You’ve seen the news from Japan and probably a lot of the clips about dogs being rescued and reunited with their owners. I was particularly touched with clip about two dogs trapped in the tsunami, one was injured, the other wasn’t–both were undoubtedly scared. The uninjured dog stayed with his friend until they could be rescued and now they both are being cared for.
Aid for something of this magnitude needs our help and Blog Paws/Be the Change for Pets organized Paws for Japan to promote World Vets, a veterinary organization that helps animals wherever in the world help is needed. World Vets (a IRC 501(c)(3) organization) is now coordinating relief efforts to help Japan in its current crisis and today, March 17, is the day we are blogging about this.
If you can help, either by spreading awareness through re-blogging, twitter, facebook, email or by making a contribution, however big or small, it will go a long way toward helping dogs, cats and other animals separated from their families, injured, trapped and in need of rescue. To do this, either go here to the World Vets site donation page or here to the “Japan Animal Aid Chip In” icon on the Blog Paws/Be the Change for Pets link to make your donation.
I’m getting mine ready right now. Please note, this is how I’m wearing my “green”! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
