In Which We Help Japan's Animals
I know many of you have already donated, or are planning on dontating, to relief efforts in Japan. They need it, and many of us have so much.
Unfortunately, pets have been devastated as well, and are so often left to fend for themselves in a crisis.
I hope everyone will consider taking just a small portion of any donation they are planning to make , and consider giving that to an organization that is specifically providing animal relief.
World Vets is an organization that provides assistance to animals around the globe.
From their page:
"World Vets has been monitoring the situation in Japan with regards to the impact of the earthquake and tsunami that has recently hit the island nation. We are currently working to coordinate relief efforts for the animal victims affected by these unfortunate disasters. We have made contact with US Army veterinary associates stationed in Japan as well as Japan based animal charities and World Vets veterinary volunteers who remain on standby. At this time, we have supplies ready to go and are preparing the deployment of a first-responder team to carry out an "on the ground" assessment and provide initial aid. We will post all updates and progress of our efforts on this page.
Your donations are urgently needed to coordinate aid for the animals in Japan. Any amount will help!"
I’ve joined Blog Paws Be the Change in declaring Thursday, March 17th “Paws for Japan” Day. We will be raising awareness of the World Vets effort and encouraging people to donate to their vital work.
Every Little Bit Helps.
