  1. We must also remember to help families loved ones in all forms. Pets are people too. It’s good to see some stories about this crises that has something to do with the animals. Though I know we also have the people. I’d save my dog too if I were there at that time..

      1. If you have a pet, it becomes a part of your family and you treat it as such, therefore you’re treating it like a person. So yes, pets can be people too.

        1. I agree pets show the humans just how devoted they are something a lot of humans dont even have a clue about but should take lessons on..

          1. I have said it before & I’ll say it again:

            ‘Soilent Green IS people’ should create a more visceral reaction than ‘Hamburger IS cow’.

            When it doesn’t, then we are all in trouble.

            Pets are not people.

          2. ‘Soilent Green IS people’ should create a more visceral reaction than ‘Hamburger IS cow’.

            When it doesn’t, then we are all in trouble.

            Pets are not people.

      2. Last time I checked, humans are scientifically “animals,” so think again before you categorize pets and people under two different things. People are so ignorant sometimes.

      3. I believe that you do not have a pet so pls keep ur mouth shut! Stop commenting that pets are not people.

      4. Dave,
        You are an ass!
        That statement only means that you love your pets and consider them family. I guess you have to have a heart to understand. Why are you even on this site if you don’t care about animals? GO AWAY

      5. No, pets are not people, but they were made by God for people to love and to take care of them. Dogs are loyal animals even when abused. Every person who has a pet should love them and take care of them, If they can’t then they should give them to someone that can.

      6. uhm it doesnt really matter if you believe pets are people or not, cause they are still treated as such for many people and are usually much kinder and loyal than 90% of the human population, so i suppose calling them people would only insult them.

      7. Dave – You are free to have your opinions but i must say you are extremely insensitive and acting like a horrible ignorant in times like this. Shame on you.

      8. Your not so smart as you think you are. Animals are your best friends. I’ll bet you have friends that will become frenenemies someday, but not your pets if you treat them properly.

      9. no! it’s not a news flash, drr. if you didn’t care about animals or others, why would you EVEN BE ON HERE you cold heartless jerk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p

      10. dave,no! it’s not a news flash, drr. if you didn’t care about animals or others, why would you EVEN BE ON HERE you cold heartless jerk!!!

    1. How do you adopt a pet or keep a pet till the owner is found or well? If you know where to go would love to hear back from you.

      1. contact “Last Hope” u may become one of their foster families or adopt. Usually this organization goes to petco or one of the other large pet store chains to adopt out their dogs. By asking a sales person u can usually get the phone number of this or another foster org. good Luck

        1. Go to PETFINDER.COM They have many sources to help one find a rescue, a new home, a pet parent who has lost their furbaby. I got help from them when I found an abandoned Aussie cattle pup. Was able to get him into a rescue that specialized in that breed & get him the right home!

    2. Pete you are pointless and unnecessary! Make a donation and help or don’t make a donation but please just shut up. Everything matters, everything feels, a dog cries out in pain the same as a baby – this is such an awful thing, that should be your observation – doing something about it should be your goal. You can start small, stop making stupid statements.

  2. There is so much need for so many. Every little bit helps. We will be doing our part, even if it is only a drop in the bucket.

  3. Oh thank you so much for this – you don’t see anything (or at least I haven’t) in the news about what is being done for the pets in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami. I am going to help in whatever way I can.

  4. I just made a donation and shared. Please help however you can. The displaced animals really need our help!

  5. Lindsy P–I felt the same way! I just would not have slept tonight, unless I found out if these beautiful dogs were saved from their injuries, fed, and warmed up. To see the protective Springer Spaniel shivering in the snow- protecting his friend–just broke my heart. Is there a way to donate blankets, and food for the animals, along with cages, and wound dressings, etc.?? I hope the shelters are out of the radiation fallout range… does anyone have that information??? thanks!

  6. For anyone who has ever known the unconditional love and absolute loyalty of a dog, please help. No donation is too small. I cannot afford much, but I donated. Please help!

  7. donating now. forwarding the message to others. animals feel pain and fear, too.
    please lets us learn and teach how to honor our furry friends in need.

  8. I’m soo glad you have addressed the issue with the animals over in japan. I believe we should help our four legged friends, just like the ppl of japan. My heart breaks when i think of a dog, cat , or any animal left alone in the cold. I have a dog,and cat . I love the loyalty and happiness they bring to your family.

  9. its not letting me donate?! is there another website accepting donations to help the animals in japan? i already donated to the red cross, its time for me to help our furry friends

  10. We have three dogs and they are such a part of our family. I can’t imagine a day without them. We will certainly do our part to help.

    1. It brought tears to my eyes when I watched the video. That dog would not leave they other dogs side. How faithful. Love your animal

  11. donated and shared link on facebook page — thank you to all the volunteers that provide help for the displaced animal victims 🙂

  12. Hi,

    I have been trying to make an online donation to your organisation for the Japan relief efforts for animals. Havent been able to do so. Please advice on how I can donate for the same. I stay in India and the processing policies seem to be different on your portal.

    Thanks

  13. The National Whippet Club of Canada has made a donation to World Vets and has issued a challenge to all the dog clubs out there to do the same…

  14. oh my gosh i feel so sorry for these dogs and puppies. i feel like crying. i think they should give offers for adoption. i mean who wants to see these homeless dogs on the streets, when they can have great owners like you.

  15. I’m now not sure where you are getting your information, however great topic. I needs to spend some time studying much more or working out more. Thanks for fantastic information I used to be on the lookout for this information for my mission.
