Paws for Japan: Help World Vets Help Japan Animals

Together, we can make a difference far greater than any of us can do alone.

Today, the online pet community is coming together as we have done so many times before... this time, to help the pets affected by the earthquake and tsumami in Japan. We're helping spread the word and raise funds for World Vets, on the ground and helping the animals in Japan. To find out more how you can help, visit BlogPaws Be The Change for Pets.

World Vets is in Niigata, Japan with a shipment of veterinary supplies. They are headed out toward the hardest hit areas to make assessments and provide relief. You can also follow their updates on the World Vets Facebook page and on Twitter.  More from CNN on how World Vets is helping support animal rescue efforts in Japan.


A look at the animals who need help. Thanks Your Daily Cute for posting this video.

Together, the anipals on Twitter showed what one caring community can do.

On March 17, 2009, we participated in the very first PawPawty on Twitter. Today, celebrating its second anniversary, the PawPawty anipals have raised nearly $50,000 dollars for animal welfare organizations all over the world. Well done mai pals. Thank you @FrugalDougal for being a great pal to @CosmoHavanese! And today, the anipals are rallying again with a “We ♥ Japan” Pawty, to help the anipals who need it most in Japan.

Together, we can make the our planet a better place, one person at a time.

Every donation helps, no matter how big or small. You can donate to World Vets by using the Chip In widget on our sidebar to the right, or donate here.

Earlier this week we showed you how the animals from the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation (SDF) are helping the people of Japan. Dog Bless You fans came together to help spread the word and now the SDF dogs are on the ground helping in Japan. Now it's time to help the animals too. Here's some great info from Reader's Digest that shows even more ways to help.
