An animal-rescue team is scouring villages near Kathmandu to help the four-legged survivors of the devastating earthquake, many of which are important to their families as sources of income or pets.
The devastating human toll of the Nepal earthquake has been well documented, but the quake also wreaked havoc on many animals, which will make the return to normalcy for people that much harder.
In rural Nepal, domestic animals are traditionally kept below the house, which means many were killed when their homes collapsed. So many rural survivors of the quake are now without a primary source of food and income.

They're in need of the same assistance as humans: food, water, and shelter. (See "10 Pictures You Haven't Seen Reveal Destruction Deep In Nepal.")
