How can we help the human and animal victims of the devastating earthquake in Japan?

News about Friday’s 8.9 magnitude earthquake that struck northern Japan continues to roll in and, as of this now, the death toll is predicted to exceed 1,300. Our hearts wrench as we watch the footage of the devastating destruction and we wonder how we may be able to help…even a little bit. The Red Cross is accepting donations to assist the humans affected by this disaster and for those who would like to help animal victims of this tragedy, American Humane Association has created a relief fund to which they can donate.

At this moment, there is no official news available on the status of  “Cat Island,” (Tashiro Island), although the speculation is that it has been submerged by the tsunami’s surge.  Cat Island, located on Japan’s vulnerable eastern coast,  is the home of 100 elderly humans and hundreds of cats.

  1. I think we need to take care of all of the homeless animals here in the US before we go helping Japan or anyone else with theirs. Do you realize how many animals in your very own area need help?????

    1. That’s the spirit Sandra. Maybe people with enough money to spread around will choose to donate locally and also choose to donate to relief efforts in other countries. No need bring your sour grapes to the discussion.

      1. IT IS A GOOD HUMAN THAT SPREADS THE NEED WHERE NEEDED WE HELP ALL COUNTRIES NOT JUST OUR OWN!!!!! I LOVE ANIMALS AND HAVE 3 CATS , 2 OF WHOM ARE STRAYS AND I LIVE IN CANADA WE HAVE OUR ANIMAL RESCUES HERE AS WELL AND I EVEN FEED STRAYS OUTSIDE AND AT MY WORK AND ASSIST A RESCUE , I WOULD LOVE TO GO TO JAPAN AND ASSIST IN THE RESCUE OF ANIMALS I DONT HAVE THE FLIGHT MONEY I LIVE PAY TO PAY BUT ALWAYS WILL HELP ANIMALS NO MATTER WHERE OR WHAT TERRIBLE DISASTER, XO MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE PEOPLE AND ANIMALS!!!!!!

  2. Love and kindness knows no boundaries. It recognizes no “best” countries for us to help. Compassion and love should be equal for all living species everywhere. I want to do what ever I can to help our animal friends and people in Japan today. They need our love and help so much right now. I will help where ever I can in this world each and every day. Sometimes it’s a friend next door and sometimes it’s a kitty in a far off land.

  3. My thanks go to all those that help those who are in need. I never donate because I can’t make ends meet as of now but today I did donate to World Vets because of the devastation and empathy that they need. I feel so bad for the people and animals over there in Japan. I know I wouldn’t want to be in that position and would welcome any help that came. I would lose so much hope if I knew there was no help out there. They need us and as God’s children I would hope we would help those in need anywhere.
