IFAW is a world leader in emergencyresponse:
In the USA, IFAW helped ederal andstate agencies develop disaster-responseguidelines and contributed to legislationrequiring evacuation plans or animalsduring disasters.
Ater the devastating earthquake in China,IFAW was the only international animal welare organization invited to help cats,dogs and arm animals in 18 villages.
IFAW’s bear rescue center in Russia haspioneered hand-rearing o orphaned cubsor return to the wild.
In India, we provide veterinary care andround-the-clock bottle eeding to orphanedleopard cubs, baby elephants and babyrhinos ... some have lost their mothers infoods, some to poachers.
IFAW is also the global leader in oilspill animal rescue.
 We have responded to 25 oil spills in 15countries. Following the
Treasure
oil spillcontinued long ater the emergency adedrom the headlines. IFAW kept working with valiant caregivers over weeks and monthsollowing the res. As wounds healed andanimals regained their strength, their release was met with tears o joy. Whenever horrible disasters like thisstrike, IFAW veterinarians and emergencyresponders rush to the scene ... rescuingdeenseless creatures, large and small.in South Arica in 2000, we led a massiveoperation to clean, rehabilitate and releasean entire population o Arican penguins ...saving 19,000 lives.
Sometimes it’s an individual animalthat desperately needs our help.
 With our partner organization Wildlie Trusto India (WTI), IFAW is hand-raising a pair oorphaned clouded leopard cubs, ound by villagers in northeast Assam. Our plan is torehabilitate these very rare cubs and returnthem to the wild.
“This is the frst time clouded leopards have been admitted to the IFAW rescue acilities in northeast India,” 
said WTI’s Bhaskar Choudhury.
“It provides an important indicator o the presence o this species in the Indo- Bhutan region.” 
IFAW responds whenever animals arein danger ... rescuing cats and dogs ...administering antibiotics to arm animals ...saving orphaned wildlie and returning themto their natural homes.

IFAW’s expertise was a criticalfactor in the successful releaseof 372 stranded penguins inBrazil – the largest in South America’s history.
In times o disaster, everyone’s rst concernis naturally or human saety. Humanitarianorganizations rush to aid people, otenconronting complete chaos, and can’t stopto look ater pets. IFAW’s role is to get theanimals out o harm’s way.IFAW rescuers scour fooded streets, charredorests and crumbling buildings looking or animal survivors. We provide veterinary careand shelter, and set up hotlines to reunitecats and dogs with loving owners.
