Yesterday, Kristen Stilt of the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (ESMA) posted on the group's Facebook wall that "things are getting worse by the hour. Food will run out Tuesday and we are desperate for funds."
She added that "our volunteers are acting as courageously as they can but it is extremely dangerous to be on the streets. As soon as they can get out, they will be getting to the zoo, pet shops, etc., where many animals are in distress. We are raising an emergency fund to prepare for all of this."
Another organization, identified as EMRO on the Facebook page, mentions that its personnel are currently in "hiding" and are "protecting their homes."
The Society for the Protection of Animal Rights in Egypt also has a Facebook page where it's reported that at least one organization has 600 animals now "and they are running out of food. Looting in the street."
The dangers, combined with an imposed curfew, appear to be adding to the present challenges.
"With the curfew, there are no restaurants, food or gas. Basic goods will soon be in shortage," Sandmonkey, an Egyptian blogger said via Twitter, according to CNN.
If you wish to support ESMA's work at this difficult time, the organization accepts donations online.
