The province of Misamis Oriental and Cagayan De Oro city were hit by flash flooding and landslides on 16th January, after continuous rainfall at the tail end of a cold front. In some areas, the water has risen as high as 1.8 metres.
More than 30,000 people have been affected by the event, many of whom are impoverished pet owners. Network for Animals are working in coordination with the provincial veterinary office to provide medical assistance with pets, as well as food for the human victims.
Food is scarce both for humans and animals. The government is giving rice and and small groceries but considering the number of evacuees, they can only give so much. Since the priority is human, it is clear that not much attention and budget is provided for animals.
Many of the affected communities are accessible by boat only. The flood has wreaked havoc for a week already and it is estimated that it will take another week or more before the it subsides, that is, providing there is no more rain.
