Last weekend I saw The Adjustment Bureau (great movie by the way) and I wish right about now that someone up there would make an adjustment already. In addition to the thousands of lives lost in Japan, the immense property damage, the radiation scare, and the over-all ‘this just sucks’ comes a new frontier of pain – the animals. Captured on video, which I won’t share because it will just make you cry, man’s best friend has also suffered horribly from the events of last week. Unfortunately, the dogs and cats and other pets affected by disasters such as these are often forgotten.
It’s not just that they need our attention, they need our help. Here are a few ways you can do something:
- Global Animal
- Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support
- Animal Miracle Foundation
- The Conscious Cat (this site has links to World Vets and other local Rescue Organizations)
- Animal Refuge Kansai
- The National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (this is where I made my donation – you can read an article about their efforts here: Dogs Risk Their Own Lives To Save Others)
