[ANNOUNCEMENT] Help the pets in Japan!

Most of us have probably been following the news closely ever since Japan was hit by a magnitude-8.9 earthquake on March 11th, followed shortly by a tsunami which wiped out most homes, leaving thousands displaced and homeless.
As donations are pouring in for the victims of the earthquake, let us not forget their fur pals too.

If you need a reason to donate and help, please check out the video below.

Honestly, I was terribly touched by the above video and could not watch beyond 2.06 minutes.
If that dog could do the above for his canine friend, shouldn't we as humans do more for them?

Anyway, both of the dogs shown in the video have been rescued and I hope that they will make it through.
And that the owner is still alive and would be able to reunite with his fur pals soon.
There is an article for the above video, check it out HERE

I was googling on where I could donate to save the pets in Japan when I chanced upon this BLOG.
Therefore, I'll just share some of the information from that site on my blog too.
If I'm not wrong, unclaimed pets might be put to sleep if the owners do not make a claim within 72 hours.
And that is something very sad because these pets do not have any choice or rights for their own survival.
Furthermore, with thousands still missing, its feared that their owners could possibly be dead too.

I just hope that perhaps while we pray for and donate to those stricken by this tragedy in Japan.
We could also do the same for these helpless creatures.

"Donate to Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (JEARS).
This group is comprised of three private No-Kill animal welfare organizations in Japan; HEART-Tokushima, Animal Friends Niigata and Japan Cat Network. No animal rescued by JEARS will be surrendered to Animal Control (where they would be at risk for euthanasia after three days) under any circumstance. They rescue, reunite and rehome lost and abandoned animals.
The PayPal donation address is

"Support the Animal Refuge Kansai. This organization, which has facilities in Tokyo and Osaka, has set up a fund for their shelters. They are preparing for what is predicted to be a huge influx of homeless animals from disaster areas. ARK already has some facilities in place and a team of experienced staff able to deal with traumatized animals. The building of emergency shelters may be needed as well. Says ARK: "We will use our resources and know-how to help as many animals as we can, following this terrible disaster."

"World Vets is currently coordinating relief efforts to help the animal victims in Japan. The organization is sending supplies and preparing a group of first-responders who will be able to offer immediate aid to animals on the ground. Donate through their website."

To help the victims in Japan, please check out this Yahoo Page.
I've made a donation via World Vision Singapore, however, you may pick a charity organisation of your choice.
This Yahoo Page lists down some of the charities that are currently supporting the victims of this tragic disaster.

Let's keep Japan in our thoughts and prayers as they brace through this tough period.

Yes, it's really sad but I believe Japan is strong enough to brace through!
