Bo lists 5 ways to help Japan's animals & shares "Help" video
The power of our planet leaves me both awestruck and bewildered. My once pleasant dreams of treats raining from the sky and fire hydrants bigger than the Empire State Building are now haunted by images of destruction and despair.
Occasionally, the heaviness is lifted from my slumbering heart as I catch glimpses of humans who, though stripped of all worldly possessions, don huge, infectious smiles as they are reunited with beloved pets they thought certain had perished.
ARK will accept as many animals as possible, those made homeless from the TOHOKU-PACIFIC earthquake and tsunami which occurred on 11th March. Any donations will be used for the animals made homeless in this terrible disaster.
Like our individual groups, our collaboration will be staunchly no-kill. Any funds donated will be strictly and explicitly reported as well as expenses. Money and resources will be used strictly for rescue, care and support of animals in crisis due to the earthquake and tsunami. And while I first imagined cats and dogs, we can not yet know what animals beyond that we will be in a position to help.
In response to the recent earthquake and tsunami, WorldVets has reached out to the veterinary community in Japan, specifically in Sendai – an area affected by the tsunami where animals are reported to be isolated and injured. Working with a large coalition of Japanese animal welfare groups and international aid organizations, World Vets has already deployed a first responder assessment team and is currently mobilizing their resources to setup ongoing support activities.
