World Vets Japan Disaster Relief

vets, sick petsOne of our favorite charities is in need of YOUR support. The first team of people from World Vets has arrived in Japan and have met up with Animal Friends Niigata . World Vets has been monitoring the situation in Japan with regards to the impact of the earthquake and tsunami that has recently hit the island nation. They are currently working to coordinate relief efforts for the animal victims affected by these unfortunate disasters. In addition, they have made contact with US Army veterinary associates stationed in Japan as well as Japan based animal charities and World Vets veterinary volunteers who remain on standby.

Your donations will help provide vet supplies and vet teams where they need help the most.
Also, if anyone in Japan or with connections to someone in Japan has a large space available (warehouse, modular building, large enclosures, etc.) where animals could be sheltered during this crisis, please either comment below or on the facebook page of World Vets, whichever is the easiest. We will make sure their CEO Dr. Cathy King gets the message.

They are working with several local resuce groups in Japan, and there is a need for additional space for animals that are being rescued (in the areas of Hikone, Shiga, and Niigata).

We will also be at the Super Pet Expo this weekend in Chantilly, VA, so if you are coming to this, we will also be accepting donations in person here on behalf of World Vets.
