India, we're doing everything we can to help them, and to change attitudes about them. Now, we're celebrating a major gift that’s going to help us save more lives at our Lonavala Center! LEARN MORE

Volunteer with the Animal Rescue Team

One of the most commonly asked questions for our Animal Rescue Team is, “How can I volunteer?” Our team has—and relies on—a strong network of volunteers to help us make a real difference for animals in rescue and disaster relief work. We truly depend on them to help us get this important, lifesaving work done.

One of the most common mistakes prospective volunteers make is waiting until a natural or man-made disaster strikes to begin the application process and to begin proper training and preparation for becoming an Animal Rescue Team volunteer. Unfortunately, by then, it’s too late. If you want to volunteer, it’s important to apply before a disaster. If you get everything done early, you, like our many other volunteers, will be ready to deploy when animals need our help.

I can’t speak enough to the impact people feel from saving animals in need. If you want to make a difference, this is a way to do it. I encourage you to start your application today. With hurricane season on the horizon, our team will be ready to deploy at a moment’s notice - The Humane Society of the United States
