If we'd seen a movie of what is now going on in Japan, we'd say it was too far-fetched, to incredible to be believed. An earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear event at 4 reactor in the quake zone. What next - Godzilla and a meteor?
But we're seeing and believing it now as the awful events unfold with perfect clarity and horror. One minute, life is normal; the next, nothing will ever be the same again.
There are so many worthy charities to support at this time of need for Japan but there are three in particular I wanted to bring to your attention if you wished to support those that are pet focused:
World Vets - World Vets responders are on the ground in Japan working with Japanese animal welfare groups
Search Dog Foundation - six SDF Canine Disaster Search Teams are on the ground in the Tsunami zone looking for survivors and bodies
Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support - a coalition of HEART-Tokushima, Animal Garden Niigata and Japan Cat Network, three groups that have been rescuing and rehoming animals in Japan for many years.
Thank you for chipping in what ever you can. Every little bit helps.
