This book considers the needs of animals in the aftermath of disasters and explains the importance of looking to their welfare in extreme events.The authors explore how animals are affected by specific disaster types, what their emergency and subsequent welfare needs are and the appropriate interventions. They describe the key benefits of management of animals to populations and discuss preventative measures that can be taken to reduce risk and build resilience. They also include a summary of recent debates and public policy advances on animals in disasters.The book covers livestock, companion and wild animals, with case studies to show how the concepts can be put into practice.
