Today, the online animal community is banding together to help those animals by raising money for World Vets. As of March 16, World Vets is in Niigata, Japan with a shipment of veterinary supplies. They are headed toward the hardest hit areas to make assessments and provide aid. World Vets veterinarian Dr Koji Fukumura will be arriving in Tokyo on Friday and will be staying long-term as an in-country coordinator and to provide direct assistance to animals in need. Several World Vets responder teams are currently on standby as they assess the situation and collaborate with groups in Japan. So if you have even just $5.00 to spare - please donate via chipin to World Vets and help get veterinary care and basic care items to the animals of Japan.
You can also help by donating de-worming medicines, vaccinations, fluid replacements, wound treatments, and cages. Donations of these items can be shipped to: World Vets headquarters, 802 1st Ave N, Fargo ND 58102
