So far, Cely and the other rescue workers have treated approximately 500 animals, including dogs, cats, chickens, parrots, rabbits, tortoises - and of course, monkeys. (After the arrival of the baby monkey, two more howler monkeys arrived at the clinic for care.) Cely says the number of animals in their care increases every day.
To help animals in the aftermath of the Ecuadorian earthquake, you can donate to Darwin Animal Doctors' campaign to raise funds for animal rescue in the disaster zone. Financial aid will also help fund an animal vaccination campaign, which is crucial in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
"With this increased diseased environment with animals dying all over, and the stagnant water everywhere, you will have an increase of rats," Cely explains. "So we really want to do preventative medicine, and start vaccinating. Any financial aid coming in would be to help these animals and the human families."
