After watching this video that has been making it's way around the internet, I immediately searched for which organizations were taking donations to help animals affected by the earthquake and tsunami. While the focus in Japan is on helping people affected by the devastation - and rightly so - as an animal lover and owner, I am also concerned about the countless animals affected by the disaster.
I urge you to donate to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support. It's a coalition of three groups - HEART-Tokushima, Animal Garden Niigata and Japan Cat Network. Their intention is to keep animal rescue on the agenda, provide shelter space and coordinate some earthquake/tsunami animal rescues.
I've donated on behalf of my dog Stella and all of the Sugiura dogs that have been in our lives. I hope you will too!
