Three hundred hours of service and more than a hundred and thirty animals recovered. This is the budget of the intervention of the ENPA in Emilia, in the areas affected by the shock of May and June.
Organized in record time with a real mobilization, the rescue operation was immediately taken within hours of the earthquake, when the aid of the Animal Protection began to flow at the base of operations for San Felice sul Panaro, from which are being given of the entire region.
The place was also Isotta, the mobile unit of the ENPA for the animals involved in various emergencies, engaged not only in attivià rescue, recovery and safety of the pet, but also in the activity logistics sorting of materials and genres Staples between towns affected by the earthquake.
The main problems faced by the volunteers involved both the safety of the animals and the recovery of those injured were trapped inside their homes or fled the area after the shock, and the sorting of pet kennels, catteries and shelters still usable.
Were set up real mobile shelters outside the tent, where the animals were not always allowed, and was set up a real chain of solidarity to find a temporary custody to all animals left homeless.
I can personally add, is that there were many people who did not leave their furry friends, if they were not allowed in the tent cities were mobilized to create their own private tent cities, located in the gardens or in the ground outdoors, or finding refuge in caravans and motor homes.
Inside the shelters that allowed access to the animals, volunteers have counted more than a hundred hairy, and are committed to offer support for the coexistence between animals and humans in confined spaces, providing a support service psychological provided by veterinarians, aimed both at optimizing the mutual cohabitation, both to relieve the stress of the animals, that they, like the owners, showed emotional states of stress and fear caused by lived experience.
I will conclude the article dantovi numbers, reported by reliable sources and safe, to what has been done.
Populations and for shelters affected by the earthquake, the ENPA has distrubito total 22.5 tons of pet food, 46 kennels for dogs, 8 wards for cats, 70 kennels for cats, food for ferrets and birds.
And yet, aviaries and veterinary equipment and material for shelters set up stock.
