Today in Port au Prince, the joint ARCH team began its field assessment to see what we can do to help the animals that are such an integral part of the Haitian community.
Pictured here is Dr Juan Carlos Murillo, WSPA’s longest serving disaster management veterinary officer and a member of the ARCH team in Port au Prince, as he checks a Haitian dog to determine the state of his health and treat any lesions he might have had.
As Dr. Murillo says, "The animal was as normal as can be expected for a dog that survives day by day. We can say our friend "Lucky" really honours his name as he became another survivor of Haiti's earthquake."
