To help the animals in Japan...

For those of you on Facebook, there is a new group, Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, that is reporting new about the animals affected by the earthquake.

Animal Friends Niigata, HEART Tokushima, and Japan Cat Network are working as a team to try to get as much help to as many animals as they can. Here is a link to their page:

My heart aches for the pets there, who depend on us to be their caretakers and advocates. One sad story posted on Japan News Network told of a petshop caught up in the flood in Sendai. It showed a kitten in a box on a table crying while the shop owner closed the sliding door on the shop saying, 'I'm closing it now in hopes it will keep more water from getting in.'

  4. Thanks for the links - very very useful cos in times like this I always feel so helpless and don't know what to do - I usually give to the Red Cross (have done) but of course the poor animals need help too!! Take care

  5. I can't believe the scale of destruction in Japan. Thanks for putting this info together - I'm heartbroken, but I'll put aside something for animals when I next get paid...

  6. The people running the Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, led by David Wybenga, are great and our #1 is familiar with them. They deserve our generous support

    Thanks for all the links, Teri.
