Animal rescue operations begin in Japan

Tokyo, Sun, 20 Mar 2011 ANI

Tokyo, Mar.20 (ANI): Operations have begun in Japan to rescue lost and injured animals affected by the March 11 devastating earthquake and tsunami.

 

Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, or JEARS includes three Japanese animal welfare groups- Animal Friends Niigata, Japan Cat Network and HEART-Tokushima. These groups are coordinating to find and rescue animals affected in Japan tremors.

 

David Wybenga of Japan Cat Network group, said their group is working to find lost pets and reunite them with their families.

 

"We want to take those pets and hopefully reunite them with their families once the families can figure out what they want to do," The Fox News quoted David, as saying.

 

David stressed that, since the quake, ensuring food and shelter for humans remained an enormous challenge, due to which animals were neglected.

 

He further said their organization is not saying that animals are more important than humans, but they want to ensure that animals are not forgotten.

 

Isabella Gallaon-Aoki of Animal Friend Niigata told that after the quake and tsunami, it's been difficult to find pets that are still alive.

 

"We have been up to the areas that were most devastated by the tsunami and to be honest having been in several of the different areas the concern seems to be everything is basically wiped out there - people, animals they're all dead," Gallaon-Aoki added.

 

The growing concerns over spreading nuclear radiations many pet owners are fleeing the country and abandoning their pets. JEARS says it facing trouble finding accommodations for the surge of unwanted pets.

 

"The thing that's got to be done is somewhere has to be found to put the animals that have already survived that have nowhere to go," said Gallaon-Aoki.

 

It has also been reported Nestle Purina USA announced that they will start delivering pet food and money to local shelters and rescue groups.

 

"We need the infrastructure and the supplies to keep these animals alive, probably for a very long time," said Galloan-Aoki.

 

JEARS has said that they will continue to help rescue animals despite all the hardships that they will face. (ANI)
