Right now in Chile, 77 active wildfires have burned 714,000 acres of farm land, vineyards and wilderness, causing incalculable damage to people, animals and the entire ecosystem. Thousands of people, including volunteers from around the world, are working day and night to control the fires.As veterinarians, we are focusing on those without a voice – animals, the silent victims of this tragedy. Hundreds of horses, livestock, companion animals and wildlife have been killed or seriously injured. Teams of veterinarians are volunteering in the affected areas, but there is a huge lack of medicines and supplies to treat the animals.

We want to help raise funds for animals through the Chilean Veterinary Medical Association
(COLMEVET).

Please help us assist the animal victims and their caretakers.

What is the donation money been used for?
Bales of alfalfa and hay
Food for foals
Milk substitute for lambs and foals
Water containers
Medicines
Medical supplies
Fencing materials
Field hospitals constructions

Actualmente en Chile existen muchos focos de incendios forestales, más de 537.000 hectáreas incendiadas simultáneamente, la mayor tragedia forestal vista hasta ahora y la que está generando daños incalculables a las personas, al ecosistema, flora y fauna chilena.
Como Médicos Veterinarios queremos ayudar a recaudar fondos destinados a los animales y por medio de COLMEVET (Colegio Médico Veterinario de Chile) se busca coordinar todos los esfuerzos, por lo que invito a depositar a quienes se encuentran en Chile, a la cuenta del COLMEVET  cuenta corriente Banco Chile 18655-04, RUT 70020300-K. Si te encuentras en el extranjero puedes ayudar donando por medio de Gofundme!

Se despiden atentamente,
