Subject: Egypt Evacuation Town Hall Mtg Feb 10 at 10am Dean Acheson auditorium Main State
Friends of Animals: If you are an Egypt evacuee and pet owner, I would urge you to make every effort to attend the Egypt Evacuation Town Hall meeting tomorrow morning at 10am in the Dean Acheson auditorium. Please spread the word!
I plan to be there along with AFSA State VP Daniel Hirsch. I want all pet owners to know that the Egypt Pet Support working group that AFSA has established with participation by FLO, Humane Society US and Humane Society International as well as FAFAN, will continue to support you until you are reunited with your pet.
The Dept has announced that if you want to repatriate your pet, Embassy Cairo will get your pet to the airport with the necessary documentation and vaccinations, but it is your task to arrange for transportation back via commercial air cargo and to pay any costs associated with this. See the notice on Escape Cairo or post a comment or question on this Facebook page.
AFSA, FAFAN and HSI will discuss establishing a Fund to help defray costs and we are confident we can raise a significant amount to help get your pets back home. We will also see what additional administrative support we might be able to provide to you.
Susan Johnson - AFSA President
