RUMOURS of animals being Euthanized - NOT TRUE

Via - Japan Earthquake Animal and Rescue

Here's an official report from The Emergency Disaster Animal Relief Headquarters & it's translation (Thanks to The Boasen's):










In the aftermath of the great earthquake disaster of eastern Japan, after hearing a false rumor circulating that dogs and cats housed in animal shelters in the disaster area are being euthanized, we make the following announcement.

We understand that there is a great deal of anxiety not just about animals, but also about the inability to make contact with affected areas, and we ask that you please remain calm. Upon the occurrence of this disaster, the usual protocol for euthanizing lost dogs and cats that go unclaimed following a certain notification period has been suspended.

At the Emergency Disaster Animal Relief Headquarters, relief and management is underway such that cats and dogs affected by the disaster will not be euthanized. This is in accordance with a decision made following the Great Hanshin Earthquake that euthanasia of disaster stricken dogs and cats is not undergone, a decision which is still in effect today.

Presently, on March 17th at the Emergency Disaster Animal Relief Headquarters, base establishment and food delivery arrangements appear to be underway, but the inability to secure gasoline is making progress difficult. Fear driven purchase and stockpiling of gasoline will prevent relief supplies from reaching affected areas. We ask everyone again to please remain calm.

This concludes the announcement by the Emergency Disaster Animal Relief Headquarters.

NOTE: We gots a pawfect prize package in the mail on Friday from KC and Nikita, we'll show you Monday what we gots!

Cat Island (Tashirojima) Japan

We knew nothing of Cat Island Japan, until the tsunami hit. Of course, us kittehs and the mom went and searched the interwebs high and low (just like many others) to see if any news had of the fate of this tiny fishing island, located near the epicenter. While there is no official news, there has been buzz from other places - which gives us hope! We is sendin off lots of hard purrs to Bast fer dem furries and non furries in Japan.

Each video is apx 10 minutes long, but it shows you some great insight to the Island.

Part 2

A lot of speculation as to the fate of Cat Island, is buzzing around everywhere. World Vets are getting veterinary supplies and a first responder team ready to deploy to Japan. You can find World Vets on Facebook as well.

From a commenter on The Conscious Cat:

"I have a friend in Japan who managed to get in touch with people who knew about Tashirojima – people and cats are said to be okay, but there was a lot of building damage and they need bare necessities for humans and cat food… The Japanese organizations said they couldn’t help at the moment (my friend was very frustrated) and he’s checking for some other foreign organisations which maybe could help. He also found out that a Japanese defence forces’ helicopter landed there this afternoon. So that’s hopeful. Lots of volunteers are going to be needed there to help rebuild the island."

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support (via facebook)
Just to give everyone an update on Tashirojima, the cat island. The people and cats are safe but short of food. A volunteer looked into transporting food by boat, but the is too much debris in the water. A helicopter is the only way. The army will probably get a helicopter ready soon so we are looking into the possibility of asking them to take cat food too.
