and i'm sure that, if he could actually type and send me a message,
it might go something like this:
how are things with you?
i know you are pretty far away from the earthquake, tsunami, daily after schocks and
the trouble with the nuclear power plant, but, my human (the sweet and lovely, janet) and i think about you often and thank the stars above that you are safe.
you know that i am a shiba ken and my ancestors are from japan.
i can't help but feel a little helpless and i really would like to do something to try and help those like me and other animals that might not be getting the love and attention they need.
janet found some sites that i would like you to share with your friends.
we need to help our four-legged friends who are suffering, too.
thank you, so much....please tell koji that i have
found a great place for us to run and play....you know...for when we do finally meet.
If you’re looking for a way to help out the people and animals hurt and left homeless in Japan due to the earthquake and tsunami, here’s a collection of sites:
Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS) is a coalition created to positively support rescue efforts for the animals who have been affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Japan.
World Vets is an international veterinary aid organization that provides “free veterinary aid, resources and support during times of disaster all over the world”. World Vets is collecting veterinary supplies and medicines through the group’s website as well as cages and cash donations. The donations will be used to assist the first-responder team the organization will establish to house and treat injured and lost animals.
Humane Society International is helping to keep people and their pets safe. They’ve made a substantial emergency grant to their animal coalition partner, arranged for the purchase and shipment of more than $100,000 in needed veterinary and other supplies, and helped to set the stage for emergency animal sheltering operations in the devastated areas of northeastern Japan. In the coming days, HSI will continue to support these crucial efforts.
