Lost and Injured Pets in Japan Need Your Help ASAP

The news has been full of coverage on the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan.  Because of the tremendous impact on the Japanese people, there’s been very little news about the injured and lost pets created by this natural disaster.  Remember what happened with Katrina?  Well, a similar thing is happening to the animals in Japan.

I’m all for helping people first, but I also believe that if we are able to, we should help the animals too.  Imagine if your dear cat was separated from you.  I know Furball would freak out.  He hid under the couch for a day when we got hit with a very minor earthquake.  I can’t imagine what he’d do if it was magnified exponentially, followed by a giant wave of water.

From Fortune Cat to Pikachu, cats are one of the most beloved and cherished animals in Japanese culture.  In fact, there’s even a Cat Island located about 9 miles off the coast of Japan.  It’s a popular tourist attraction because it’s got a huge population of well kept feral cats who outnumber the actual human residents.  Cat Island was hit with pharmacy 20-foot waves.  Fortunately most of the residents and cats survived unscathed, but they really need aid and supplies.

If your heart and wallet are big enough, the American Humane Society is accepting donations to support local animal relief efforts in Japan.  100{456796300b989ac2391159a2df073ed1ad38074dfcdb28494d5d1df8ab5972d8} of donations earmarked for Japan animal relief will go to helping animal victims in Japan.  The American Humane Society is not even deducting administrative costs from the funds.

I also came across another way you can help simply by doing your regular shopping for natural pet products.  I signed up as an affiliate for the Only Natural Pet Store because they occasionally send me coupons that I can share with my readers.  This month, they’re rallying everyone together to help pets in Japan.   The Only Natural Pet Store will donate 5{456796300b989ac2391159a2df073ed1ad38074dfcdb28494d5d1df8ab5972d8} from all sales generated from referral websites to animal relief organizations in Japan.
