Is it really the pet owners’ responsibility to rescue and take care of their pets even in a disaster?
I strongly believe that animals should not be treated in this cruel way during a disaster. But who is going to be responsible for protecting these animals when a disaster hits? What about the law? I saw countless animals that were abandoned and left in a tragic situation. Animals cannot speak for themselves. It needs to be made clear that humans are responsible for taking care of these animals.
Is the responsibility of the government to protect these animals suddenly dismissed in a disaster? Can we just let animals be abandoned and left to starve to death because it cannot be helped? I feel that we all need to think about this.
At this point, we may never be able to re-enter the no-entry evacuation zone to provide food and water for the abandoned animals in this area. Isn’t it against Japan’s animal protection law to not allow these abandoned animals to even be fed? Aren’t there so many things that the government should be doing right now to save these animals?
We need your help! Your donation to Animal Rescue Fund allows us to keep doing anything that we possibly can to help the abandoned animals in the no-entry evacuation zone. We would greatly appreciate any help that you can give us. Animal Rescue Fund does not have its own no-kill animal shelter. Because of this, we are bringing the animals that we rescued to a pet hotel in Fukushima Prefecture for a temporary stay; we are transporting the animals one by one to our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. We just don’t have enough room in our hospital to allow us to bring all of the rescued animals down here at once.
