Paws for Japan - Help From Across The Waters

The news that is coming from Japan just breaks our hearts, as we are sure everyone else's as well.  I think (we hope) the United States learned a lot from the devasation that was left when Hurricane Katrina/Rita hit the South Coast years ago.  The animals that were left behind was heart wrenching.  We did allow animals to be brought with our humans during Hurricane Ike, so I think we did improve on that aspect. 

Unfortunately, the people or the animals in Japan really didn't have much warning about the devasation that was about to take place.

The World Vets have declared Thursday, March 17th "Paws for Japan" Day.   They will be raising awareness of the World Vets effort and encouraging people to donate to their vital work.

The HoundDogs along with other pet blogger pals and Be the Change for Pets, are joining paws today March 17th to raise money for our pet pals in need over in Japan.

Please consider shelving the green beer, just this once, and spend the day with your fellow pet bloggers getting the word out. I’m just one voice out there, but there are so many of you with so very much collective power in your voices- we need your help!

The World Vets website can be found here.

  3. We were all so sorry to hear what happened in Japan, and we are praying for all who are there!
