Brazil Floods & Mudslides
|Catastrophic floods in Sao Paulo and mudslides near Rio de Janeiro are linked to over 1,000 deaths (as of January 31st). In the hard hit towns of Teresopolis, Nova Friburgo and Petropolis, an unknown number (estimated in the tens of thousands or more) of animals are without food, water, shelter, or vet care for wounds and disease. Stray animals have no survival resources, due to absent humans. Care-given “pets” were left behind or lost, some orphaned when caregivers died. Emergency crews report innumerable dead or dying dogs, cats and horses.||
