Canadian Group Helps Animal Quake Victims

A group of Canadians is going to Peru to help the animals.

Canadian volunteers are going to Peru to help survivors of the magnitude 8.0 earthquake that devastated the central coast of the South American country last week.

But the volunteer group won't tend to wounded citizens. These medical specialists will tend to often-overlooked survivors: pets.

More than 500 people were killed and 1,000 injured when the quake levelled buildings, highways and 34,000 homes on Aug. 15.

The Canadian Animal Assistance Team (CAAT) is sending 31 volunteer veterinarians and technicians to the country next week to treat Peruvians' wounded animal companions

Here is a link to CAAT
