Due to Friday’s 9.0-magnitude earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent after shocks, Japan is suffering from what its prime minister is calling the “worst crisis since WWII.” The country’s northern coast has been totally devastated, leaving the land, the people and their pets in ruins. We want to share with you some pics and videos from Japan.
Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, have fled or are missing, leaving their beloved animals to fend for themselves. Some people are reunited with their dogs and cats after the earthquake and tsunami hit, but many are still missing and trying to survive. The shelters and rescues are full of capacity and without volunteers and donations, many of these organizations won’t have the resources available to rescue these pets, leaving many with no hope for a new future.
Help Japan’s people and animals to recover from this dramatic environmental catastrophe and tragedy in donating 5$ to the American Red Cross here. Thank you!
