While many still recovering from the outcome, a Lebanese animal rights group Animals Lebanon is helping Beirut residents who lost their pets in the tragedy.

The non-profit organisation managed to organise search parties using social media and on-ground campaigning.

A search party was successful as a video of a Beirut resident reuniting with his dog was shared on 'The National' YouTube channel.
