Natural Disaster in Japan

My dear furriends. We’ve all heard about and seen the images from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I posted in Twitter asking where we could send money to help the animals that are victims of this disaster. It was easy to find links of where to send money and things to help people, but I couldn’t find anyone focusing on saving animals. @kurousanohaha, who lives in Japan, saw my tweet and was kind enough to send me this link: Animal Refuge Kansai. Edit – just did my donation. It does the donation in yen, so you’ll have to look up the exchange rate to figure out how many yen equal what you want to donate in your currency.

I know there have been a lot of appeals lately for money, but this has been a bizarre year for unusual natural disasters all over the world. My mom’s old, and she can’t remember ever seeing so many natural disasters happening in so many places so quickly, one after the other, like there’s been the last year or so. I really hope we can all dig down a little deeper and find an extra dollar or two to send. There are a few thousand of us anipals here on Twitter, and if we each just send a dollar that would be a few thousand to help save animals suffering because of the earthquake.

You can also give money to the SPCA International. And I just found out from Life with Cats that the American Humane Association is also collecting to funds targeted for Japan.
