Helping Pets in Japan

This is from Care2.com:
Below is a list of a few organizations helping animals in Japan. I’m sure there are many more, so please feel free to list them in your comments below. All of these organizations can use donations, and I’ve provided a link so you can easily make yours. Japan is a country who loves it’s pets, and while the animal lives are not valued more than people’s, they are still valued. Thanks for not forgetting them in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.

Animal Refuge Kansai (ARK) gives homeless animals the chance to live a happy life, free from fear or danger, in a loving home. No discrimination here. They often take in abused, abandoned, unwanted, sick, injured, and senior animals. So, it’s no surprise that they are doing their best to take in as many animals as they can manage who became suddenly homeless on March 11 as a result of the Tohoku-Pacific earthquake and tsunami. Your online donation will help them provide care for more homeless animals. You’ll find a direct link for donations through paypal on their home page.

World Vets is a non-government 501c3 nonprofit organization (NGO) providing veterinary aid around the globe in collaboration with animal advocacy groups, foreign governments, US and foreign military groups and veterinary professionals abroad.  Their work spans 25 countries and 6 continents and addresses not only veterinary issues, but also human health issues impacted by zoo-notic diseases in developing countries.
