PETA Asia senior campaigner Ashley Fruno was one of the first members of an international animal rights group to reach the disaster area in Japan, and her team—including Isabella Gallaon-Aoki of Animal Friends Niigata and other animal rescue professionals—hit the ground the day after the devastation.
Thanks in part to a grant from PETA's Animal Emergency Fund, Isabella and others in Japan are providing food, water, and care to animals abandoned when their guardians fled to evacuation centers and are helping guardians desperately looking for animals who have become lost in the chaos. They have visited the worst-affected areas in search of animals who need help and remain in touch with the local authorities.
You can help fund critical rescue efforts today through PETA's Animal Emergency Fund. This vital fund gives us the means to respond to all sorts of disasters, from fires to floods to hurricanes. It also helps us advocate for the timely evacuation of companion animals from disaster zones and provide crucial information on how to safeguard animals before tragedy strikes.
Please take a moment to support PETA's critical work for animals who are facing disaster or experiencing its aftermath. Your special gift will be a lifeline of support to those suffering in Japan and wherever else there is an urgent need.
